Garage finds

Hello All

              I suspect there are lots of people like me who have things in garages/sheds etc that they have forgotten about let alone were they came from?

I was tiding a shelf up and found a few old coins so I soaked them in some thinners to clean them and found this from the days when garages used to give things with fuel!

When he bought this   very ancient ABC  car, the new owner was surprised to find a pair of handcuffs in the car.

Quite  a puzzle-  as was the curious bracket ahead of the gear change which seemed to serve no purpose - until  the reason for both became apparent.

Turned out it was not anything weird at all!

With no ignition switch (or any form of   security)  the two were used as a novel way of securing the gear lever (in say reverse ) and  immobilising  the car

I did find a very manky collection of sports socks under a carpet, once... plus a huge pile of leaves. I think it was once pot pourri... but whether to hide the odour of socks, or not, I never found out...  maybe they were having pre-marital socks in the rear seat?
