eBay, flea markets, estate sales. Estate sales are good hunting grounds for oddball stuff like that. I cleaned out one when I used to live in Michigan for all sorts of old 60's food packages, containers, and any sort of general stuff for when I get my westy one day.

Our kids rode in car seats like that (as did I ).
If you tried that today, the little tyke would be DEAD within the first two miles.
God, I must have hated my kids ( and my parents, me). Embarassed

Since he started the thread 9 years ago, he may not be monitoring this topic daily anymore. Maybe PM him?
