It just dawned on me that some of the counting mechanisms (clocks)
I have worked on and the pumps they belong in are nearing
100 yrs old..... ! cool
In 14 more yrs, the first model Veeder Root will be 100 yrs old
I finally found the bottom sheet metal for my 32 V-R ! it is complete cool
Actually my Bowser may be over 100, if it was made in 13. shocked
We are living in the Golden Age laugh cool

I had a couple visitors to my place a week ago for the first time...of course walking in to my collection is a bit overwhelming to most, but I give the "tour" and talk about items of interest. On the dining room table are 3 globes, one of which is a round "VISIBLE GASOLINE" ball globe. I think it was a bit of a realization for me as well when I shared with them that the globe was around 100 years old. It's a testament to our hobby how much stuff is around that is a century old or older.....
