Countryford83 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Other hobbies/collections.

Being on a Ford Truck forum, we are all somewhat intrested in vehicles/trucks. My question is what are some of your other hobbies?
I'll start. I collect and restore antique radios and television sets. I have over 200 radios and over 50 TV sets.
In addition to that, I also have over 1200 record albums. That is just the 33 1/3 LPs. I have about 500 45's and a few of the 78's. I also have 3 jukeboxes. 2 of them are 1956 AMis and each hold 100 45's. The third one is a Seeburg from the 60's. It was a home unit and holds 50 LPs.

Here is me next to my 1956 Philco.



Here is my 1959 Magnavox. Has the radio on one side and the turntable on the other side.



Here are some of my radios and TV sets in my display room.



This is one of the 1956 AMi jukebox. The other one is identical with the exception of it is black instead of the green.



Feel free to post pictures. Would like to see other's hobbies/collections.

Cool Collection of old radios and tvs

I used to collect the old GI Joes and Die Cast trucks, but have sold off most of them..

Also have baseball and non baseball cards that are not worth much, but still fun to look at..

No pictures of any of them...
