Besides car collecting I collect firearms also. My main focus is WWII arms from the allies and axis powers. I have also collected the extra stuff that goes along with this such as bayonets, web gear, holsters, etc. It gives me something to do during the winter months.

 

 

I just have to say something about the 2012 armagedon, wouldn't it be funny if the Mayans were doing the calender and just got to that point and said, "That's far enough" "if somebody in the future wants to extend the calender let them do it." Just to be on the safe side I'm not buying any X-mas presents untill the 23rd of December that year! :hysterical:

My other main hobby is arcade and pinball machines. I tend to get more fun fixing them up than playing them, so I tend to sell them and get another project. I'm just about full of 'keepers' now though, so unless we add on to the house or buy a bigger one I'm pretty much done.

I'm afraid not. I haven't seen many PONG games locally, but I can let you know if I come across one.

not real big into any one thing. If something strikes me may buy it. I do have some pocket watches, some diecast car, some pocket knives, a few guns, and a few different wrist watches. Nothing high dollar though.

My wife and I always talk about this. EVERY time I meet an avid car guy, it seems that he is interested , for whatever reason, in watches.

 

At just south of 50 y.o. I have about ten or twelve watches. My favorite being a Rolex my wife got me for my 40th. I will never forget that day! I have a varying mix of other brands...lots of styles....many for different reasons. As well, it seems that most guys my age are interested in the old Scwhinn Sting Rays, and the Krate series Sting Rays. I personally just sold my bicycle store that I started from scratch in 1999. In it, we had a collection of about 20 Schwinn StingRays and Krates, hanging all around the rafters! Every time I met a new customer that came into the shop even partially interested in one of them, he ALWAYS seemed to be a car guy too!! As for you 60 somethings....I know that you guys also dig the old Balloon tire Schwinns, (The Phantoms), and the old Columbias.

 

While Im on this subject, it seems that the guys in this hobby are not too computer savvy? Am I right? What is it with all of us? My wife is constantly asking me all of this! Seems we are all cut from the same cloth. Could it be that old pair of OP shorts from 1975?? :hysterical:

 

Im certain that I am leaving out a thing or two of interest to US car freaks. Please feel free to chime in if you have similar feelings or experiences. One last piece of comedic interest from my wife.....she calls my, (our) hobby...Car Porn! :hysterical:

What a funny topic. Mention guns and the humorous (and not so humorous) comments come out quickly. We are "a livin' in perilous times". As an amateur historian, I collect U.S Civil War and "cowboy" type antique guns. Shooting them is a lot of fun, kind of like driving an old car. Next comes the collecting of 60's model car kits and Dealer promotional car models. I custom build the old 50's and 60's NASCAR cars. NO diecast, made in China junk. The old Dealer promotional car models are my favorite. For you older folks, remember when you went to the new car grand opening at your local dealer? The dealer would give the kids a 1/25 scale model of the car in hope of selling the real one. I still have my first one, which is a 1961 Chevy Impala convertible, not bad since my dad always bought Mercurys!! No special watches of much value, just an old presentation watch that was given to a retiring Ford Exec, the new Shelby watch offered by SAI, and the normal Seiko stuff. Very enjoyable topic.

It's funny you bring Y2K up, I had to work that night down at time square just about every cop plus myself were loaded to the gill with bullets and 2 back up guns. People kept coming up to us asking if we heard anything or what do we do if it happens. We would tell don't worry if it happens we'll be right here to help. :rip::hide: When the ball drop most of us stood inside buildings front lobby with guns drawn. You know if it did happen a second would go by and the fine citizens will go crazy and start looting and killing each other. Just like in L.A with the rodney king roits :goodnight:

People are stocking up on ammo went to the sport shop by me and his ammo was down meer box's.
