Parts meet scheduled at Frederick fair site

The 34th annual “Indoor and Outdoor Antique Auto Parts Meet and Auto Auction” will be held March 26-27 at the fairgrounds in Frederick, Md.

Sugarloaf Mountain Region AACA organizers estimate that at least 235 vendors were on hand last year for the event. Doors will open at 6 a.m. on the two days, and the auction on the second day starts at noon.

Homestyle food will be available. For more information, contact Robert Clubb at 301/831-0300 or 301/428-0084.

Find car books on the Internet

The Internet can come to the rescue of auto enthusiasts looking for hard-to-find books and other material on the subject. They can try the online book search engine www.BookFinder.com.

BookFinder is a free service that scans an estimated 40 million books on any subject and connects searchers with a network of booksellers.

“Shoppers can order directly from the bookseller of their choice without paying any extra fees or surcharges,” says Anirvan Chatterjee, founder and chief executive officer of the service.

PG schools program seeks donated cars

The Foundation of Automotive and Construction Technology for Students (FACTS) in Prince George’s County is looking for automobile donations. The program is part of the county public schools system.

Donated vehicles will be used by high school students for training. Some of the cars might be repaired for sale by the Student Auto Group enterprise.

Donations are tax deductible and a letter of donation will be issued for tax purposes. But FACTS asks that donated autos be operational because the program’s towing capability is limited. For more information, call 301/749-4267.
