Performance Vintage International was conceived not only as a resource for buying, selling, consigning, and the showing/storing of Speciality cars, but also place where classic cars are maintained and restored to their former glory. We have a constantly changing stable of specialty cars and pride ourselves in appreciating the diversity found in enjoying the many vintages and flavors that all classics offer. Be it a sporting heritage like the venerable Porsche and Ferrari, or a staple of luxury and touring found in Mercedes and Jaguars, each bringing their own character to the table.

356 Club's Swap Meet at The Boys Republic

1907 Boys Republic Dr, Chino Hills, CA

 

The 356 Club Swap Meet will be at the Boys Republic in Chino Hills, California. Similar to the most recent swap meet, we will offer indoor ("in the gym") and outdoor ("on the pavement") swapping locations, and you will be able to set up on February 25, Saturday afternoon.

 

The indoor facility is 8,000 square feet which is 25% smaller than the Phoenix Club; therefore, we are limiting inside table purchases to a total of 45 6-foot tables.

 

At this time, each vendor will be allowed to purchase a maximum of 6 tables.

 

There will be a single registration page for purchasing swap space on the pavement or inside the Boys Republic gym.

 

In addition, with each pavement space or table purchased, you will receive 2 complimentary entry wristbands.

 

Please click here to access the registration page. Or you can copy and paste the link below into your favorite browser
