I love these 60's tin litho bird pins recently found online. I've posted some bugs too.
Sorry for this shameless excuse to share my purchase last week: Friday I bought a Gran Torino!
Why? --- the clunker car on my way home in various shades of bondo: red, grey, black. Wasn't there a cash for clunkers govt. drive a few years ago? Well, anyway I was stuck behind the old 70's car and the driver was tattooed - hunched over talking on his phone (because that's a ticket) in the carpool lane for a little while....hmm -was there a kid in the back? (another ticket?) and then off fwy and in front of me thru LBC on my way home after my crappy work day....and I thot "way to go Gran Torino" and somehow that encouraged me to buy this friend for Whitey Bulger an hr later (joke, crosstown is only about 45 min for 7 miles) when I finally got home. Whitey Bulger immediately showed his gangster side and beat (little) Gran Torino up. But just a few days later? happy and chewing on the cardboard badge mount display. Which, I quickly removed.
