Swap Meet at the Hyatt!

Only in Detroit Will you ever see this phrase -

Swap Meet Open all day at the Hyatt Hotel

Per the event:
The Ford Flathead is to power as the Deuce is to cars. Built for more than 20 years from 1932 to 1953, the engine proved so robust and adaptable to racing that it spawned a cottage industry of high-performance and racing parts. Today the Flathead enjoys an unequalled resurgence in popularity among both traditional and modern-day hot-rod fanatics.

To mark the 75th anniversary of these two landmark automotive icons, a once-in-a-lifetime celebration takes place in Dearborn, Michigan, August 9-12, 2007. A host of activities that include a swap meet, a concours d’ elegance, cruises, specialty vehicle displays, a drive-in date night and gathering at the Henry Ford’s Greenfield Village, are planned.
I like how your hot-rod fanatic comes in both traditional and modern versions, the way khakis come pleated and flat-front.
