For car enthusiasts all across the country and the world, the Pomona Swap Meet and Classic Car show is on the list of places they want to go to at least once in their lives. Most people who are familiar with the event refer to it simply as the “Pomona Swap Meet” but there is much more to it than a swap meet.
Car builders, collectors and people who just want to admire the various styles of vehicles are drawn to the event because of its sheer size. Whether you’re looking for a hard to find part, a special tool, a rare tech manual, a particular vintage car, or just out to see what strikes you fancy, you will not be disappointed because it’s all here.
Although the Pomona Swap Meet is geared for car enthusiasts, there is something for almost every member of the family. There is plenty of food and drink around and in the swap meet portion there can be found everything from t-shirts to antique wall art. Looking for an interesting piece of furniture to finish off your back yard? You may be able to find just the right thing.
The Pomona Swap Meet has been going on since 1975 and is still gaining in popularity and now attracts car collectors and investors from as far away as Japan and Australia where American made classic and custom cars are admired and valued.
The Swap Meet is held at the LA county Fairgrounds in Pomona, Ca 7 times a year and the next one is scheduled for August 12, 2018. Come early because the gates open at 5am and there’s always a line. If you decide to attend in August, make sure to bring a hat and sunscreen and comfortable shoes because it can get pretty hot and you’ll be doing a lot of walking. Plan to spend several hours because there’s plenty to see.
