The rain which peppered the Veteran Car Club of Tasmania's first ever Longford swap meet in October was a welcome absentee at the club's second meet earlier this month. 

The event saw more than 70 stallholders set up shop on the Longford Village Green to trade in new and old automobile memorabilia, books, manuals, parts and accessories.

Swap meet convenor Ken Watts said the biannual event had once again managed to pull a big crowd from across the state. 

“Car enthusiasts from all over Tasmania come to look for that elusive or must-have part for their restoration or rebuild project, and also of course to socialise with other enthusiasts,” Mr Watts said. 

The next swap meet will be held in October.
