Spent $20 on vintage boxes, license plates and match books.

The underside of the box tops are in better shape and show cooler graphics, so I will flip the tops when I get around to building.

Doug, I can't read the plate year, but I think it is not so very old.  But sure beat up!

Concur on the Texas plate Uncle John. I have one of those in my stash, just not as old.

Thanks, Doug and Alan.  I feel like I got lucky.   The Texas plate is my fave too.  I was holding it up against an LPG that needs a re-do.   I think I will use it for that.

Great Value for $20 'UJ', which still allows you to be an honoured member of the "Tight Ass Club", Luv all the worthwhile purchases, but the Texas Plate stands out in my mind, looking forward to seeing, and hearing the completed builds. :-)
