The year was 1965 at O'CONNOR Ford and Mercury and if you purchased a new auto the keys would be in one of these. This set belongs to the 1965 Mustang that I still own >>>>.

I've got the spare key to my grandfather's '49 chevy pickup thats in a leather sheath like the ones Tommy posted. The truck was sold after he died and my grandmother gave me the key along with the his 30-30 deer rifle. Great reminders of the man who I admired most while growing up.

The keys to the Ford are on this ring, vintage Chevrolet nail/knife thingy... I attach it to the daily driver/house keys with a carbiner... I threw the vintage lighters in there because I could...

That's funny..my 5yr old nephews go to toy (despite 1000s of other toys) are 'his' set of keys complete with Chuck Taylor (his super hero who lives at Disneyworld ) key chain. He has driven more miles with those keys then most people will ever see in a lifetime!

I have one of those little license plates on my '53 Chevy keys along with an old Chevy logo key chain. On the Model A keys are the church key I found in the roadster (I figure it is one of his old girlfriends house keys!) and a roadster key chain from Brookville.

I recently bought a collection of old key chains from around the world at an auction that a lady collected for 50 years. I'll post up a pic in the next couple days.

I have one just like that for my Bonneville, it has sort of a generic Pontiac-looking car on it. The trouble with it is it's so small I can lose it in the bottom of my pocket sometimes.

Found these 60's Rat Fink Bubblegum machine key chains at an estate sale last weekend. I was planning on putting them in the classifieds so they will be there shortly. I think I may have a couple disabled veterans miniature Indiana license plate key chains like the ones in the earlier posts also.

I used to live right down the street from the Knights Inn that the key chain in the first photos came from.

I put one of these on my Riv key chain. They are pre 1948. I think that's when Plomb became Proto.
