One of the first automotive tools I ever bought to use on my first vehicle, a 1966 Chevy Caprice, with a 396, thing was as big as a barge! And had a back seat to match, almost like a mobile bedroom, lol. Ahhh...such memories come flooding back when I remember that car!

Dad bought a 75 Impala new when we came back to the states.
By the time I was old enough to drive he had bought a truck, so mom and I used the car.
I was in jrotc in school, after one event there were 15 of us in it going to pizza hut.
Damn good times!! It had a front bench seat, so it was a rolling 2 bedroom apt.!!!

Great stuff. Brings back the memories...
That's what these items and this thread are for! I enjoy the differences and similarities in each collection also.

We bought some restaurant equipment from a cafe and the husband of the lady gave me all these bottles. He was on a job site in Baltimore and dug them all himself. The site was apparently an old dump from the Great Fire of Baltimore in 1904. He had many more bottles. I used to dig bottles with my late uncle, when I was a kid. So this is cool to me.

Got this yesterday, along with several pieces of antique furniture and 5 vehicle loads of genealogy for an old man I know. He sold one of his houses and told me to get the genealogy and anything else I wanted out of it.

It hung on the porch of the old store his grand parents had.

This brand will be familiar to some. Nice little piece, "made in USA"

I like thermometers.
I picked this one up from an old decommissioned electric power plant.
It is pretty heavy.

Bumper stickers are acceptable as well! Figured this would be a good place. They're on a bumper I just picked up. One of those ugly dealer installed bumpers lol.

I put this in "check it out" but I'll post it here too. Found it in one of my late father's tool cabinets; don't think he ever used it.

This is an old Hygrometer to measure humidity
I have a large box of Mercury items like this at my work we have rounded up for disposal. Even have 2 large unopened bottles of laboratory grade mercury.
