My parents used to collect antiques, mainly furniture. Well, they're totally out of the business, and we are trying to get some money for all this stuff. So, I go down to the basement to have a look at what we have. I see the old chest, the kind that look like treasure chests. So, after about 10 minutes, I finally pop the lid open. Oh, just some newspaper. From Feb 14, Sunday, 1965! Just looking through is so cool. It has some car dealer ads, where one of them has a 65 Mustang, doesn't say a price. It has the obituaries, some classifieds, and some other stuff. Really neat. I took them out to keep them.

That's really cool. Last year at a garage sale I picked up a Life magazine from the 50's, just happened to be Marilyn Monroe on the front cover with an article on her inside! The guy only wanted $5!!

What I liked so much about it was all the commercials were hand drawn!

I love old stuff!

Thanks

Cool, I bought a Popular science mag from 64 on ebay last year for 5 bucks because the cover story was about the"New [color:red]Mustang</font color=red> from [color:blue]Ford</font color=blue>"

It also had some cool other things too, Alot about computers and investing in IBM, Man, I would be rolling in cash now!!!!!!

A few years ago I stumbled accross a magazine at an antique show. The magazine was Speed and Custom and the cover had the headline - First Report: Mustang, Ford's Hot Sporty Car. It is dated June 1964.

It's pretty neat. They talk about how reasonably priced it is and how it is really the first car designed for many different uses.

Thats pretty cool! Last year i really got into mustangs and my dad told me to look in the fireproof chest that he had and told me that i could have his old model of a 65 mustang that he built when he was little! The man has some pretty cool stuff that he still has along with the number one issue of superman and some old records plus more!

Boy you hit the nail on one of my other weakness! I've got over 500 Newspapers dating back to the 1860's, a few hundred Magazines and comic books dating back to the 1950's, and of course who can be a true collector without have a few baseball cards...last time I counted (about 5 years ago) I was at 64,000 cards.

I love going through the automotive classifieds back in the 50's & 60's. I remember coming across this one ad in a S.F. Chronicle back from 1969, where an owner was trying to sell his 66 Shelby GT350 for $3500.00 or best offer.

As the old saying goes "If you knew then, what you know now...."

In 1970 my younger brother test drove a clean 65 GT350 that was for sale in the San Fernando Valley for $1900.00, didn't buy it because it was to noisy inside. Instead he bought a 65 Sunbeam Tiger for $1500.00.(at least it had a Ford powertrain), Kept it for a couple of years and traded it straight across for a beat up 68 El Camino and a Greeves dirt bike. (claimed temporary insanity)
