Are there many 140 forum members intending to go to the Northern BKV this year? I've never been and wondered if many people usually take spares/parts along to sell, or is it a case of 'come along and compare your shiny car with my shiny car'?

Cool

Always take spares to sell. Know what you have and your price. Clean parts sell better than rusty/greasy ones. Of course, the desirability of the parts you have has to match the punters desire to buy. Shiny car comparisons are good too!

Note: From personal experience, very few people have money in their pocket now days! The comment that the person would have the part but they only have 5 cash, or less, on them is common. If you have good items it's best to post details beforehand, with prices if you like, and say that they can be collected at the BKV. That way you have a better chance of money changing hands.
