At what age does something become collectable/vintage, a museum piece if you will? Very Happy Wink

I work in a museum (I may be opening myself to further abuse with that admission) and I've bought things brand new before to add to the collection - it's known as contemporary collecting. As long as something fits in with your collecting policy, its age is pretty irrelevant.

That sounds like cheating to me.

Under those rules, my local branch of Dixons could be a museum if the collection was 'contemporary appliances'. Laughing

Well, Dixons is not preserving their 'appliances' for future generations - they want to offload them as quickly as possible! Laughing Museums have very strict rules about how they can dispose of objects once they've been accessioned into the permanent collection.

Um.....

My compass must be off. I landed in the wrong forum. I thought this was a helicopter forum.
Picasso anyone?

You need to move your GPS away from it a bit AB.

Picasso is a model of car here.... didn't he write some good music too?

Um......I thought he was a copter pilot who flew North Sea.
Music? I think the only music he played was on the radio.

Jen,

Wikipedia wrote:
Hangar rash is an aviation term that refers to minor incidents involving damage to aircraft that typically originate due to improper ground handling in and around a hangar, other aircraft or objects on the ground. Such aircraft are typically considered as good as new once replaced or re-skinned.

That is SO open to misinterpretation..

Once replaced - like with a new machine?
It's like a prang in the car though - that looks good once the body shop have had their way with it, until you park under sodium lights and can see the two-tone effect!

I think I can safely take my coat off again here.

Running costs and reliability; I bet the previous owner could tell us a thing or two about that... Probably crippling.

Trouble with these old bags of nails from the mid-70s is that they slap on a fresh coat of paint and it can cover up all sorts of age-related damage and hangar rash. Could well be completely shagged out, although the photo looks nice in this instance.

Very funny! And the only thing Jen commented on was the Hangar Rash. What can we infer from that? Laughing

Perhaps we can infer that I was refusing to rise to the bait. Don’t push me though, buster… Twisted Evil
