The first picture is of a metal peddle jet that has been in the family since maybe early 1950s. I refurbished it. I know...I shouldn't have. But I painted it like a Blue Angel. This was all done in 1984. Now, that is my grandson on it! The third generation boy that has ridden it in our family.
The other picture is of a plastic shuttle I bought for my son (just 28 years old now) but I noticed recently, it has Challenger decals. Made it extremely special to me!
