You can tell it was the kind of antique mall that grandmas go to in search of BRASS. There was so much stuff made out of brass and there were cool signs too. Some Coleman coolers and a really cool blue cooler that was either revolution or resolution, but I can’t find anything in google. Anyway, didn’t get any of those. I grabbed an old oil can, a super odd ratchet, and a couple of itty bitty teeny weeny hurricane lamps.

Levi, that ratchet and socket is a very early one  probably 20's maybe late teens -  made before they started forging and broaching sockets in a big way.

For an antique store that's a great price.  Yard sales you can often get then for less, (not always) but you did fine.
Is the ratcheting part working?  If its rough get some ATF in there and work it a bit.  Then a light lube.

Yeah ratchet works just fine. Same size as the bolt on my vise so I tried it and it works great. I wish my dad didn’t junk my grandpas Mac ratchets. They were stuck but he didn’t really try to unfreeze em.

That's a shame, as even if they were broken (they rarely are) MAC has a great warranty.  Generally a simple disassembly, re-lube and reassembly will get most ratchets back in action.

Lel I kept telling my dad about the warranty but he didn’t even want to try because they were stuck from rust because my grandpa had them in open plastic bin thing on the floor around his custom pit thing for working on cars (I’ll have to find a pic) and they got rusted after my grandpa passed because there was nobody to pump the rainwater out of the pit and garage to water then got into the ratchet bins. He had a magnificent collection after being a mechanic and owning his own shops for 50-60 years. Twas beautiful. Mac, snap on, Cornwell, Chicago air tools, and a few other brands of 60s-90s tools. Stuff from t-handle socket drivers to some of the weirdest specialty wrenches that are used for obsolete stuff on cars. For most of his career, he did alignments. He did it the old school way with a tow bar and chalk lines on tires. I don’t know how he did it but I always helped him. Sadly though, my dad got rid of sooo many wrenches, ratchets, sockets, air drivers, and so much more. The only tools that my grandpa ever got rid of were Mac wooden screwdrivers. He had thousands at one time in the 80s, according to my dad, who always talks about my grandpa. Him and his brothers had to build the shop at my grandpas home while he watched from the rafters eating a sandwich or something. Anyway, my dad only kept the suuuuper mint stuff we had from the 60s. I have a ratchet in my bedroom because it’s really cool. It’s a 120 tooth ratchet that my grandpa had gold plated and he made a felt lined box for it out of purdy oak. If I ever remember, I’ll show it to you guys.

That plated ratchet may have been a presentation ratchet.  Many companies "back in the day" did such.  Even Coleman gold plated lanterns are not too unusual to find.

I know Mac made a gold ratchet in the 90s. There’s one on the bay. This one has the old logo from the 60s though, and I know for a fact he made the box. We used to have pictures of him making it. There is still a chance though.

I haven't seen it Levi.  

But this is a parent saying a 46 Plymouth is unsafe?

The least safe vehicle I ever owned was a 1947 ford PU.  no bed;  the Flathead 6 and crash-box tranny dumped, and a 375 HP 327 with a Corvette Muncie 4 speed dropped in.

That thing was scary fast.  Only one of my friends would even try to drive it.  I could stomp the gas pedal in 4th at 70 and start to spin the tires.  I only lost a race once, against a big block Pontiac in a LeMans.  - 12 second car.  we ran a near stalemate with my bumper at his door.  He could not believe it....

What no one really realized was how light it was without the heavy Flathead.  And ditching the bed made it lighter still.  I'd guess only 2000 lbs...

It's in pieces all over my shop and yard these days, but someday I'll rebuild it...

My dads comaro used to be a cranberry red 1970 comaro with the Tatar deluxe interior and all of its grandma wood paneled glory with a factory original 350. In 1982, as a senior in highschool, he tore it all apart, repainted it at home, and swapped it with a 396 L-78. It’s kinda funny because he threw in a Muncie rockcrusher and I live walking distance from where it was built. Anyway, it’s sounds real good. I forget what exhaust he had put on it. I know it’s one of the real popular ones.6FA08EA7-DA1C-4F27-978D-6CD48994ED54.jpeg  452DF72A-E1E0-4BAC-9539-79AEEC8D66B4.jpeg  E63D1486-E8A3-489E-B9FE-327E2E718179.jpeg

Hey Levi, if it weren't for sentimental reasons I wouldn't cry a bit over a scrapped Mac ratchet. They are garbage. After blowing the head out on mine for the third time and having it rebuilt I gave it to my dad who wasn't strong enough to break anything anymore. After he passed I happily sold it when we did the inevitable cleanout. You got a deal on the Mossberg. A car is only as safe as the driver, hope that you can come up with something cool. E.

Older cars are inherently unsafe in most collisions. While they may be "built like a tank", they will transfer impact energy to your body in an accident. 

Don't get me wrong; I love old cars, have owned several, and will likely own several more, but they are not safe compared to today's cars, and as such are not well-suited to young drivers.

