A nice old transistor radio in the form of Bibendum.

I have finally started framing some of my original motorcycle posters. I have a long way to go and not enough wall space, but it is a start…
Recently, while helping my parents clean out the family ranch, I came across an old Union Pacific boxcar form the 1940’s that had come to rest on the property and functioned as a wood shed. I tried to figure out how I could cut out one of the sides and preserve it as a wall in my office, but my father was having none of it, as it had already been sold with the ranch. So I busted out my camera and took as many photos of the rusty relic as I could before leaving the ranch for the final time.
Wow, probably the single-most amazing porcelain sign I have ever seen! Too bad the seller wants $28,000 for it…
Great art from magic book covers in a time when magic was macabre. These were all part of a Potter & Potter Auction in Chicago.
It occurred to me today that Benzina magazine only published a small portion of my French Motorcycle Posters, so I thought I should get them up here so everyone could enjoy:
The recent auction was a total bust, as far as bargains go, so I used my time to capture some of nature’s paintings. I love the patina and the erosion that happens over time to metal and paint. Each small scene is there, waiting to be seen. Auction attendees were looking at me like I was crazy as I snapped hundreds of close-up photos while they were examining possible purchases. I think I left the auction with the best treasures – photos!

Recently on our trip to Ecuador we got lucky and found some vintage treasures. One of the most unusual was a pair of embossed glass Coca Cola jars from a drugstore. My wife, who is originally from Guayaquil, Ecuador, said she remembers seeing this kind of jar in the small drug stores when she was a little kid in the mid 60’s. They were used to distribute candy.
