If my brother Rob were a billionaire I suspect his car collection might look a little like this.

Death Head Jacket

I’ve posted one of these before. It’s a Japanese market piece. I’d love to have one but once you factor the exchange rate you could buy a motorcycle project with the same money.

From Dice. My wife isn’t feeling it. I’m sure my neighborhood association would really like it though.

GME Tank

Same tank. An original GME frisco’d Mustang built from the old Mustang scooter tooling. This one had a rough period in it’s life. After a stupid amount of time spent retunneling, repairing and rebuilding I hope to have it back in the breeze again soon.

Steam Plant

My brother Rob with my Dad’s model steam engine in the Ballard Steam Plant (circa 1906). The steam planet is now a museum open for tours. Pretty amazing place.

I might need some help from Rob on this one. mid-to-late 30's Scout? Everything in this photo is cool.

Based on the background it looks like this photo might have been shot in Oregon. Anyone recognize the location?

My wife has been extremely tolerant of my vintage motorcycle obsession over the years. One component of that has been her willingness to occasionally bail me out when the when the almost inevitable mechanical happens on 50+ year old motorcycles. In appreciation I like to make the occasional rescue as painlessly as possible for her (i.e. throw a ramp in the truck and drive to wherever we are). If the truck breaks down on the way there that sort of becomes too much to ask. At 20 years old and nearly 200,000 my previous hauler was starting to become less than reliable. I recently opted to replace it. So far the new one has not hauled a bike. Is it obvious I have a thing for blue?
 I love the new truck but I'll still miss the old one. My son is already preferring to ride in the backseat of this one over the jump-seat in the old one. His fit back there was better 10 years ago.
