Not quite a city or town but a place with a post office and as Alpine was taken they came up with Twin Peaks. The odd thing being that there is only one peak. Anyway my speciality is toys of the 1960s although I collect much more. I have a particular weakness for taxidermy which includes everything from insects to bear skin rugs although I don't have a bear skin rug yet. fortapacheftr@charter.net (Read more)

  1. Those are great fun. I have a black version with extra lenses around here someplace.
  2. The swastika is not the nazi swastika. It was used by the Hindu and some American Indians before the Nazis used it. Also the scouts used it and is probably a scouting item pre WWII.
  3. Looks like it was picked up locally when your great uncle was in Burma.
  4. I like that one. Not common to see one that old in red and with rivets.
  5. Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. He is a bit under 5" from base to fingertips.
  6. Thank you very much iggy. I am watching a video on cleaning these. It probably won't work.
  7. Thank you very much racer4four. I am quite proud. Thank you very much elanski. I haven't found much information o it other than it was based on a Norman Rockwell painting. But it is allowed for th...
  8. As seen on CW Facebook!
  9. I don't know, I think it sounds like fun.
  10. Love the look of those old extinguishers.
  11. Love that truck. Also that is a great quote about drag racing.
  12. Thank you very much dav2no1. I would be happy to see them.
  13. Thank you very much racer4four.
  14. It is a kukri and it is what they call a chopper.
  15. dav2no1 just one more. Perhaps just a tootsietoy.
  16. Also going with early 1950s. I know a place that sells old car doors for $129 each. These are a bit more ornate.
  17. Congratulations! Going to a big (1,000 cars) in 2 weeks. Just to look though.
  18. Thank you very much Newfld. Perhaps I posted it a bit early.
  19. The electric motors were able to replace the treadles without much trouble. I think usually they used the same model but made a new one for the motorized portables.
  20. It is a beautiful machine and nice cabinet too.
  21. Thank you very much dav2no1. This is more like snadstone. There is no quartz.
  22. Sadly it did seem they had a surprise coming. They should have asked Churchill.
  23. It is a sea fan.
  24. Thank you very much Vinyl.
  25. Our local fire here is the El Dorado fire aka the Gender Reveal party fire. Plenty of smoke and sepia tone sunlight.
  26. Will do bb2. And thank you very much elanski.
  27. Thank you very much Newfld.
  28. Saw this on Facebook today. Same one I think.
  29. They are all classics but this one is a classic.
  30. It's a model 28 made in 1910.
  31. The rosy cheek artwork is rather odd considering the situation.
  32. Mono looks like a warning. I remember buying a bootleg zep album in mono and being warned by the sales clerk it was mono. That wasn't the album's biggest problem though.
  33. Thank you very much AO. Have been on the lookout for something like this. Thank you very much Newfld. I have wagon wheel too. Thank you very much bb2. I watch his garage shows mostly for the vin...
  34. Would go well with my Studebaker wheel.
  35. I think they added the bubble top post Kennedy. Now they are heavily armored.
  36. The case in #2 is filled with vintage stuff. I still need to post my Allen doll.
  37. Up to #3!
  38. Thank you very much Watchsearcher. I don't like the slasher movies. I like the old school ones like Dracula.
  39. That is one of my theme songs along with You're No Good.
  40. I think I finally got everything on the GI joe paperwork.
  41. As Charles Phoenix would say I know!
  42. All very fine signs. I like the Teem one the best. But then self standing signs don't take up wall space.
  43. A double sided hit.
  44. Very cool. Keep those rustlers away.
  45. As seen on CW Facebook!
  46. Thank you very much Newfld. I have been meaning to take the Amtrak coast route. Thank you very much Ted. I shall take your word for it. Thank you very much elanski. I think it has a restroom.
  47. Nice collection of Scout books.
  48. Very cool story of a cool album.
  49. Model 91K 1924.
  50. White bird must fly!
