    You actually have empty display space?:yikes: Perish the thought!:biglaugh:

    Just kidding, at least the majority of your collectibles have places to be displayed. Mine are mostly sitting in boxes.

    Here's mine. All of these photos are from a few years ago.
    The Mustang belongs to a friend. The Ranchero is my Father-in-law's car. (you can read about it here: http://www.stationwagonforums.com/forums/threads/got-a-new-project-car.8318/ )

    My wife's grandfather collected vintage license plates. When he passed away, her Grandmother gave them to me as a gift. They are now proudly displayed on the wall.

    There is more, but you get the idea.

    Nice assemblage of cars and displays. I wish mine was this organized.

    Thanks Safarinut. Your collection is pretty impressive. It looks pretty organized to me. A place for everything and everything all over the place... right?

    Every winter the creativity bug hits. I enjoy repurposing stuff and often see something different in items I have laying around. An early November cold snap and snow gave me some time to finish some unfinished projects I had already started. The picture frame is an old early 1900 mirror. I rebuilt an old rotted grille shell turning it into a nice display shelf. Odd headlight rims are perfect for some round mirrors I had. Old car shirts make nice shop rags but I like to cut and frame some of the graphic designs. The traffic light used to be outside when my kids were growing up. I made a stand for it and turned it into a lamp.

    Mannnnnn, I would love to come visit, just to see your toy collection. And the creativity on those projects, that's very cool.

    That's my favorite too, bu the picture frame is a close second. Nice work on all. Nice use of a rotor for a stand. What is the pipe made from that supports the light?

    It appears to be an AWD driveshaft.

    It is actually a glass pack muffler I had. Not much good when you only have one so I decided to give it a new life with my traffic light. Rotors actually make nice stands. I made a set of stanchions years ago that I use when I have had my cars on display in a local Mall. Even made my Grandson some out of pulleys for his custom Pedal car.
