I think my dad rocks!

My dad has a thing for old stuff: Old cars, Old movies, Old toys.

And really cool old strollers like this Taylor Tot.


"Please, pardon my little mohawk."


He restored this one four years ago. He loves to take it to car shows. People there to love old cars were treated to the sight of this old toy. He received many compliments and heard many times 'Oh, I remember those' or 'I had one of those when I was little'.


Not to mention that his most beautiful grand-daughter was the passenger. I'm just saying.

He sent me pictures of his latest project yesterday.

Before


After


I love it! It looks perfect. Really, dad, great job!!

My dad has a talent for restoring things. He has a patience for it, and he really pays attention to the details.

You'd be lucky to have one of these...and I know just who can make it beautiful for you!!

Dad, you rock!

My dad is a wood-worker as a hobby and has restored many a piece of furniture and I always think his work is wonderful too. Here's to the talents of our Daddies! : )

You are lucky to have a dad with this kind of talent. I always see these kinds of things at flea markets and junk shops and wish I could get one and make it pretty again. I love those old strollers -- they have so much character.
