    Sally and I popped over to Essex and IKEA yesterday, making a detour to meet up with @PaulY and Lulu at J28 of the M25 to collect @CraigRK ‘s new Chevy Tailgate that Paul had collected in Luton last week, so next stop Leatherhead.

    Sally was eager with the camera and got it, including Lulu first.



    A really neat tailgate




    I guess it’s Bound to happen some times.

    Bootfair mainly sucked for me today

    Always interesting sellers though, this guy is a regular with cameo stuff.

    I like NATO or Cammo green.



    But @CraigRK was the winner with this large set of Augers for £6.00







    The total haul.

    Included:

    Bicycle side stand for Craig’s daughter £1.00
    Four coffee mugs unused, for their caravan site 50p each
    Nodding head dog for someone in the USA 50p
    Pink scarf, unused 50p
    Large phone booth mug, unused 20p
    Glass skull bottle 50p
    Some plasterboard jointing tape for Sally’s bedroom job 20p
    3 Union Jack lapel pins 50p
    Star Wars shooter glasses, unused 50p
    Metal Millennium Falcon and bunch of figurines £1.00
    Dog grass anchor for Sally’s dog £1.00
    Load of fresh fruit for £2.50

    That’s the lot.

    Total spend, under £15.00

    Cheap entertainment

    IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM MATE.

    Fat fingers or spell checker.

    Regardless, I missed that one and had to go look for it.

    Just a quicky.

    Got home this week to another parcel from Jonesboro in Arkansas

    My friend Steve of the two Purple Hearts, had gathered me some plates that fit right into my box of interest.

    The RC Cola vanity plate is cool, as I used to drink it years ago in South Africa.







    Randomly other stuff.


    It is winter in South Africa right now. And COLD.

    I saw 37’C in my car this week.

    A friend sent me this pic, spotted on the way to work, yes, real central heating.


    Note the street sign.

    In South Africa, a Traffic light is known as. ROBOT......




    New meaning to getting on your high horse??

    Dennis has continued work, and collection of bits for his replica gas station.

    Soffits are the current challenge, the interior is long since completed.




    Yesterday he went to a dodgy part of St Louis, guns needed, and bought one of two payphone boxes.



    Number two to be collected soon.



    Busy weekend, loads done over at Sally’s place


    And sunset by her.

    Been waiting for these photos from Andy.

    Between running a cattle farm, hobbies, engineering and being the primary carer for his disabled wife he needed to get me some more photos of the interior of the Bel Air

    These came today.

    What you see is what you get, simply put.

    Nice rear.




    Love spats.







    Then the rose tinted glasses come off.

    That’s the rear bench seat.



    Roof, no silver lining here.



    Passenger side ear door, needs door card.




    Rear parcel shelf.


    P

    Passenger front door, again needing a door card.



    Steering view of dash.

    Basic really.



    And looking over to the right.



    Lastly, drivers side door and card.

    Clearly has had a good life, still, I would replace it if I could.




    So according to information,the car should start and drive, despite gas tank being on the “rear seat”


    Maybe I need to go look for myself.

    Massive stock lists.

    Some bits not cheap, but cannot make them myself




    A few random bits.

    Dennis put up a long distance telephone to support the call box.



    One of my current favourite builds.

    Started out with a rotted out VW Beetle.

    BUILD THREAD AND MANY PHOTOS HERE:

    That Bubble Top VW Beetle from the other thread. | Retro Rides


    Resulted in a prize winner.



    Unseasonably hot weather has resulted in early harvesting out back behind my house.




    Really good yields this year. Enough to waste too.



    Even Harley was not enjoying it.

    Seeking coolness on the lawn.




    And after a stream or is that bunch of time wasters so far, I washed the Blazer this morning early and put it out front with the For Sale signs up.

    You never know, you know.







    Still a neat looking rear end.
