...The Hemi blue one on the left I have had for many years. Dad helped me take it down from an old house that we were fixing up in Winter Haven, FL back around 1958 or so. Due to those memories, this particular 107 is priceless to me.

He owned that house (and one other behind it) as rental properties and during every summer vacation a day or two was spent working on them. I also remember getting a six-pack of Coke and keeping it somewhat cool in the tank of the toilet. Flush every so often to get fresh, cooler water in the tank, it worked quite well. Mother would have had a fit as she did not like me drinking too much soda.
