I thought for sure I'd get one, but he traded it to a neighbor for 4th of July fireworks. For years it was on my dad's dresser and no amount of cajoling or begging would make him part with it.

Then one day out of the blue, after I'd been married for years, he gave it to me. I was shocked and thought maybe he knew he wasn't going to be around or something. But no, he decided that I'd waited long enuf. But fireworks, seriously???

As an aside, never had the sideways pictures until today. But when clicked on should have correct orientation.
Beautiful old models from a great era! Thx for sharing. Like the old Heineken bottle aswell BTW
