Private Swap Meet - Pre War Packard Parts

Post by 19fatboy66 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:59 am

PRIVATE SWAP MEET July 28 - 30th 2017

Dear Fellow Enthusiast:

You are receiving this personal invitation to a weekend of unique opportunities. We are Rick and Doug Lyon also known as No Mercy Brothers Parts Locators. We are the ones that purchased the entire parts inventory from the estate of John (Hawkeye) Hawkinson in the fall of 2016. This is the property that was featured (March 15) on the season premiere of Chasing Classic Cars.
We are contacting individuals that bought vehicles from the property as well as those who have a particular interest in Pre-War Packards, Specifically pre 1932.
We are anticipating having several things happen over the weekend of July 28-30, 2017. The primary focus will be a private swap meet on our property (11 miles from Hawkeye's). We will be offering those parts we acquired (Pre- 1932 Primarily Packard, Cadillac, LaSalle, some Buick, Lincoln, Pierce Arrow, American LaFrance & Mack Fire Truck as well as all other parts in our vast inventory). All will be available for sale that weekend. The swap meet will run Friday and Saturday with Sunday morning being a wrap up of the event. Our property has 2 garages and several pole barns with many vintage collectibles for your viewing pleasure. Also located here is our family's Bed and Breakfast. We have blocked out the weekend for this event. Room availability is limited so we suggest booking as early as you can. You can find info on the B&B at If you call for a reservation- YOU MUST mention the swap meet or you will be told there is no vacancy. The Bed & Breakfast link is below (for lodging info only). For all other questions, our contact information is below that. Other lodging in the area is available and you can be assisted with that when calling the B&B. There is parking for some trucks and trailers on our property. This is a cash sale unless other prior arrangements have been made. This event will be held rain or shine.
Hawkeye's property will likely be open, under the new owner, to host a gathering/tour and possibly an informal car show. This portion of the plan however is currently developing.
This should be a great gathering of people with a passion for vintage automobiles. The swap meet will run continuous from early in the morning into the early evening on Friday and Saturday, wrapping up Sunday morning. There is no charge to attend the swap meet. If you have any questions, please contact us. If you plan to attend we ask that you please RSVP by June 30th so that we may plan accordingly for food and drinks (lunch), which will be provided at no charge to those attending.

Thank You- Rick & Doug
