2022 Swap Meet A3 front.jpg

VHRA
Swap Meet

Now firmly established as a permanent fixture in the VHRA calendar, the VHRA Swap Meet will once again be at the 1940s Camp in Ramsey, Cambridgeshire. It’s a wartime army base that is under restoration, which serves as an excellent backdrop to the automobilia and Americana on sale and display at the event.

 

Trading and attending is open to members and non-members alike. All we ask is, if you are selling goods, they relate to traditional hot rods and customs, early Fords, vintage Americana or the lifestyle that goes along with it. If you’re trading from an old vehicle, we’ll knock something off the price of the pitch. There’s no pre-entry, simply pay on the gate on the day, either as a trader or a shopper. As well as the Swap Meet, there will be a show area for vehicles that are manufactured prior to 1963.

 

For those that want to arrive early, we’ll be throwing open the doors of the Drill Hall and the NAAFI on Saturday. Camping is available for an overnight stay and included in your pitch fee, which is convenient for an early start on Sunday. On Saturday night we’ll be playing some music, the bar will be open and food will be available. The NAAFI will be open on Sunday from breakfast onwards.

 

Although the VHRA are the host club, the event is in association with both the Ford Model A Club and the Early Ford V8 Club, so you can expect a good showing from their members, both trading and displaying their vehicles.
