The Pomona Swap Meet

Just about anywhere in the US that you go there is a local automotive swap meet, but there is nothing quite like 'Pomona'. The event started out like any other swap meet back in 1975, but being in Southern California, the hub of car culture, it quickly grew.  Now Pomona is one of the largest automotive swap meets in the world, and regularly runs out of space. Today over 2,000 vendors and 25,000+ shoppers attend the event which is held seven times a year at the L.A. County Fairplex.

If you walk the entire event, you will have traversed over 15 miles, seen every automotive style represented, and run into some of the most interesting people in the world. 'Pomona' as it is known in automotive circles draws buyers and car enthusiasts from around the globe. People from Japan, Europe, Australia, and the middle east come to Pomona to find their next car, or just for the experience.
