THOMPSON, CT. Don Hoenig’s original All-Automotive Swap Meet and Flea Market returns to the Thompson International Speedway, rain or shine, on the weekend of November 3rd and 4th. This incredible event is one of the nation’s best and largest such gatherings and is held rain or shine on the grounds of the sprawling speedway complex.

This year will mark the 36th year of buyers and sellers coming together in one place to assist each other in selling or acquiring very special automotive parts all the way up to complete cars, trucks, racecars, trailers, ATVs, snowmobiles and so much more.

Some fifteen hundred sellers are expected to blanket the entire 100 acre race track complex with over a million items for sale to the many thousands of buyers who steam through the gates in this amazing two-day event.

There is no pre-registration for a 30 X 15 foot selling space. Each space is available at a rate of $75.00 and spaces are assigned on a first come, first served basis.

Sellers wishing to set up the day before the event opens may do so for an additional $25.00 per space. That service will be available on Friday, November 2nd, between the hours of 10 AM and 8 PM. Hours of operation for buyers will be from 7 AM until 5 PM on both Saturday and Sunday.

A walk through this massive display of auto related items will reveal just about everything one can imagine in the automotive field. In addition to the items mentioned above, collectors find the Thompson Flea Market to be a gold mine of specialty items for those antique and collector cars that their owners cherish. In short, it is an auto enthusiast’s wonderland of great items just waiting to be rescued and given a new life in a new home.

Don Hoenig’s All-Automotive Swap Meet and Flea Market is a must for anyone who fancies anything automotive. Anyone having questions about the event may call 860-923-2280 or they my visit the speedway’s web page at http://www.thompsonspeedway.com

No I didn't. I wanted to, but we had my great-grandmother's 90th birthday that day. Was there much there?

Thompson's usually better, Stafford's seems small compared to what Thompson usually is.

I'm going to Thompson on the 3rd and Lake Compounce on the 4th. I went to Stafford last Sunday and got a set of gray Monte bucket seats for $10. They cleaned up good so I put them into my 87 El Camino beater.

We left our house at midnight last night and got to the track at 1:00, just to get a good spot.They let us in the gates at 4:30 and we found a nice spot, outside of the track. But there was a lot of room in the track, so we went there. We are parked right next to the infield/pit road wall, just before the finish line. We left early today because it started to pour. If anyone goes tomorrow, we have a white box van, with faded blue malibu doors, my old Monte carlo bumpers, and a bunch of glass...and more stuff at that.

Today was good. We made about $700 total, but with the stuff we sold for my uncle, he made more money than us.
