Trevor, I went and while there wasn't a whole lot of stuff, mostly Steve's some of Billie's engine parts, plus some other 911 and ??? parts. Outside a couple of guys had parts on trailers, ready for Sunday. But, I was there at noon and people were just starting to get there when I left. I did buy two big boxes of hardware (wavy washers, bolts, nuts). On Friday's Bill Perone had some more stuff I had to buy, as did Whillhoit with his little swap. Then went to a shop in Torance looking for 993 stuff and he had some 356/912 stuff, but nothing I wanted. The thing is I don't need much at this point, and the Boy's Republic is just too far out of the way, so I had already planned on heading home after the Saturday evening.

Steve - Was it at this address?
18071 Mt. Washington St.
Fountain Valley CA 92708

I went last year and it was a ghost town, not a single person. Not sure what I did wrong 🤷‍♂️

Yes That's the place, the parking lot behind OC Art and Home and Harbor Electric Supply. Hard to see, just a big rollup door. The ready mix cement across the street. Costco is at the north end of Mt Washington St

Good suggestion, Ron, but too late to find another location.
