Vintage Space { back to the future }

Discussion in 'The Antiquated' started by Ron Funkhouser, May 2, 2018.

  1. I loved the 1950's and 60's! One of the coolest things growing up back then, was the cars, Hot Rods, and yes { Outer Space }.:) Back then, when I thought of living in the year 2000. I thought that I may be living on Mars, and driving a flying car.:rolleyes: lol My parents took us to the 1964-65 worlds fair. Back then we thought that anything was possible! So let's see your STUFF, posters, Toys , Model cars, Robots, and space toys! THANKS RON..... 602.jpg 2061.jpg 1368.jpg 1340.jpg 20161007_231448.jpg

    Love the vintage sci-fi stuff. I'm always looking for the old mid century memorabilia, but it's rare in my part of the country

    When I saw the headline of this post I thought maybe you were talking about the Vintage Space youtube channel. I'm a bit of a space history nerd, so it's right up my alley. The girl that hosts it is pretty easy on the eyes, too...

  7. Remember these guys? ROBBIE the robot, was from the 1956 Forbidden planet movie. And the lost in space robot was from the 1960s TV show. I loved them both as a kid, especially the (bubble headed boobie) as the good Dr. Smith would call the lost in space robot. Lol :) 20180512_151309.jpg

    This isn’t exactly vintage, but it’s from a vintage show. My mother is a huge Doctor Who fan, so my sister and I built this for her a couple months ago.

    Made this light. First as a table light, then a wall hanger. Turns on with an ignition switch. 2013-02-06_23-58-29_733 (2).jpg 20140525_155508 (2).jpg 20140525_155528 (2).jpg

  20. Just a Bump to see some more vintage space toys, books, movies, art, etc. 20161229_233137.jpg 20160429_050202.jpg Stuff like steam punk, yard art, models, toys etc. I noticed a Galileo model in back ground on another thread. It looked so cool. So what ya got? Thanks Ron............

  21. You have some set of eyes, that is Tim Chapman's shop. Former member of the Road Agents (Rockabilly Rumble East Hartford Conn).
    He is the man I bought my sedan from.

    The Galileo model was a Boy Scout project he and his son built. Is having a father who is a talented bodyman/Hot Rod builder with a body shop an unfair advantage?

    I think I have some photos of it from a different angle, but the sedan is in the way.
