Today I went for a run, trying to maintain some sort of fitness level for the winter months. I changed the route a little for no good reason and here's what I spotted, sitting on the curb, next to the garbage! Imagine my horror!!
- I ran past,
- stopped and went back to inspect,
- rang the doorbell and asked the homeowner if I could pick her garbage (she must've thought the sweaty lady on her porch was KAH-RAZY!),
- lugged it 1/2 mile home right then and there; I wasn't going to take the chance of going home to get the car and it being gone by the time I got back!!
|It's heavy metal, and STURDY...|
|This is from some research on the web - same-ish sticker|
After a little research, I found this is made by the Cosco/Hamilton Manufacturing Corporation out of Columbus, Indiana, circa 50's. I like the red and white of it, but it does need a little scrub down. It's just so crazy what people will throw out! This was made to last - no flimsy metal on this baby.
What do you think I should do with it? Repaint...same colors or different? Just scrub it down and seal it, keeping the rust and crust? I do think I'm going to put it on casters as the holes are there on the bottom of the legs. I'm going to let it speak to me before anything to it.
Don't be hatin' cuz you didn't find it first...
