    Also propellers. I've carved then for toys, very satisfying simplicity and elegance

    Thanks! I rode to Woodstock in a red Scout. Since then, SUVs have gone nowhere but downhill.

    I inherited one of these. It's about seventy years old and highly relicked.

    No
    Not if you don't know what your doing;) , and just for static models. You shape a blank then carve away, the shape tells you what to do.

    I cheated on this one, just bent and shaped some brass sheet.

    these are scratch built from steel cans, ideally Wittekerke steel beer cans, thin flexible, metal.

    That’s a MIJ Offset Telecaster, 25.5 inch scale length. Mahogany body, fat-U mahogany neck with a rosewood fingerboard. Many are boat anchors, up to 9 or 10 lbs but I found a light one that weighs about 7 and a half. They were a limited edition, but apparently they made a second run. A double P90 version (the one I’d get in hindsight) is also available in Japan, with 3 additional colors.

    And the Noguchi coffee table, and the Eames shell chair, and the Eames lounge chair!

    The diamond-shaped bicycle frame is at least 120 years old, and still very much in use. Timeless.

    I'm surprised by peoples concept of TIMELESS, so many things posted here seem ephemeral to me. Maybe epoch defining or modern in their time. I find most of the cars look like oldtimers very much bound to an era.

    I used to work in the building on the left. It was the Home office of Insurance Company of North America. It was a classic building full of Italian marble, the main floor elevator doors were cast brass with eagles on them. It's condo's now.

    Fair enough, but most of these pics are in the same vein as the OP. Maybe the thread title is the thing that's 'wrong'.


    Oh, and that snowball is gonna last what, five minutes? Tops? Just sayin... :twisted:

    I had a Bronco II and I wouldn't say it was timeless, in fact it was quite dated. But, as the saying goes, it could turn on a dime and give you back change. When I owned that, the world was my parking space. And. It. Just. Ran.

    My vote for timeless:

    The players change, the game changes, the bats and gloves change. But not the ball. It's got 108 stitches on it, same as the number of beads on a Rosary. Coincidence?
