    What's left of what you grew up with as child and was stamped or in any other way marked with 'Made in (your country), when it was still considered being of superior quality of being 'homemade'....
    How much of what you grew up with, is still owned by your country or in any other way similar, which hasn't been sold, outsourced outside your borders?
    Is there ANY pride in homemade products anymore, old OR new?

    And not when the only important thing seems to '£' or '$', and as much as possible, and to heck with quality, service, or anything else ....

    Wait, I'm confused. Do you want to see some old stuff, like toys from way back when? Or good old American build Fords?
