Phil Rite Gas Can

I picked up this killer old gas can from my ol' buddy Black Ron. He is moving out of his shop and wants to thin the collection way down. I was lucky enough to pick up a few things from him. Some to sell and some to keep. This one is a definate keeper. Why don't they make stuff like this anymore?

Check out this decal!


Thanks again Ron! I only wish that I had been there sooner!

On a recent outing to Lakewood I discovered that my, "when in Lakewood", lunch spot is moving to a new location right across the same parking lot. This is Wienerschnitzel as it should be.

This is the new location. This is NOT how it should be. What a shame.

I brought an old friend back to life this week. I had to sort out a few problems that had forced me to park it and a few problems that arose from it sitting for the last 4 or so years. Its all good now and nothing but fun!
I traded a guy a coffee pot for it in the early 90's and found the motor in pieces in the dumpster behind my house.

Off The Grid

I've been in hiding for awhile. Not for any other reason other than sometimes life just gets in the way. I have seen and done a lot, bought and sold a lot, worried, cried, laughed and lay sleepless all night these past months. Major change is upon me and I don't like change but in the end it has worked out wonderfully. I still have a lot of things to do but my head is right and hopefully I will find the time to keep this blog updated. For now enjoy a few crappy cell phone pictures I've taken recently.

I wanted this electric shopper so bad but somebody had deeper pockets than me.

I have been after this plaque for a long time and was happy when a friend was finally ready to sell.
