I have been an collector ever since I can remember. My fascination with cars started at age 13 when my grandfather gave me his 1950 Plymouth coupe with 26,000 original miles. Many cars have come and gone through the years, but Barb and I kept 3 favorites to pass on to the kids--a 1924 Ford Model T, the 1950 Plymouth, and a 1928 Ford Model A Sport Coupe.

My current collecting interests include Minnesota made or related license plates, chauffeur and taxi badges, keychain license tags, cereal license plates, spark plugs, handy oilers, oil cans, road maps, and general automobilia. Other collecting interests include mechanical calculating devices, slide rules, microcomputers, bobbing head dolls, and Metlox California Provincial Poppy Trail dinnerware.

I have pictured in my galleries here some of the items I have collected over the years. I hope you enjoy them. I hope to add more pictures to the various galleries in the future.