@egroscup really, my grandpa never seemed to have trouble with them and he was a big fan a cheater bars. He pinstriped a 1/4 thick steel bar with El Destroyer and a bunch of random lines. He broke many a ratchet with that, but somehow not but maybe one or two Mac ones. He shredded a few craftsman ones though.

He sure does. We had to find what to do with it quick when we sold my grandpas house because well his 6 car garage could fit it nicely. Went ahead and got a storage unit for it. He’s a real bum about taking it out though. I don’t have time blah blah blah. It gets taken out maybe twice a year. But, he’s been to the same car show every year since 1983 so he always gets a premium spot saved there. It’s nice. He also used to have an 89 s10 slammed with an LS swap and repainted slick gloss black. Man that thing was puuuuuuuurdy with all of the plastic replaced with chromed steel too. He sold that however. My favorite car that the family has was probably my grandpas car that he got after he got out of the army. A 65’ Plymouth fury. White Beauty he called it.

     Just looked up popular science. Seems really cool being founded in 1878. I’m just going out on a whim and say those were made in the fifties though considering buying a new or used car wasn’t all that popular until the 20s (though there was the model t) and let’s be honest, you were pretty poor if you didn’t have a car by the fifties. Also just remembered, I mainly want a 46 Plymouth for a few reasons. It’s looks beautiful (look up 1946 Plymouth special deluxe business coupe), they’re fairly cheap for a car of that age, and they are SO simple. So easy to work on man. The extreme minimal wiring is awesome. However, the fact the the radio was an an option might suck.

You haven't seen how mangled a person can become after being bounced around in a steel box, with high impacts.  

Having said that,  it depends on which vehicle is moving fast - 1960 T bird two cases - for reference a 60 T bird weighed 4000 lbs:  
  • A girl I knew in high school - T boned in an intersection ON THE DRIVERS SIDE at 45 MPH by a two ton truck:  Driver jostled, but un-hurt
  • My Car (different T-bird)  - I'm stopped in the let lane to make a left turn.  a Toyota (new at the time) with 4 students, (all classmates of mine) were changing lanes to pass me on the right, and didn't realize I was stopped.   Toyota's drivers side impacted my right corner 
 Result: Toyota totaled, (left front caved so far the wells was crushing the foot compartment for the driver, luckily he wasn't  pinned.  My car: rocked slightly and rolled forward a few feet,  Left tail light cracked, bumper jumped far enough to scratch the paint slightly the tail light housing was dented.  $200 damage....  I was uninjured and assisted the victims in the Toyota.
  • All four people in the Toyota went to the hospital.  One girl required plastic surgery.  (face first in the windshield)
  • Driver stunned and exited the car, (face into the steering wheel) He avoided being run over because I grabbed him and pulled him clear...
  • broken arm and I think an ankle for the other two girls

Bottom Line is that being the target in those old tanks, you were generally safer.  Being an occupant, in a high impact vehicle at speed, with or without seat belts, you were far more likely to be injured or killed.

Another case;  A good friend was in a brand new sprint car.  (Wingless this night)  He caught a rut (dirt track) flipped, and the cage slammed into the wall.  Car bounced a couple more times and settled.  - You have seen this type of crash many times on TV racing if you follow Sprinters.  It's common and generally no big deal,  His seat came loose and his head was bashing the top bars of the cage.  Massive head injuries - even with the helmet.  He died on the way to the hospital.  RIP Lloyd

You are a very neat young man Levi, and someday I would like to meet you. For a young person you at least have interesting tastes. However....  The mechanical side of a De lorean is pure scrap iron. You can do your own research but the P.R.V. v-6 in those never had a real chance and parts are getting near impossible.  Any Ford,Chevy, Dodge, Honda or Toyota v-6 adapted in would be worlds better. By the way,PRV stands for Puegot, Renalt, Volvo. It took all three of them together to create something so bad. 
I wish you well on your hunt for an old car, remember the biggest safety feature of any car no matter how old is the driver.

They even build custom back to the future cars in the original storage facility, and they’re a dealer, so really if you want to shed 25 thou, you could pick one up brand new in Texas. The safest car that I’ve ever considered is a late second gen (79-81) comaro z or Berlinnetta. A mint one with 1000 miles just sold at auction for 13 thousand. That’s pretty epic for 1000 miles. I know that there are plenty at the local scrapyard too. 
My friends don’t call me “Lantern Levi” for nothin’,
if they did call me that.

The biggest lie I tell myself is

Yesterday the wife and I toured the Museum of Automobiles right here in the state park where we are camped. Former governor of Arkansas, Winthrop Rockefeller had something to do with it in its beginnings and there is a couple of Caddies in there that belonged to him. But for Levi there is a Desoto also

Couple of DeSotos on the bay too. Nothing wrong with a Citroen except parts availability in the U.S. I rather like them, cute little Ami 8 on the bay near here too. E.
