Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Well, the postings from Cabers never disappoints. A mixed bag of coolness and scoresville!!

I got a couple of Western Flyer X-53 fender lights ( one complete 2 tone blue and the chrome top for the other) from a couple of new Caber buddies. The bikes ( a 2 tone Blue ladies, a red and chrome boys) will be shipped soon to reunite with the lights. I had the lights pre-shipped so they don't get lost or damaged packed with the bikes coming soon.

The cast tops are like sandbag heavy! I fiddled around with my JC Higgins Colorflow batwing to adjust the level it sits ( actually tweaked the bracket on fender) but will keep it inside until the weather gets warmer. Speaking of sand bag heavy...with 4 batteries these Bat things are boat anchors! I knew that, had another one a colorflow before. I love them. Anyone has a spare original, let me know please.

I got a couple of Corvette tin cars from Ebay. Another very clean 10"- '68 Taiyo Japan battery op bump and go in a pleasant black and orange two tone with the box ( green and white image) and a really cool 8"- 1962 Bandai blue and white corvette. It was filthy and all the chrome was rusted. A dremel and wire brush cleaned that up, then soap, water, Turltle wax and windex/Q tips and it looks swell!! Nice interior details for a small car.

Also a large 14 1/2 " Cragstan/Tomiyama # 3 Firebird race car. I have another ( this one is #5) 7 inch open wheel Yonezawa/Tomy Japan ( an older repro from 2000) #75 coming from Ebay, but paired my #5 up with the HUGE vintage 1950's 18" Champion racer ( ok, I have 2 of those as well...lol..) for a picture. I got a nice 14 inch 1958 Buick ATC Japan tin car from a seller I've dealt with before, but I quickly noticed it's a repaint. We are trying to work it out. Trim is weathered, body and base are almost pristine ( a so/so repaint..but..) so it's a no brainer to me. Lots of other red flags, but I won't ramble.

Headlights so cool! Never saw them before with the mid 50’s Caddy styling

Finally riding a big boys bike
I got notten ta sho except the §#|++¥ weather. It’s 15F, 40 mph winds, -15 wind chill and a 60 mile stretch of highway into town is closed because of a two day blizzard. The water in my toilet is sloshing around so much that a flush is redundant, ha, ha. The 14 day long range forecast predicts one partly sunny day, the rest are cold, windy, snowy and rainy. I can’t work on bikes in this and can’t go out to find any.

Bummer. Sounds like here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We had a small handful of above freezing days, some melting, some sun, now back to subzero with snow and rain on Tuesday. Still mountains of snow to melt, then deal with the sand and potholes another 2 months. Yikes!! No mosquitoes though and I haven't seen a rattler or a gator!

Maybe you could use the Hawthorne speedo I have for sale on the Cabe for the boys bike?
