Thanks to everyone that came out and made the 36th annual El Camino Show & Swap the Biggest & Best yet! I'd like to thank all the people who help put the event together, from the magazine sponsors, to the printer's, sign painters and every one in between, that have given the event the feel that it now has. Thanks to all my friends that help in so many capacities, I don't have enough space to list them all, but so appreciate them, THANK YOU to one and all! A special thanks to John Thow, my graphic artist and web site designer who designs all the art, ads and event T-shirts. Which I might add were a complete sell out this year, Thank You. Remember, the El Camino event really belongs to us all, let's keep making it bigger and better!

Marshall & Nancy Baker C.C.E.

The swap meet God's were with us as the weather couldn't have been better, both Friday & Saturday. Record crowds and a vendor grid sell-out 12 days before the event made for some great buying and selling. A large array of merchandise, from all areas of classic and vintage motorcycles turned out, something for everyone was the feed back I got.

The Classic Japanese, and the Two Stroke On & off road class is always the biggest and toughest class , was strong again this year. The Classic British class was as strong as ever. The Classic European class is starting to gain in popularity, watch out in the next few years, it will be as big as some of the other classes. A class I especially like is the Trail Bike/Enduro inc, Street Trackers and Cafe Racers is the class to watch in the future as a stretching of artistic muscles. On a sad note the earlier Antique, and Vintage American classes seem to be lacking in representation, everyone's loss, too bad, the great old bikes are from where our heritage comes.

So until our next event, the 44th., annual Hanford Show & Swap, May 19th, 2012 keep checking the Webb site for some interesting new developments and some great additions to our otherwise Great Events. C.C.E.
