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. (Read more)

  21. Looks like your bedroom is tastefully decorated with Roger Dean artwork. Quite the impressive set of walls.
  22. Thank you very much WesternPA-Collector. I think I would rather have something I could drive. But a car like this needs to be driven.
  23. Probably close to 100 years old.
  24. Thank you very much Thomas. I think this may be more Al Capone's style. He liked big heavy cars.
  25. I think it is a toaster.
  26. Thank you very much Phil. Yrs I do get the comments about museums. A museum should hire me. Thank you very much Newfld. Glad you like it.

  32. I was a big time audiophile (but not a purist). I subscribed to Stereo Review knew what THD an 20-20kz meant and all that. The old equipment had all kinds of fun knobs and switches with VU and other m...
  33. Detroit Rock City is a great movie. A bit of a nonquitter but that it is the name of the opening tract. I do believe they had a major impact on the modern rock concert with the light shows and all that.

  39. Great post. Feel free to post more of these. I have many complete kits posted here.
  40. I will be all over that tomorrow. I could do a few posts on this. Nice collection.

  43. Many of my posts get changed to advertising.
  44. Thank you everyone.
  45. Sorry no appraisals this is a site for collecting not selling. Restoring it can actually lower the value. 1915-1920 btw.
  46. Very nice.
  47. It doesn't seem to be threaded inside and there is no groove for a wire. Not sure how it would work as an insulator.
