Underneath an old timer.

This is the bottom of a new Cushman motor scooter that has been sitting in a crate since 1947. Maybe 0 miles, is better than calling it new. It's 59 years old, as I sit here posting this picture. Somehow, probably as a dealership closed, it got shuffled aside and was discovered in storage by a collector.

It's the kind of thing collectors dream about. Any unopened container that has been sitting that long is likely to contain some kind of treasure. I haven't found mine yet, but I'll keep looking.
