This year's Porsche Swap Meet in Hershey, PA shaped up to be one of the best Swap Meets in the last four or five years. The weather was absolutely perfect and the turnout was outstanding.
For the uninitiated, the annual Hershey Swap Meet is one of the largest single-day Porsche enthusiast gatherings in the country. It takes place at the Giant Center in Hershey, PA, the epi-center of all things chocolate. Porsche owners and enthusiasts travel from all over - we even spoke with a gentleman who made the trek from Canada - to be a part of this behemoth event.
The Swap Meet is a mecca for all things Porsche. You can go home with a brand new aftermarket exhaust system, a used steering wheel hub from a 1976 911, or a refurbished wheel bearing for a 928. Odds are, if it ever came out of a Porsche factory, you can likely find one at the Swap Meet.
Fabspeed has sponsored the event for almost a decade, and this year was no exception. We had a great time speaking with fellow Porsche-philes and gear heads, and perusing the rows upon rows of obscure bits and bolts for these great machines.
Thank you to everyone who visited the Fabspeed booth this year; we hope to see you all again soon!
As usual, we managed to sneak a little taste of Italy into the party.
