If you're ever in the Nebraska panhandle you gotta see this. Doubt if this Model AA could pull this if it were full though. smile It makes a beautiful sight though.

Tom saved this tank wagon from the crusher by a few minutes. The loader grapple fork had already put a couple holes in it and started to lift it up on to the heap of other scrap iron. :shock:

This is addressed to Tom Cozad, the owner of one of the greatest collections I have ever seen.

I am almost 77 years old, I have been picking since I was 24 (when I found a 1916 Harley Davidson in a ladies basement, and that was just after I had purchased a 1930 Studebaker Roadester). My contributation to this hobby has been that I have written a few books. My problem also in my life is that I have had to sell everything after I found them to pay for things like a semester in college, etc. I was able to graduate from College (with a wife and three kids), but it was a slow start from that time to accumulate what you have. I have always had a few nice things, but most of the things I have been able to find are now in the collections of others.
So, what I am asking is that if my wife, Cindy and I were able to come up your way, would you allow us to see what you have accumulated?

Jack, I emailed you his phone number and mailing address. I think if you would give him several days notice, you could take a tour. I'd also like to meet youif you get up this way.
As Dick mentioned I could have and should have taken more pics, which don't do it justice.

So do you have to have a invitation to see the collection or is it open to the public?

I would say if Tom is around and has time at the moment he would let you see it. He lives right there but travels to put up signs for companies all over a large area. The Sugar Valley Rally has ended its antique car rally here the last several years and is open to the public on the first weekend in June. Tom, pictured on the Coke Cushman, started out making decals for truck doors many years ago, is a very hard working, creative, humble, nice fellow and would be very happy to have you come for a visit if it works with his schedule. He is constantly restoring pumps, cars, adding Coke stuff. Give him a call when you know you'll be in the area.

Tom doesn't have enough Hair to justify having his own Barber Shop!

That is so way way cool! Just showed my wife the diner and she absolutely loves it, and so do I. Thank you for sharing those pictures. I especially love the tanker and everything with it.

Five Stars!

Just heard that Tom had a fire Sunday Morning. He lost the majority of his Coca-Cola collection. Really hate to see this happen to such a nice guy. He is always willing to show anybody his wonderful displays.

Thanks rvanpelt for posting.

I was sorry to hear and read this, but knowing Tom and his wife I immediately gave Tom a call to let him know that I was very sorry to hear the news, and glad that he and his wife were rescued with no injuries.

Very sad to say the least, but as Tom stated..."those collectables are replaceable".....
