Haulin’ all you can hold, then return to buy some more. That’s how it works here at the 2015 Spring Charlotte Autofair at Charlotte Speedway in the giant Swap Meet area. And that’s the method many use to scour acre upon acre of collectible auto and truck parts here. Can you imagine a swap meet that has over 8,500 vendors? That’s a lot of classic auto parts. It’s a treasure hunt! Just the place to uncover that hard-to-find part that’s been eluding you. There are two fields (named “Orange” and “Blue”) in the infield area of the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Two more fields (“Green” and “Red”) are located outside the speedway on the parking lot. The swap meet and car corral at the 2015 Spring Charlotte Autofair are sponsored by the Hornet’s Nest Region AACA, one of the largest Antique Auto Club of America regional chapters in the country. They really put on a good show.
There are some interesting displays here at the 2015 Spring Charlotte Autofair, the kind of exhibits you don’t see anywhere else.
