    On my second visit to San Diego, in 1968 I think, I checked out my roster and visited Marvin Sudebaker. He was geavily into Stuebaker and other cars, and his wife collected clothing of the vintage of the various cars.
    They also collected kitchen implements and had ones of the sutable size hanging from the area where the wall and celing met on their enclosed porch.
    The got harder to indentify as one moved away from the interior door, moving CCW. I got maybe 10% of the way around the porch.

    Marvin, career Navy, was gone by the time I moved here.
    I sure wish that I had visited them during my visits to my family pther times. Great folks.

    I just picked up one of those at the auction on Saturday along with three old pump style oil cans and a 1 quart squirt can that you pressurize. All for the princely sum of $1.00.

    Eevery body seems to be avoiding the item on the left. It looks to me to be an omelet pan. I wish I had one.

    I respectfully disagree with you on the skinny spout, StudeBob.

    That was used to puncture and dispense a can of STP Gasoline Treatment into the customer's tank before a fillup. [^]

    Believe me, when you work in one of the wealthier Indianapolis suburbs in the mid-1960s, all those Doctors and Lawyers pulling in for a tank of Super Shell in their Cadillacs, Buicks, and an occasional playboy-oriented 421 2+2 Catalina convertible, [u]need</u> STP Gasoline Treatment! [:0] ....Especially when the sale nets you a 10% commission that will help you put $5 worth of Super Shell in your own Tahiti Coral '59 Lark V-8 Power Pack Hardtop waiting on the corner of the lot to take you home when the station closes at 10PM on a hot summer's night!

    Just the other day, a neighbor that's moving away asked me if I wanted some cans of oil he had in his barn. Sure! Anything for free! So now I can once again use some of MY oil spouts I havfe lying about.
    Truth is, I've got other oil dospensing devices as well and one of them I still have occassion to use. It's a quart bottle with a spout that screws on after you fill the bottle with oil. Having bought some of the 5-quart plastic jugs of oil, I use the jar to dispense a quart or half quart as necessary.

    Just yesterday I sold a swingspout oilcan on ebay. This type you'd fill with oil from a shop pump/resevoir and then carry it to the car. Once over the engine, you swing the spout downward and let the oil flow into the engine. I paid a buck for it at a garage sale and got Five and change on ebay.

    BTW, no one mentioned that the skinny spout's for tranny fluid![^]

    Sorry, my Grandmum was the one that used the ciggy collector. As for the spouts, I have one myself, somewhere. Oh, and bedwarmers? They have a handle about two feet long on them. Sometimes the brick holder would detach. Most of them were stationary though.
