The fender reads Yenko, but we have our reservations on the authenticity of the car. There was no information posted by this '69 RS Camaro with the perfectly consistent rusty patina. The vintage American Racing wheels and slapper bars hint that one day this car may have been a performer, but now the wear, tear, and broken parts leave us wondering what had happened. There was no one to be found to claim the car as theirs, so it's a mystery.

Kacie and Sam of Temecula, California, came down to Del Mar with Napa Auto Parts to help promote the chain. They called out for volunteers to come play their car-facts game show on stage for a chance to win some nice car-care supplies. Our favorite game was the drag race reaction time tree, where people could test their reaction times against the girls' to win a NAPA hat.

Here, Jerilyn Kugel stands proudly in front of her '32 "Muroc" roadster that she shares with her husband, Jerry. Together they run Kugel Komponents, which designs and sells specialized salt-flat roadsters and parts. Their roadsters are treated with a sloped-back windshield and other custom cues. This windshield gets removed for race day, where Jerilyn pushes this car to the 200-mph mark. The 650-horse Magna-Charged LS6 motor really helps get it there. It's not every day you see a 200-mph street car.
The Swap Meet
Swap meets are places where hidden treasures are found. This is where people can bring their collection of parts that are obsolete or useless to find a new home. We discovered some really cool stuff, and advise not to carry any cash if you don't wish to purchase anything--this might help keep you under control. If, however, you are looking to bring home some toys, pack a rolling basket cart so you don't have to carry anything.

This tent had magazines for sale that date back to the early '60s. While digging through, we found some old-school PHR's introducing Project X, our 40-year-old project car.

License plates are a really cool part of the car world. Often they are being used as art. At the swap meet, you could buy all sorts of retired plates from all over the United States and Europe! You can't use them to register your car, but they look pretty cool hanging in the garage. I bought several to decorate the garage.

There were also tons of knickknack items and staples for any garage. It was hard to pass this table by without picking up a couple new tools and supplies. Later, when you see the same items at the local hardware store for three times more, you'll be kicking yourself!
