    I don’t like the idea of opening up to other brands. I think it would dilute the specialness of an “all Ford” swap. I think it would probably bring in a few more buyers and sellers but, I think you would loose some of the diehard Ford fans because the search for parts needed would be more difficult. As Ford finatics we deal with the fact that most Chevy parts are cheaper to buy (like for like) and they are more plentiful to find. You would also have to change your advertizing as “worlds largest all Ford meet” and, “33rd annual all Ford swap meet”. Do we really want to take a chance on affecting the notoriety of our event. I realize things are getting worse because of the economy but, if we change it now and the economy gets better and things pick back up. Are we going to be able to change it back to Ford only without hurting ourselves and slowing down our recovery? I just think opening it up would be a mistake. Sincerely, Timothy Szany
