    Found these today on a nature walk. Was wondering if these are from a vintage car?................................

      The largest 'grate appearing' thing is no doubt a (reasonably contemporary) patio table now missing its legs. I have a similar set, though its big table is larger with a glass top, the chairs (and matching smaller 'cocktail table'?) are made exactly how it is.

      The thing appearing on it in pic 1 *might* be an old car (or bicycle) fender, just a guess. No clue whatever about pics #3 & 4 are...? :-)

      AnythingObscure good detective work. :)

      Oops...the 'maybe fender' thing is in pic #2. The ring/band thing on the tabletop (?) in pic#1, with a fresh glance, might have been an old "barrel stave" since it now looks like it might be ever so slightly 'tapered' in its overall shape, and its size compared to the table seems nearly right??

      Still no guess what pics #3 & 4 might be...are they actually two shots of the same item??

      And aww CRAP again....barrel "staves" are of course the wooden parts of one, ultimately all held together by whatever the steel/iron straps around them are really called... *that's* the part of a barrel I was thinking of... <duhhh><headdesk>

      Yougottahavestuff thank you for the info. Do you think these are from 1940 or 1950?
