    I am always on the look out for cool stuff sometimes the stories behind them make them even better. I once found a chrome big 97 stromberg at a tractor swapmeet. Found some very cool old Rat Fink stuff at a church bizzare.Picked up a real amazing ashtray at a local junk shop with California track roadsters sliding around it like a banked turn it reads worlds fastest sport . What are some of your car parts or cool stuff find stories found in odd places .

    Don't know how cool it was, but it scared the Hell out of me. When I bought my first wrecking yard from an old hoarder, I found a child's wooden coffin out in the middle of the yard. I found out later that it was a demonstration model, and that the local mortuary had probably hauled it to the dump. Later I found the Landau Irons off the sides of one of their old hearses. Every day was an adventure, while I cleaned that place up. You never knew what you would find in the trunks of cars, or stashed in a shed.

    Went to a basement sale, got Washington State Motor Vehicle Operators Manual, 1937. Cost a whole dollar. On the back cover it shows the turn signals, arm out for left, up for right, down for stop.

    Stepped on this while walking though a field. At the time I was having a real hard time finding one in the local junk yards.
