    I collect teenagers.... not that I want to, but they just seem to accumulate here... got my two boys.... one of my oldest son's friend lived with us for about 8 months when his mom threw him out.... another one of his friends would stay here for weeks at a time while his mom and he were fighting... then my niece moved in for a couple years,.. now my oldest boy's fiance stays here 4 or 5 times a week.... and I guess I have a grand daughter that's suppose to be showing up the first of July.... I just can't seem to get away from them...

    Recently, I've started fooling around with dual and tripower carb setups and so I have been collecting scrap stainless steel small diameter bar flat and tube to make my levers & brackets etc.

    I am not a fan of cable linkages when it comes to flathead engines.

    Wyandotte toy cars and trucks. they went out of business in 1956, these are pre-war except for the lithographed yellow and red tractor trailer. I probably have about 100 cars trucks and airplanes.

    I collect pretty much anything that has to do with Mopar, but mostly Hotwheels cause they are cheap easy to find and look overwhelming in huge numbers.:D

    Adjusted for inflation, 39.40 is about $515.00 in today'soney, so it seems like they were around the same price then as now. :mad:

     
  20. Small collection of breweriana of Kansas City-based brewers. Royal Beer put out a series of mugs with "toasts" printed on them. I have a few that are pre-Prohibition and a flock of post-Prohibition ones.
    [​IMG]

    Another KC-based brewery was run by the Muehlebach family (same as the world-famous Muehlebach Hotel) and I have a few serving trays (if anyone knows of a white version of the Muehlebach serving tray, I'm buying), a tip tray, a lighted clock/sign, and a thermometer (not shown). Muehlebach lasted until the '50s when they were bought by Falstaff and then closed in the '60s. The Pabst tray in the background was the one that started this obsession about seven years ago.
