Cash is king, as they say. Some of the larger shows have vendors with credit card capability but it is rare to see. Often stuff will get sold while you go off grounds to find an ATM, so be prepared. It helps to have a budget worked out and a list of needs, especially if you are like some of us who buy anything green that seems to be cheap at the time.
And bringing a 90 percent done jeep gives you a chance to do the other ten percent right. It is amazing the things folks can tell you about correctness at a show, just be aware there are many armchair experts out there who are dead wrong. And everyone enjoys seeing an in progress jeep. Even rolling chassis tend to have crowds around them.
What show are you going to??
F Bill-Chasing oversize loads out west
Some flatfender projects, including OD and Civilian jeeps
Several DJ3A jeeps as well, including a custom one with half doors
Looking for pics of 6 x 6 field converted WWII jeeps..
