Posted on October 2, 2014 at 8:40 AM

Finding parts for antique cars can be challenging, especially the early cars. Some parts you can purchase through commercial vendors, but others are rare and you have to travel far distances to find. Finally, the opportunity to find rare car parts locally is coming to the Mid-Ohio Valley on Saturday, March 1st in Marietta, Ohio. Vendor registration form and flyer is avaiable.

The 6th Annual Winter Swap Meet will be held Saturday, March 7, 2014, at the Washington County Fair Grounds located at 922 Front Street, north of downtown Marietta. The meet will be specializing in antique car parts. Vendors will be selling parts, car bodies, complete cars and accessories for early Dodge, Chevrolet, Ford and other makes.

Some items we know are coming include:

  • 1924 Model T Touring
  • 1928 Chevy Sedan
  • 1925 Graham Brothers Dodge Truck
  • Universal truck bed
  • Hidden turn signals
  • New Model T break and transmission drums
  • vintage photos and diecast cars
  • New reporduction body panels
  • The Coil Doctor

The event is sponsored by the Country Roads T & A Ford Club and the Mid-Ohio Valley Ford and Mustang Club. The event will be held inside the Jr. Fair Building. Admission is $5.00 per person and children under 12 are free. The doors will be open from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Parking is free. Preregistration for a 10 x 10 vendor space is $15.00 or $20.00 on day of the meet. Tables for rent are $10.00 each. Vendor setup is 3:00-7:00 P.M. Friday and 6:00-7:00 A.M. Saturday.

2014 Mt. State T's Tour - Bethany, WV

Posted on June 12, 2014 at 11:15 AM

2014 Mountain State T’s of WV, Model T Tour, September 14-18, 2014

Registration Form

The Mountain State T's have decided to remain in the Northern Panhandle for the 2014 Model T tour. We will once again be staying in the small college town of Bethany. Bethany College is a liberal arts institution and was founded by Alexander Campbell in 1840. There are no fast food restaurants or gasoline stations in Bethany and needless to say. . . . no traffic lights!

We will be staying at the Gresham Inn that is a part of the Mountainside Conference Center. The members of the Bethany Eastern Star organization and the Women's Club of Bethany will be providing us with breakfast in the mornings and dinner each evening. Tours are being planned to visit a museum, a restored village, a cabinet factory, some private collections and Amish stores for shopping. We will have a get acquainted tour on Sunday afternoon, and day tours on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Bethany is located approximately 15 miles north of Wheeling at the intersection of Route 88 North and Route 67 East. Traveling Route 88 North from Wheeling with a truck and car hauler would not be ideal. It would be far better to follow WV Route 2 to just south of Wellsburg and turn right onto Route 67 East. Follow Route 67 East for about 6 miles, then turn right on Route 88 South and then right again into the Mountainside Conference Center.

Ladies: If you have some new craft or sewing project you are working on and think the other participants would be interested in learning about it, please bring your supplies with you and we will have an area in which you can teach others.

Won't you join us for the annual Mountain State T tour in WV. For additional information please contact Jim Bowery @ [email protected] or telephone him at 304-737-2883.
