Here’s another quick gallery from the improv road trip that Haley and I got to take, and this should appeal to the kid in all of you. Haley likes checking out antique stores…something about old crystal place ware and silver platters. Honestly, there are two things easily found in antique stores that I could give a rat’s backside about: old license plates and old toy cars. My tastes are varied, but basically if it has four wheels, is shaped like a car, and (usually) is older than I am, I’m intrigued. Some of the toys I’ve seen are beautifully detailed or resemble some of the hand-me-down stuff I had as a kid. Other stuff is just plain cool, like old metal Tonka trucks and 1950s tin-toy style cars. We hit up two antique stores in the Colorado Springs area, and as she walked aisle after aisle looking for trays, I was hunting for toys. Finding a 1965 Ford Mustang that was filled with Jim Beam was pretty cool, and I nearly caved over $300 worth of Hot Wheels being sold as a set that had a lot of the rubber-tire cars in it, but instead settled on a red-and-white Plymouth Belvedere die-cast model for $40, which will be part of my office. There’s really cool stuff in here…some of the hook-and-ladder fire trucks are just badass!
