Post some pics of your prized automotive related items! This is one of my favorites, my mom got it at an auction years and years ago. This particular one is faded, the bottom of the circle is supposed to be red as well as some red in the sunburst around the battery. Still cool though. As a bonus, the temperature reading is still accurate, too. I imagine this dates back to the 50's or 60's. I also have a table zippo lighter (literally a huge zippo that sits on a table) that my grandpa got years ago for being a Pontiac mechanic for 25 years.

Two of the oldest: 1968 Ford Falcon brochure from Johnny Bolton Ford in Maitland, FL (now Don Reid Ford). 1968 Toyota Corolla brochure from the Winter Park Mall 1968 import auto show, Winter Park, FL.

If I was at my parents house I'd have a ton of stuff to post. I've got a 1960s Jeep fan belt in the original cardboard sleeve, many Ford truck brochures, including a "marketing manual" for the 1983 Ranger in perfect condition and a binder packed with option packages and pictures for all 1984 Ford trucks, and various parts including a 1980s Ranger XLT fender badge still in the plastic packaging. I do have some pictures and scans from brochures to post... This one is from the 1984 Ford truck binder I mentioned above... Basically the rest of the binder is 100s of pages like that, covering everything from Rangers to Econolines. And these pics are of one of many Ranger brochures I have...

^ OMGs, a buzzer when the key is in! And they brag about the combo "Brake" warning light that confuses people when their e-brake is off and their fluid is all gone. My dad bought a 1980 Fairmont with a "Ford presents: Sounds of the 80s" demo cassette tape that he actually kept in the car for years!

Ford had some very obnoxious door buzzers in the 1980s! I don't think I'll ever forget that sound.

I know this is somewhat old, but I finally updated pics of my garage schwag this weekend. As a youth, I used to collect old hupcaps, etc.
