Title: Toy and Lit Show / All Porsche swap
Post by: mr. warehouse on January 17, 2013, 07:37:10 am
Bummer this is no longer held the same weekend as OCTO. But there are plenty of happenings to keep you busy - http://www.lalitandtoyshow.com/related_events.htm

Saturday is a Toy / Lit swap meet held at the LAX Hilton - http://www.lalitandtoyshow.com/

Now in its 30th year, over 1,250 people attend the annual Porsche and Vintage V-W Literature, Toy/Model, & Memorabilia Swap Meet at the Los Angeles Airport Hilton Hotel. The meet has over 225 tables with tens of thousands of collectibles - posters, sales literature, toys, models, factory gift items, press kits, technical literature, small trim items, and accessories for Porsches and vintage VW's. The meet is held in two huge ballrooms on the main floor of the Airport Hilton, 5711 W. Century Blvd., Los Angeles - very close by Los Angeles International Airport. The public is admitted at 9:00 a.m. for $10 each at the door. "Earlybird" shoppers are admitted with the vendors at 7:00 a.m. for $30 at the door. Special discounted room rates are available from the LA Airport Hilton directly at 310-410-4000. Please ask for the special room rates under the "group code PVV."

Sunday is an all Porsche swap  show held at the Phoenix Club (same location as the Treffen)


The All-Porsche Swap & Car Display will again be held on the day after the Lit Meet on Sunday, March 3rd at the Phoenix Club in Anaheim. It’s located at 1340 South Sanderson, Anaheim, CA 92806. This will be our fourth year here and the site is working well. See http://www.thephoenixclub.com/ for details on this German American Club.
Event sponsor, the 356 Club of Southern California will have indoor vendor displays in the FestHalle with 11,500 feet under one roof! Outdoors, we have about 2 acres of room for more vendors, swappers and large grass soccer field for car corrals. Parking has been an issue as this event has grown, but we have solved that problem and we’ll have plenty of parking available to Porsche nuts within 50 meters of the main entrance.
This event will take us back to a simpler time in a very unique setting; to a time when the Internet was not your primary source for used Porsche parts; a time when the local Southern California Porsche owner's gathered each winter to swap, fender fondle, see old friends and appreciate the breed. There will be vendors dedicated to our Porsche hobby and plenty of swap space will be available. If you have a car for sale, bring it and put a sign and information sheet in the window and sell it.
Each car coming in for Porsche display parking will make a donation of $20, so pile as many of your friends in the car as you can! The gates open to the Porsche parking on the grounds of the Phoenix Club at 8 AM. Seeing all the Porsche's parked there will be incredible! The walk-in gate will be open at 8:00 AM and admission will be $10. Breakfast and lunch with a German flavor will be available from open to close. Be sure you stop by the Bierstube to finish off the day. For those wanting to stay in the area of the Phoenix Club on Saturday night, we suggest the AYRES HOTEL ANAHEIM, 2550 E. Katella Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92806 (714) 634-2106.
Swappers will make a $40 donation per space taken on a first come first served basis at the gate on the morning of the event. Indoor vendor space also be available for $80 donation per space taken, but must be reserved by February 15h, 2013. For Vendor display information and reservations, contact Bob Lee at Robert.b.lee@cox.net or 619-518-8645. Swapper and vendors will be able to come in and begin set up at 6 AM. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (http://www.cff.org/).
So, we'll look forward to seeing you and your Porsche Sunday, March 3rd, 2013. Bring whatever money you have leftover from the Literature Meet, your Porsche, Porsche friends and join us for a celebration of Porsche! Breakfast and lunch will be available, so plan to spend the day soaking in the glory that is Porsche. Watch for updates and for information; contact Jeff Trask at NO911NV@aol.com or 949-697-4499 or Pete McNulty at pmcnulty98@aol.com or 949-400-9319. Let us know how you want to be involved!
