Fun Had at Bruce’s Anuual Spook Out
by Thad Kirk
Bruce’s Parts Bin opened up shop and
held it’s annual “Spook Out” in support
of the Delaware Valley Chapter of FLU.
It’s a chance for people to get together and
enjoy each other’s company and their
cars. Bruce ordered up some excellent
weather! Sunny mid 70’s with beautiful
fall foliage colors. Bruce, and staff (wife
and daughter), had a nice setup of food at
the ‘Bin’ for those who were hungry.
Lots of great people and cars. Cars
from NJ, DE, NY, MD, PA, etc. We
had a great turn out! If you’ve never
visited Bruce’s Bin, then you’re missing a
treasure. Bruce has parts scattered all over
the place that even he doesn’t know
about. Saturday was sort of like a self
serve Fiat parts store. Half the fun is
finding the stuff Bruce doesn’t even know
he has! Look for his annual open house in
the spring held about April 1. This event
is referred to as ‘Fools Out’.
