Automotive enthusiasts gather for swap meet

DUNCAN — Cars and car parts lined the Stephens County Fairgrounds on Saturday at the Duncan Auto Swap Meet.

This was the eighth year for the event, which began in in 2007.

More than 500 vendors attended the swap meet, which ended Saturday.

Vendors brought parts as well as miscellaneous items for shoppers to peruse.

Some vintage cars, such as a 1946 Ford two-door sedan, were up for sale, with prices negotiable.

John Boyle, one of the vendors in attendance, has been a part of the swap meet for seven of its eight years.

“I have a lot of parts from a ‘67 Camaro with me,” Boyle said.

He also brought with him various tools and aircraft parts to sell.

“My favorite part is the shopping, though,” Boyle said. “I think I spent more than I sold.”

The swap meet wasn’t just for cars.

Motorcycles and all their paraphernalia also were on the market.

Kelly Horten, one of the inside vendors at the event, sold parts primarily from motorcycles.

“I carry dress-up parts for street rods and nostalgia hot rod t-shirts,” Horten said.

Other items up for sale included clocks, decals and tires.
