The early bird gets the worm. I hate that sentence. To start with I'm a night owl not an early bird. Secondly, the vast majority of car swap meets start too early. For no obvious reason. But ok, I admit. There's an exception; The Pomona Swap meet. In this part of the world the early morning torture make sense. Especially in August, when it's 95deg F/35degC already around lunch time.
Actually I'm even happy to raise to this occasion, because Pomona swap meet is fun. Yes, it's a bit gloomy in December and yes there's too much non automotive kitsch for sale too. But still it's one hell of a swap meet /car show /car event.
The entrance. At this point, the bed is forgotten. The legs are not hurting yet and you're full of anticipation.
Too much to see in too few hours. How to cope with that?`Drink water, walk fast and try to determine what's available from each seller based on what's on display.
There are cars for sale too. Of all kinds. Loved this 1949 Chevy Suburban...
...and this Mazda Wankel pick up truck!
Many square meters of exotic Inlet manifolds.
A Porsche 914 on parade. A car you don't meet every day.

Some people have a lot of energy. Others have even more. There are those who need more power. Then there are those how have a need for serious power, way beyond what any OEM can provide. Ever.

But if you want super serious power and transform your daily track sport car to a hardcore race machine there are plenty of solutions from Toohighpsi.

Some sleep. Some drink. Some want excitement. Some other are just socializing softly. Magnus, Carina and I felt that all of the above was appropriate when we relaxed from testing, travelling, shipping and shopping.
But more rewarding than anything else is to meet all, literary, amazing people that we meet when we were not alone with the tumble weed, the wind and our howling Amazon at El Mirage.
I was in need of a haircut. So I went to a Barber. Found an amazing guy that I'll never will forget. Ever. Yes, he had prepared most of the people attending The Tonight Show. Including John Wayne.
We took the opportunity to visit Maureen Magnuson too. She showed us the Magnuson Supercharger history and heritage with enviable energy. Yes, she has a Corvette C7 as her daily driver. I mean, what to expect from car girl like Maureen. She and Jerry was a true team.
Next day, Magnus and I drove the famous track nose roadster under the trees. Palm Trees.
