The Pate Car Corral

Pate Car Corral Details

Whether selling, buying or trading a vehicle, the Pate Car Corral may result in an offer you can't refuse.

In the Pate Swap Meet, our Car Corral is an integral part of our event. As the largest automotive-related swap meet in the Southwest and the second largest in the United States, we naturally attract car people and their cars to the event. The Car Corral provides a space for operating and driveable vehicles can be gathered and offered for sale.

The Pate Car Corral offers a unique showcase for sellers and buyers of unique vehicles of all types, makes, models and vintages; from finished show cars to entry-level project cars and everything in between. The Car Corral offers cars and trucks, vintage and modern, domestic and imports, customized cars and trucks, muscle cars, hot rods, rat rods and even "old heaps." Some will be finished and fully restored and others suitable for your next rebuilding project.

There will be vehicles for every budget, including many bargains offered by motivated sellers looking for an immediate sale. Potential buyers will negotiate directly with current owners. Negotiate your best price or, perhaps, even a trade. Strike a deal, settle your transaction and drive your vehicle home.

As an added benefit, Car Corral visitors can connect with other car enthusiasts who share similar passions for shared interest in vehicle types, makes and models. Talk with the owner of the vehicles being shown and network with individuals and car clubs.

There are no commissions or sales fees charged by the Pate Car Corral on a sale. Other than the vehicle owner purchasing the Car Corral ticket (a flat low-cost fee good for one vehicle for the run of the event), all sales are private transactions with all of the funds settled by the involved parties.

The Pate Car Corral is an outdoor event staged in the shadow of the Texas Motor Speedway between Lone Star Circle and the Speedway itself.

Bring your vehicle to sell. Come to buy, trade or just have a look. It is fun for both families and automobile enthusiasts.
