Yes, I believe we had the Crown model. That was a 70s or 80s model...

I've got a Datsun electric shaver that came with my uncle's old Datsun 2600. I think the Datsun 2600 was a competitor for the Toyota Crown, it was pretty fancy, it had a cigarette lighter and radio controls in the back of the console.

My cuz took it to the wreckers after my uncle died, it was pretty rusty, but the engine (which I think was the same as the 260Z) still ran great. Cheers, Terry. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

I was at my parents house today and went in the shed and went through my grandpa's tools we inherited. Nothing too old but thought I would share.

First is a battery terminal clamp puller #21. Brand is Bluebird. Did a google and I read they were bought out in the 1950's by Snap-on.

 

Then there was a 15/16 Barcalo Buffalo wrench and I don't know how old it is.

Then there was a 15/16 Barcalo Buffalo wrench and I don't know how old it is.




I was digging through some today and found a wrench with the same brand.  Picture is blurry, but it says Barcalo Buffalo.



I found a really cool set of Open end/box end wrenches, but the 2 smaller ones seem to be made of an inferior metal.



Here is another group of wrenches.  The top 7 are from a company called Williams and they are the "Superwrench", but obviously from different years.
Below that is a little Hazet, a serpentine Billings and a big old Bonney. 



I still have a box of misc wrenches that I haven't messed with.  There may be some cool ones in there.

Is the biggest wrench 3/4 open end and 7/8 box end? I don't think I've seen combination wrenches with a box end like that before..but I'm pretty young and don't know much about vintage tools.

the biggest one is 7/8.  There are a lot  of wrenches that are strange to me in this box.  I need to get on the garage journal and learn.
