Thursday Doors – Final Vintage

DSC_3868

This is the last of my vintage Thursday Doors and it’s certainly a very mixed bag. I’ll start with the vehicles that have actual doors attached to them, like the Kenworth truck above.

There were a few tractors with doors but the older ones without them were much more interesting.

 

 

These motorcycles definitely didn’t have any doors attached either.

For anyone who loves vintage, whatever era, this event was fascinating. Being in a DIY frame of mind with our house renovations the following images really meant a lot to us.

One Hundred Years of Hammers (1890-1990)

There was so much to take in, this slide show is only a fraction of what was on display.

I particularly liked the painted tractor seats, they would make great bar stools although I might add a cushion for comfort. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this drive down memory lane. For a great selection of international Thursday Doors, have a look at Norm’s blog and click the blue ‘frog’ link at the end of his post.

    Thanks for sharing these pictures, Jean. I love old tools. Just imagining how they were used and what they helped build is a fun few minutes. I could spend hours wondering around that place.

    Made my dessert, before having people over for coffee, and later going to Sacramento to my daughter, so now I have some time to blog:) With two American son-in-laws we can’t get away without celebrating Thanksgiving:)
    It looks fun to browse around here. The tractor seats especially caught my eye – you’re right, they would serve great as bar stools:)

    What a great idea it would be to have tractor seat bar stools! I wonder if they are very comfortable? Enjoyed the jolt back in time – great pix.

    Amazing. I too love the painted farm machinery seats 🙂 When I was young there were plenty of them laying around in the barns. Not now 🙂
