Signs, posters, diecast, pamphlets, artisan clutter: what VW stuff do you have around the house?

All that and stuff I paint. I did a bunch of VW hubcaps, sold all but one.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

I've got Mummified Ferdinand in a nice glass case in the parlor
"brakes the ice at parties"
EDIT "breaks" man was I tired yesterday...
It's weird to see Hitler and beetles together...they seem like such happy little cars, and then, well, ol' Adolf....you know.

I've found the same to be true with pics of Hitler and VWs. Helps get rid of houseguests too!

Have some pics of a few of my scale model stuff at http://calivw78.com/v/toys . The coolest one I think is by far the Lesney Matchbox. Other than that, I've got quite a few old owners manuals, one from '57. Also a few of the old large print time magazine vw ad's. Have one that I 'believe' is the first year for a vw bus add in Time magazine...also from the 50's. Lot's of books, the Hanes lunchbox and glass with cutaway view of the bay window.
Peace, Troy
