Bit under 2 hours left to bid on the 02/02 Brass hood ornament. Current bid is $200. Remember 1/2 of the winning bid goes to Steve to help keep doors to this place open.

Just got home from an all day baseball tournament and found #47 on the door step.


I already test fit it and while it will need a tiny bit of tweaking, it fits nicely. Thanks again John. For now, it's sitting on a little glass shelf next to another of your works.

Well thank you John and thank you Marlyn (p0pz). Received a hefty PayPal notice with Marlyn's $$.

Again John... you didn't have to do that. But I AM glad someone else gets to put their hands on one of those big brass beasts.

Thank you once again for all you do to support us here.

Yesterday afternoon after completing the 'have toos,' I sat in the shade by my little shop, had a local Jazz station on, sipped iced tea, cleaned up some of the casting flash on the hood ornament with my jewelers files, and did a little 600 grit sanding. All in all tinkering on The Ornament is very relaxing and a nice way to spend time. Thanks John.

Last two ornaments are in the mail...including the brass auction piece.

Thanks to everyone that bought one. We were able to donate $1125 to Steve to keep this place going.

My utmost thanks to both Steve and John. I stop in here several times a day clear my mind (whats left of it) of all the trash I deal with on a daily basis and focus on what is really important. Goofy little rear engine cars.
