AURORA CLASSIC II CLOCK

So last week I think I found the coolest thing I've ever found at a thrift store.
It's an Aurora Clock.
When I found it it wasn't working.  It was just a big piece of metal but it looked so cool I had to buy it.
I read the bottom and it said to "set time" and figured out it was a clock.  I thought it was a light at first.
All metal body.  Super heavy.  I fiddled with the lights and it worked when I got home.
Now how it looks when it's working.  It's a couple of layers of polarizing film that rotate and with the white light behind it, they change colors as it spins.  Very psychedelic..  They've been making these clocks on and off for the last 40 years.
in about 20 seconds it changed slowly to this.
Really this is the coolest thing I've found.   I think I'm going to keep it as it just too cool.   It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

BROOKS RUNNING / TENNIS SHOES 1980'S

Today it's a cool pair of Brooks Vintage Shoes from the 1980's.
I like these since they're really not a brand most people collect, like a nike or adidas.
Looks never to have been worn even.  I wish I had the box too.
Too small for my feet, but still cool.
I miss the simple tennis shoes of the 80's.  
I like vintage tennis/running shoes of the 70's and 80's.   It's Vintage Gear for Guys!
