This morning I made it out to the National Western Complex in Denver to take in the Tri State Swap Meet. There was almost too much to look at and explore, and as a result, I didn’t find anything that I needed for the Cougar. Mainly, I was looking for trim pieces, badging, and other odds and ends. While I didn’t luck out on any sweet deals, I did get to see a lot of cool stuff, and a few nice cars for sale. Most of the cars weren’t outrageously priced. There were a few headscratchers, but for the most part, realistic prices.

I waited and couldnt get a good shot of the Torino without someone walking in front of me.
Clean C10. Sold at $9k, if they got full asking price for it.

This one had a sold sign on it by the time I walked by it later. I imagine they got the full $4500 asking price for it. Nice looking J20.

After that, I hit up the Alfa/Fiat dealer on the way home to check out the Giulia Quadrifoglio and the 4c. They had four ‘base’ Giulias in the lot. They’re quite handsome cars. This is the first time in many many years that I’ve gone to a car dealer simply to check out the cars with absolutely zero intention of buying one. They also had an Abarth Fiata in white that I didn’t take any pictures of. I much prefer the appearance of the Miata to its Fiat sibling.

$43k for this one.
And $83k for this one. The sales manager dude come over to me, and I made it clear I was just there to see it in person. There are no $83k cars in my immediate future.
$79k for the 4C. Cool car, but it already looks old to me, for some reason. I’d still take one, though.
