Been looking for indirect lighting for my lounge. Picked the first one up at a Hot Rod show for $10.00!

This one I actually bought with a crappy modern shade. I then found the kool shade & it fit just right. $25.00 total.

Picked this little lantern up at an antique mall for $3.00. I'm hoping to find some way to electrify it.

Let's see everyone else's lamps. I know there're some kool ones out there.

I've heard people here talk of the fictitious "Owl Central" as the counterpart to Tiki Central. I think I found a devotee. This REALLY creeped me out, I guess like some people feel creeped out by some of our HUGE Tiki collections.

Local retirement village estate sale being held this weekend:

NOTE: Sorry all, the link above no longer works. I should have copied some of the photos to post here. Live and learn.

OMG! I went to estate sale a few years ago but instead of owls it was camels. It was crazy...I kept wondering if the old guy had had died in some sort of camel avalanche..and which one was the camel that broke the dude's back..*groan* sorry!

One of my most prized possessions is this space age lamp that I scored about 10 years ago in a MCM store in Boston:


The top of the light is orange, not yellow as the picture makes it look like.

This hanging ashtray I picked up a few weeks back. Not Tiki, but I love it. I had to put it in the cabana. Not sure if it will be used, come to think of it someone must have realized what it was since I did find a few matches in it the other day.



Looking at it from the back of the bar.

55 T Bird: 292 cid, original 6V system, convertible top & hardtop with opera windows, 3 speed with overdrive.. just drove it back from San Francisco on Thursday with my 83 yr old uncle richard, who served as my mechanic and co-pilot.

so between, oh i'd say Pinole (45 mins outside SF) and Redding, i couldnt put my feet down. it was SO HOT ~ over 100 degrees.. the engine heat plus the radiant heat = misery. i made a "hillbilly air conditioner".. bought a cat litter pan and a bag of ice to rest my feet in and towels to cool off. ahhh...so by Medford, all the ice had melted, and we stopped for dinner ~ then i finally got to drive my own car. lets just say "luckily no one was killed". drum brakes. geez. gotta stand on the pedal to get the car to stop.

we made it home at 4:00 am friday morning. we stopped LOTS for gas (not sure the gages were working ~ they did "in town" .. but on the freeway, stuff started to friz out).. we're buring oil at 1 qt / fill up (uncle richard believes its the dual chamber fuel pump burning the oil, not the engine itself). the car fits in the garage. we have 2 single car garages.. one was 90" wide, the other 107". thankfully the 107" garage is also **just** deep enough to fit. i think we'll remove the workbench for a little bit more room.

Oh I just turned a little greener dogbytes. Lucky you.

Nice ride! I've got a 59 Impala with drum brakes! Unfortunately, a couple months ago, Bambi decided to put those brakes to the test. I've got a dented fender & Bambi won't be frolicking anytime soon! Damn deer! Disc brake conversion is on the way.

I think I just wet myself some.

No room for the dogs though.

Dogbytes,
Does it have that great vintage feature the vacuum vent? It took me a while to figure out what those doors under my feet were for. In the days before AC, those doors blow some fast air to cool you off. I had a 65 Cuda and just cleaned it all up, vacuumed it out and everything. Got on the interstate and at 65 mph opened the vent door. 30 years worth of dry leaves came out at 65 mph and pelted my body and FILLED the car with leaves...
My '99's AC is out and I wish I had a vent door down there!
Probably leaking oil, not burning it. When it's warmed up. look for white smoke in the exhause, especially as you rev it for evidence of burning oil. If it is, it may stop as you drive it and the rings loosen up.

Nice!

Signed print (felt tip, 1965) of Tretchikoff's "Lady From Orient". I actually didn't notice the sig until I was washing off what must've been several decades' worth of nicotine... ($1)

Didn't score much Tiki at Brimfield, but I did find this game I've been looking for for years & some kool fezzes complete with a Shriner dude!
