that question by saying "Just another guy who enjoys the nostalgic
memories of the 1950's". But then, if you've already read my introductory
remarks, you'll know that.
confess to the fact that I am a collector. I always have been and
suspect I always will be. My current interest in petroleum collectibles is a
direct result of my long time interest in the mid fifties Classic Chevys. It all
began in 1975 when I acquired what proved to be a prize winning '55 Chev
from a fellow co-worker. (See "The Story of Anna")
anything like me and admit to being a "Collector" then you will
understand and appreciate the special feeling that is associated with finding
another prized possession. And if you don't know what I'm talking about
then I'm very surprised that you found your way into "Bud's World". But
I'm glad you did.
the thrill of finding a new treasure is very short lived and we
quickly find ourselves in the same position we were earlier - "Still looking".
That is why I respect, more than anything else, the long lasting relationships
that I have come to enjoy as a result of my interest in this wonderful hobby.
I may, without giving it a lot of thought, sell or trade one of my prized
collectibles but my friends are there for the long run.
