    Just got a new key cut for my truck and had a look through my stuff for a cool key fob to put it on. This was the best I could find for now:


    What are the rest of you guys using for your rod keys????

    The one is obviously an old Pontiac emblem. But the second one is an old Phillips 66 flashlight, and it still has the old battery. It says “Caravan Oil Co. Phillips 66 prod. E. Walter.” Pretty cool. I couldn’t decide which one to use, so I put copies of keys on both.

    OK, this is boring without a picture, but I found a medium sized bolt in the pan of my V-12, that looks like it got caught in the crank a few times (mangled), but at the same time the constant movement and oil polished it up beautifully.

    I drilled a hole in it and have it on my key chain now.

    ZZ Top key chain my dad made. when I was a kid.
  19. No cool fobs but I use a u joint clip for my key ring. I havent lost a key off of it in twenty years even though it seems like you could. I also carry a p38 army can opener. I've pried more things off with it than open cans. You never know when you need a small prybar or screwdriver. If you buy one make sure it says Shelby corp on it. The cheap coleman camping ones are no good.

    My great uncle got this when he bought a 1963 Thunderbird. He also gave me one that has never been used.

    no pic but it's a 4" polished con rod from some old small engine that had a needle bearing pressed in to accept the wrist pin.

    I scored this one at an Estate Sale. I was talking to the guy who was running it while going through a box of $1 dollar items and I pull this out. He immediatly says it is not supposed to be in there so I said no problem, what do you want for it? He asked what kind of car I had and I told him a 56 Chevy so he said take it for the $1. PERFECT for my keys for the 56 Wagon.....

    My DD key FOB is a Snap On 1/4" Drive Swivel taken apart and rings through the holes for the u-joint that connected them then you snap the male into the female side. I keep the ignition key on one half and everything else on another, great for those cold days when you want to warm the car up.

    Coolest one I ever had was a brass 1927 Mercer Co. Illinois dog license tag but it evidently worked itself off one night and I lost it. I found 3 of them buried in the dirt behind an implement dealership when I was a kid, the other 2 are 1926 and 1929 and I still have them. They won't be going on any key rings though.
