Who collects hubcaps? What do you have?

Right now, I have more license plates than hubcaps…!

I have maybe a dozen or so of some of what I thought were the more stylish ones I came across when digging thru yards.  Was never really passionate in collecting them, though.  Most seemed like rather plain "pie tins" to me.  

Here are four of them I have sitting on a bookcase in my home office.  Clockwise from upper left...late '60's Impala, early '60's T-bird, '65 Fairlane, '71 Buick Boattail Riviera.

I too have more license plates than hub caps, but I like metal signs, license plates etc. I just like to get them from places I've been so most of the stuff in my garage comes with a story, my favorite is gas station sign I bought in Reynolds Alberta. I'd go out to the garage and snap a picture of it BUT IT SNOWING again.

LOL! "Snowing again" seems to be a recurring theme this ... uh, spring? heh. Forgot ... I do also have some metal signs I got while traveling Route 66 in 2009. Those are certainly easier to store or display than hubcaps.

Still ... really like your collections, mcarlo77 (favorite of yours is that Riv!) & dynchel (really like the way you have yours displayed)!
