Although the deals were private and uncounted, roughly 3,000 shoppers got together with 350 sellers at the grand opening Nov. 9 and 10 of Arizona's new swap meet for used cars, boats, and recreational vehicles.
AutoSwap USA plans to hold regular weekend meets in the parking lot of a former trotting-horse track at Exit 124 off Interstate 10, about five miles west of Litchfield Park.
Don Head, AutoSwap's chief executive officer, projects four new sites in Western states in 1992, including one in east Phoenix, and a total of 10 in two years. "We think we have a whole new way for middle-class Americans to dispose of their cars," Mr. Head said.
AutoSwap recently formed by merging with the shell of the former Intermark Inc., a casino gaming-equipment dealer.
