I am getting back into slot cars and model building now it is getting cold again down here...
Got a couple of 1/24 scale Carrera Hotrods, 24hour racers, 1/32 scale hotrod, nascars etc.
It is a way to have fun inside a warm house...

Last 5 years, I've been collecting V8 emblems off of old 30s. 40's and 50's cars. They're all different and unique....I see them as pieces of art.

Everytime I'm in a bar and they put my drink on a bar coaster, I'll take it home with me and date it. It's just a reminder of all of the cool places I've been all over the country.

This thread would be a lot cooler if you guys showed pictures of all that cool stuff you collect. No pics equals............

Here is the collection of butterflies I keep in the basement in order to maintain a Silence of Lambs feel.

A.S.BN, Noticed you collect Smokey T. Bear stuff, Ive got a Smokey cigarette snuffer on my vans dash, from the Grand Canyon. Got it for free from a friends dad when they were scrapping their camper, along with a manual trip meter. Went online, cant believe how much those snuffers go for, wow.

Anyway, heres a few vintage trailers I have and or have had. Its a seperate hobby but linked to the cars bause its a accsessory as well, along with being usefull. I buy and sell them to fund things as well.

Current flipper that has stuck around to long. lol A late '60s Sears allstate two wheel trailer



Another flipper trailer that moved real fast. Same type of trailer but a clam shell top.





'67 Apache pop up keeper.





Sears Allstate single wheel. This style trailer got me wanting a vintage trailer, I missed the first one I saw. Found this one one about 14 years later. Its since sold because I found the same style in better shape.





Heres the one Im keeping, pics of the day it came home.





My Heilite single wheel tent trailer minutes after unloading it from the truck. Got it for free! Only had to drive to Milwaukee to get it.







Ive had 3 Sears allstate wood box single wheel trailers as well (no pics), and another sears two wheel clam shell. I get a bit into trailers. Lol.

Check out singlewheel.com for some really cool trailers. Thats it for right now
