If I had enough cash and a big heated garage or hangar, I would collect old muscle cars.
Until then I'm stuck with my Hot Wheels from the 1960's and 70's.
I'm thinking about starting to collect classic vinyl recordings again.
They are sooooo sweet to listen to.

I'd go with a hanger. It would have all sorts of stuff. Cars, trucks, farm tractors, Fire trucks.

Nice.
I'm having a Belgian beer as I type
Floreffe Tripel from Quenast.
Very very nice beer.
I figure any beer that's bottles with a cork instead of a cap deserves my attention
The Corsican I had earlier was pretty good too!

I'd be in big trouble if I had one of those in my house
Henri deserved a tag, so I did it.
Don't tell Keefer

One of these days I'll have to take some pictures of my collection of books, brass bells, wood carvings and old tools.
My wife likes antique tea cups.

Haha let me know when you're having a garage sale XID. Albany is not too far from my sister's place in MA.

When I was about 15 or 16, I worked for a land care guy. Bill Henderson. Ex merchant marine. Great guy. Every Tuesday at lunch we'd go to the Green Hornet tavern for beer, pool and pickled eggs

Anyways, on the side he had a service where he'd clean out people's basements. For free. Some of the stuff he'd pull out of people's houses was amazing. Antiques, first editions, jewlery, all kinds of stuff. Also, when driving between jobs, anytime there was anything even remotely worth salvaging in someon's garbage, he'd stop and make us haul it into the back of his truck.

He also owned an old farmhouse (ca. 1850's) out in the country with a huge barn. He stashed all the stuff he got for free in that barn. It was jam packed with a mixture of junk and treasures and every year he would have "Henderson's World Famous Garage Sale". It was quite the event. He made thousands and thousand of dollars above and beyond the land care business on what others considered trash.

It was one of the most fun jobs I ever had, and I miss the old guy. To a certain extent, he helped shape my life and my appreciation for things most people find useless.
