This article offers facts about swap meets. Swap meets are a long-standing tradition of classic and enthusiast car clubs, though they are sometimes independently organized by entrepreneurs and charities. Once or twice each month on average, and almost every weekend during August, a suburban park or showground is blanketed with beaten-up vans, blue tarpaulins and trestle tables. Swappers are early starters, with many traders camping on-site to take advantage of the 5:00 a.m. set-up and 6:00 a.m. start.
