Other than ford trucks, what do you collect?

I have had many collections, Still have my beer can collection from the 70's. In the 80's I started collecting matchbooks. The 90's I collected vintage ford truck brochures and still do. Now? anything that looks cool, license plates, pedal cars, vintage oil cans and signs.

Well, can't say I collect "groups" of things, but trying to cut back on multiple "hobbies".

My collection ???

My collection of a few old Ford trucks pales by comparrison to my collection of Junk. My philosophy is if it's free, bring it home. Even if it costs money to get rid of it later.

Although I don't classify myself as a true colector, I seem to have amassed a lot of like groupings of stuff. I have about 1,000 old vinyl LP's that gathered over the years as I bought every single one of them. I read about fifty books a year and I seem to have saved every one of those with exception of those I have loaned out and never did get back. I've always been an electronics and ham radio guy and I seem to have saved almost all that stuff I have collected over fifty years. I could open a museum with all that stuff. There would be seperate wings for computers, video, and audio equipment. I still have my first computer, an old TRS-80 Model three with souped up memory and big drives. I think it still works. I am a nut for tools and equipment limited only by what I can move and accomodate. Oh, I almost forgot my collection of heavy transformers. I never seem to be able to pass one up when it's available.

I often joke with my only son about what he is going to have to go through when he ends up with all my stuff. He is cursed with the same gene that predisposed me as well as our ancestors to the affliction of extreme acquisition. he lives 600 miles away but I told him to cheer up because he gets a big truck, a van and several nice trailers to haul it away in and if he is really lucky, maybe some money to buy the fuel to move it all with.

Hey, if you can't invest in quality, then go for the next best thing, quantity and weight. One sure way to be remembered is to leave a mess that others will have to spend a lot of time and expense on cleaning up...

Later Folks...

Dave,

Thats why Ive been selling my excess stock of 53-56 truck parts. If something happens to me today I dont want to burden my wife with all the "junk" I have stashed away.

A friend passed away a couple months ago and he drove truck. He has a large rental garage he stored his truck in. Its FULL of anything you can think of. He family now has the issue of trying to clean it out....ugh. He dad is just as bad, so you can image HIS garage!

It all boils down to "gee, I might need this someday". Ya, right.

Kevin,
If it was up to my wife she would call my son. If they didn't want it I'm sure they would know how to get rid of it. I imagine there would be a lot of stuff sold at a sale and/or on ebay. Of course a few of my friends would be sure to go through the stuff first. Knowing my son as I do, I doubt there would be much left and I pointed out he has the same affliction I do. Plus there is just something about having your dad's tools. I have some of my dad's stuff that I have already made my son promise to keep and not sell off. When I bought my new welding machines recently I gave him my dad's welder with that promise to me.

BTW, what kind of body parts do you have to get rid of???


Later man...

I have magizines some oil cans some signs my uncle had it (R.I.P.) it is an old Autolite sign with I believe a GT40 on it along with a sticker for Tiger. A Mustang pedel car Starkey & Hutch Gran Torino toy (car i wash it was real) so some stuff is a treasure some not so much I MIGHT NEED IT ONE DAY!!!!! But when you get rid of it you'll need it.Also wife likes to go to auctions and thats the way to get rid of stuff when our numbers up.Some times it blows my mind what stuff sells for tools seem to sell for more then i'd think.I was at one auction and A barn find 40 Ford business coupe sold for over $5000.00 i was looking at the crowd and thought that is mine for cheap because no one even looked at it or didn't look like a car guy.I didn't get it.

Vintage Coca Cola signs, bottles, anything related really from the 20s-60s.

I have to agree with freightrian we moved recently and could not believe all the stuff I had, I am in the process of cleaning house, don't want to move it again, and as I see it I had not used in a number of years and probably never will.

Dave---I almost forgot. I have been collecting machine tools(toolroom) tools for many years,and sold off most of it,till a few years ago. Dad and I went to a sale in Miami and bought out a tool-room and have all the machinery in my shop in Florida.
Dad still uses the equipment and just made me a pulley a few weeks ago. It keeps him busy and he mows the ranch anyway and nice to have him watch over the place.
He always calls it my junk.....but it is his too. Dad is a great guy. Taught me how to run every machine tool imaginable and at 20 ran it all.
I have about 500 drill bits --all over 1'' in size....haha---I will be ebaying them soon.
Bill
