Assuming travel isn't an issue, but I could only go to one slot car swap meet this fall - which would you recomend and why? I'm considering Midwest, Richfield, Buds, PA, Bob Beers etc. I'm interested in HO and some 1/32.

As a former shopper for years and then vendor for many more , i would love to return to my favorite the Midwest show ! Always had a blast regardless of which side of the table i was on ! And always came home with bargains galore and a smile from ear to ear ! The show is laced with character and flavor of our very own HT membership . Also it's now taken over and run by one of my favorite guys in the hobby and another HT member (AJD350 ) AL DeYoung. AL loves the hobby and does everything he can to grow the show and welcome guests so ya can't ask for more ! So for me i would in a heartbeat return to the Midwest and savor every minute one more time !

FWIW, the most frequent complaint at the Midwest show is "I didn't bring enough money...."
I always feel that way when leaving the Richfield show too but if I had more to spend I think that I would still feel that way......and I go without anything that I'm even looking for.
I think that it would take someone who has been to all of the shows to give you your answer.
How can you go wrong when you get to spend the day in a large room full of people with a common interest that all love the same things that you do. (slot cars):)

I've been on both sides of the table at the Midwest show and a couple others. I know the Richfield Ohio show has always received high marks from those who attend. I know Bob Beers and I'm told he puts on a first class show. I know a few of the folks in Western PA and I hear that's a very good show.
If I had the money and travel budget I'd probably take in all the above, and maybe a national race or two! :)

Western Oa Slot car show November 10th 2012

Guys
Its that time of year again for the 4th annual Slot car show in Monroeville, Pa On November 10, 2012.

Reserve your table now.

At our last show allot of trading and selling was going on. A few dealers and collectors picked up some hard collectable items.

A competition pac was sold at the show along with some store awards. Plus a collector brought in his collection to sell and someone bought it.

Pittsburgh, Pa has allot of collectors in the area that spend like crazy.
