Well here we go again !!! First off I must say EVERY SHOW EVERY YEAR NEEDS OUR SUPPORT!!!!!! :)

We at the MTA are a fairly large group of active MV enthusiast's, We have a large group of active members who stand up come out and support all we believe in !! We have location, Center NJ with rt 80 running across very close to a world class fair grounds !!!! Signs at every corner " Easy access to the show , easy to deal with members who run the show, this is a GROUP EFFORT!!! And I think it shows,

We are a Family show, An OPEN to the public show !! We advertise, we are close to 30 thou spent to pull this off, make no mistake we started out with " zero " I say this because ANYONE can do this, Any club can start a show, Personal to them or something bigger, they ALL are what we need to keep our hobby alive !! Others have a lot to offer for those who want to do such stuff, So I say ask :) We went to other surrounding clubs meetings and talked about what we wanted to do, Actually asked, for times as not to interfere with there show or events, We started out in the winter LOL ... We have plowed grass 8 inchs deep 3 days before the events pulling all nighters, These shows do NOT run them selves LOL :) We have grown to where others said " Move closer to other shows so we can stay loaded and just come over !! we have and its working !!

Many that come to our Show have become FAMILY and we look forward to seeing you and them !!! Many who will come for the first time we want YOU to enjoy talk about and come back with a smile !! Now no one is perfect and I have never made such a claim :)

But I as past pres and current pres and past show chair will answer your call 973 219 4499 , and discuss with our members and get back to you with absolutely anything you feel we need to address, As much as we try I have learned it is impossible to keep everyone happy every time, So please remember we are a work in progress, OUR show has grown in every dept. for almost every year we have been doing it, it has grown in at least a few depts. in the last years, It is IMPOSSIBLE to grow for ever , there is just so many people who will come LOL:) But we have noted to have more public than the standard MV show and swap meet,

We cater to VENDORS !! We offer a very very nice dinner for ALL Vendors !1 Friday eve !! We do NOT cheap out !!!!! All we ask is freeloaders realize this is for those who put the work into coming to and supporting our show !!!! :)

We offer 24 hour security for vehicles to display from Thursday am on, We offer a covered building for nicer vehicles that can be LOCKED at night to keep your possession safe and secure !!! We want you to come, we want you to feel we are doing everything to respect you your vehicle your encampment and all we stand for each and every year !!!!

The show is Sat and Sun, BUT Friday is the official set up day, we appreciate anyone who wants to help !!!! Just ask and be a part of what we do !!!! Friday is for VENDORS and DISPLAYERS BUT NOT FREE LOADERS !! LOL ...

W
e do have rules , I will post same rules as since the first show when I have more time, Most humans already do them with out thinking, . drive slow etc....

Looking forward to it!

Last year I set up as a vendor with psycobob, and was disappointed only because I didn't get a chance to personally walk around and see everything, go shopping, meet friends, etc. I was kinda stuck at my spot selling all weekend. No biggie, but this year I will be there just as a spectator, buying parts, so I'm really looking forward to not having to work this time around! :)

See everyone there!

First time attended last year. Great vendor section with lots of different stuff. Bought some things and will be looking again this year. I come from Cape Cod, MA just for the day. Makes for a long day but well worth it. Thanks to everyone who puts this show on. It is a great time.

Been there many times and have never been disappointed.

It's worth the trip to find parts and to see a lot of friends there.

Keep up the good work and thank you for having a great show!

Looking forward to the show. Last year was the first year I brought my deuce down and plan on doing the same this year. Always so much to see and many familiar faces to catch up with.

If anyone is looking for 395 tires. I will have set of 7 Goodyear MVTs, 395/85/20. 6 are 80% tread or better, one is almost new so 95% or better.
Also have 3 steel MRAP wheels if anyone is looking for some.
Can bring tires and or wheels to the show.

I purchased a 8 brand new XZLs for my deuce and in process of swapping them over to my A3 rims.

Can someone start the buy/sell/trade thread? Want to get some stuff posted early to see if I need to load it. I'm only going to have a couple weekends at home before the show happens....and God only knows if it will be raining on those days. I've become a fair weather guy in my old age.

For the buy/sell/trade at and BEFORE the show thread, Can we use just this one as the ALL things ...

:tank:Reminders, If you want to sell IN the show you need to be a Vendor, >>>BUT We FULLY support the BUY SELL TRADE BEFORE THE SHOW ... of people to finish there drop offs and pick ups in the parking lot, We can NOT allow transfer of stuff in the Display area!!!

We have done this since the first show, Scott or I will gladly run the forklift out to unload and load deals that have been made BEFORE the show ... :) Its ALL part of the Hobby and we support the commerce !!! Its good for all of us and we do it too :)

We will have at least one and probably 2 golf carts running sold goods out to the parking lot for vendor support ... to get the goods out of the show safely, We have the fork lift avail from Thursday afternoon on for big stuff ... :tank:

I'm looking for a heavy tow bar. Some members
have tried to sell me there's but the shipping was
the deal breaker. I can pick one up if it's at the show.
Thanks,
