"Do you see what I see?" __ One Republic __ 'Stop & Stare'


The recent warmer temps & sunshine, along with seeing many older vehicles out'n'about while I'm driving my "winter" 1979 Caprice Classic, have me itchin' to drive my "summer" 1989 Caprice Classic, for which I need energy to detail it. I'll probably re-instate complete insurance on it soon. With no job prospects or disability (recently received a rejection letter, but will appeal), I'll probably leave my '79 & '81 MCs in storage this season, in an attempt to try to keep them. MEANTIME, I've been "playing around" with some of my scale model cars....


Last year, I bought 2 large display cases to showcase more of my collection. When I put cars in them, however, I was disappointed at the "wasted space" created by the rather tall top/cover. It didn't bother me enough to do anything about it, though, at the time. BUT ... with the recent addition of dealer promo models & the desire to display a few more of my small scale cars, the "wasted space" became a bit of an aggravator. So, using plexiglass that Dad & Mom had, a family friend cut 2 pieces to add a "layer" to each case. Trying to figure out how to support the new level, I happened to walk past a can of Tinker Toys ... & bam, found my "posts"! I secured the Tinker Toys to the plexiglass & the bottom of the case with tape. While the Tinker Toys take up a bit too much space (to my liking) on the lower level, it's better to virtually double my "display space" instead of buying a 3rd case ... for now.

Of course, my nephew knows NOT to play with Uncle Cort's "special display" cars; besides, he has his own (some of which I bought him; some of which were/are mine). I took this pic of Nephew James & Niece Jennalyn:
