Sometimes you just HAVE to buy it!

Low on dough but the opportunity doesn't come around twice. I have NEVER regretted anything I bought, only the things I didn't.

The Next Stop.....

In all the years of going to estate sales I have come across some weird shit. This was tucked into some paper stuff my wife picked up years back. What does it mean? Who really knows? I have my suspicions.....

Ghost Signs

"Ghost Signs" is a term that has been coined in recent times to describe those old worn, peeling advertising signs painted on the side of buildings and such. This is a great one that I pass by from time to time and finally got a shot of.

The funny thing about this sign is that the above sign was painted right over the one below.

I Miss the 80's

I was going through some stuff while moving our shop and found this old receipt. Can you imagine paying $125.00 for a Vespa P200 now-a-days? I totally remember the day and the bikes. One was a white P125 with a Black Flag sticker on it and the other was a crashed maroon P200 that I got running a took out for a ride that night. I got pulled over in Palos Verdes and almost lost the bike. That cop hated my guts! Whats the big deal with running a plate from another bike? Sheesh!

Swap Meet Score

So I needed a new tool box for the house and happened upon this beauty yesterday. A bargin at $20.00 I would say. Some people would say that it is rusty and bent and not worth fixing up. I disagree!

Here is a shot of what some WD-40 and a Scotch Brite pad will do. I love the little man stamped into the drawer pulls. I would much rather look at him than a Made in China label!

This shot is for Randy.
