    I am on a road trip summer vacation to Minnesota and Wisconsin as well as the Iola swap meet. Along the way, I was fortunate enough to be invited to stay overnight at the home of Bob and Maggie K. My favortie brother in law is along for the ride and we are having a blast.

    I was kind of disappointed that the Canadian Pontiac valvecover that Bob extorted from me isn"t on his wall of fame. However I did see a 54 Stude wheel disk that I could use as a spare & a nice 60 Merc. grille that would look great in my 59 El Camino. Bob contact me for shipping instructions. P.S. very nice collection.
     

  5. Such a cool guy, I feel lucky to have met him. Sweet place Bob! I am really enjoying the povertyflats "visit" threads.

    Oh yes it is Robert, look at picture number 12, top row second one from the left. It's a side angle shot so it don't show up too good.

    Paul it was a treat having you and L spend the night, (Maggie say's you guys know how to make beds). You are welcome anytime.

  26. Bob k cool guy cool house cool garage go figure!
     
  27. Thanks for the tour Paul! What a great trip you got to take this time....Bob's and Mark's in the same trip. Great collections and beautiful ways of displaying them both. Who knew I "needed" a ferris wheel bucket until I saw Bob's. I see a new trend in the reception area furniture for the office in the future. ;)
     
  28. Thanks for taking us along on all your stops. I met Bob in Bowling Green last month. Didn't get to hang out with him though......next time!:)

    I've known Bob for years. Since I moved from Wisconsin, I even see him more. Usually cruising around Indy, Columbus, etc. We have "run over" each other over many times.

    Go big bob!

  30. Thanks for another great "guided" tour Paul.
    Bob-- your place rocks.

    You just never know where the next telephone booth might turn
    up.:D

    (There's so much good stuff on the HAMB!!!)
