Thank you,

I would really enjoy that too- this is truly museum quality stuff. Would really like to learn history of how and when you found each item too!

I think there was a fascination with eyes in popular culture at some point.  One of my early cars, 1964 Rambler American had the climate controls in a centralized location on the dashboard and it was called the "Weather Eye" - that was printed on the dash.  It was laid out in a circular manner with everything working off a single multi-function control knob.  Very futuristic. Yup, flathead 6, 3 on the tree, robin's egg blue  what a beauty.  You could actually stand in the engine bay to work on the carb or whatnot.

But I digress, love your collection, you should continue to post pictures of various parts of the collection in more detail.
Thank you,
Mark

Thank you! I have added a bit since I posted this. Have a few more interesting pieces. I will post more pics as soon as I can. (My "man cave" is getting a slight renovation, so I have had to pack things up for a while, but getting ready to display again, soon!)
