Dutch, I saw this a while back and thought of you. Sadly, the owner said it was already sold.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Yep!

My previous employer (despite being a crappy place to work) has some really cool old lathes and polishing equipment. A lot of the stuff is WWII-era and still kicking. They have two really cool old vertical turret lathes that you fly press reminded me of.

I love old machinery.

Picked up this 1883 ,174kg / 383pound english anvil. Not sure if it`s a keeper yet but it came out pretty nice.
Looks like it`s under warranty as well...

What is it about anvils that make them so attractive? I have no need for one, but I still want one.
