    Cool--I would have never guessed someone collecting outboard motors.
    My grandfather had an old Sea Horse.

    I was addicted to the "Hokey-Pokey" but I've turned
    myself around.

    Nice bike Greg.........!


    Another casual interest of mine I can see turning quickly into another hobby.
    These are the four outboard motors I currently own. The red Johnson
    Sea Horse is a 1957 model.
    Nice Steve, this could only come from an old fisherman living close to a lake!
    Do they take up much room?

    Indeed Ralph - the '57 originally belonged to a friends father and they ran
    a family restaurant/marina until about 10 or 12 years ago.

    And yes, LOL, they can take up quite a bit of room if you do not have
    stands, or use only one stand per motor. Some outboard collectors
    place several motors ( 4 or 5 ) side-by-side across a sawhorse
    plank - You need a large, uncluttered garage or shed.........!

    LOL - these are all for my 12' boat as well !

    Some collectors don't care if they run or not, usually, and they pick them up
    reasonably cheap - even the older types from the 1920's or 1930's can go
    for $35 up to $100 - though a fisherman will usually pay more
    for a good running motor.

    Here is one I missed out on recently because I was really looking for a
    smaller 5.5HP. Below is an original 10HP in amazing condition from
    1958 ( it sold for only $275 ! ). It was made in Waukesha
    Wisconsin, USA. I think that year was the best ever
    for Johnson outboards - cosmetically speaking.

    Should have grabbed it......... !

    telephones still work and are usable today.........!

    stuka f. Wow, thought you meant some old(ish) black bakelite telephone (bet you have those too ;-)), but that first one is simply a work of art. What a beautiful thing. Amazing, that this was once a common configuration.
