I used to collect pictures of dead presidents. Got tired of the collection and traded it for a Cord 812.

I collect models of Cord Westchesters. (Duh.) Not as easy as you might think, since most commercial models are Phaetons and Cabriolets.

Includes:
- A 1/24th scale model of my sedan that Betty commissioned for me from a local modeler as a surprise birthday present. Uses some Monogram parts but a completely scratch-built body and interior.
- A 1/33rd scale bronze Commemorative Cord from the ACD Club's project of a few years ago.
- A 1/33rd scale pewter model by Gerald Wingrove.
- A 1/33rd scale Auburn rubber toy. (Yes Chris, it's red and used.)
- 2 1/48th scale MTIs (Westborough MA) from the 1970s. One in raw pewter, the other painted by the factory to match my car. (Cord #4 -- pre-Moonshadow.) My Cord was the prototype for this car, done when I lived in the area.
- A buch of Hot Wheels with varying colors and decals. One was custom painted to match Moonshadow by my friend Adrian Grieve. Adrian made correct Cord hubcaps for it too.
- A 1/87th (HO scale) resin kit. (unbuilt)
- A 1/24th scale resin body hood and fenders, intended to convert the Monogram supercharged Phaeton to an unsupercharged Westchester.

Ain't eBay wonderful?

I collect prewar automotive literature and photos. I'll take a photo of a prewar car taken up to the early 60s. I concentrate on the cars I like so I have a ton of prewar Mercedes, with a bunch of Stutz, ACD, Hupp, Graham, and big Classics stuff thrown in.

I will buy photo albums if anyone has one to sell :)

eBay is great but I found myself setting the market for the stuff I was buying. Ten years ago I was the only guy buying certain prewar photos. If there was a photo I really wanted I paid the price (which was usually never more than 5 dollars). There was never anyone bidding against me. However, by paying the rate I had set the price which gradually seemed to go up even through there were no other bidders. These days there are a bunch of guys that will go after a really good prewar taken photo. Of course, certain guys go for certain kids of cars.

Merdina is most recognizable to me, as the birthplace of the famous Waco Aircraft Company. the evolution of this most successful and influential company went from Weaver to Advance to Waco Aircraft and went from Medina to Lorraine to Troy Ohio. I have a LOT of those original company archives, dwgs, files, photos historic documents as part of MY aviation history collections. The files are also filled with many letters from very famous aviators and aviation company presidents and history makers.
Weaver was only in Medina from 1921-23 and moved to Lorraine in 1924. One of the main Medina items is the Weaver company bank account book with all the wages paid and income and expenses noted for those early years. Very amusing to see 60-70 hour weeks and noting pay raises in amounts as small as 2 1/2 cents! <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->
