    I used to love watching that show .

    Here are some of mine, though these photos are at least 10 years old now. I have them in a box somewhere in storage, I need to look for them. I never had too much luck finding old cans, I picked most of these up at garage sales.

    Beat me to it. Came out good. Never would have thought years ago when this thread was started that we would take it this far.

    Had my first experience with a leaky can today. Perfectly clean, no rust, just a pinhole that ruined two books and a paper label derusto beside it. Damn you, scotty.

    I usually come across old paint from the 90's. I have some rustoes from the 90's, american accent, krylon and a growco from 96'. I like to collect what is relevant to myself, stuff that I used when I first started. Cap Matches Color made a good point on a recent photo I posted: to use the paint, save the empty and the memories. So thats what I am going to do, use up all the old paint and save the can to go along with the flick of the work I produce.

    I've been hitting it hard, have some great stuff from the last month.

    Found out recently that my local recycling center offers free paint that has been dropped off. I talked to the supervisor and he said they normally throw old stuff out, but if I can come back in the next couple weeks a few times to check in they can probably set some of it aside for me.

    That said there were a couple old Rusto's (early 80s) and some old Paintomatic paper labels on the free shelf, and an Acme pint.

    It might be worth checking in at your local recycling centers for that.
    Also a good source for graff n dance paint as I grabbed about a dozen full cans of rusto and American accents and painters touch stuff.

    The split color cap is one of my favorite cans I've seen. Raised lettering for the Nu-Tile Epoxy, 1964. IMGP1276.JPG
    I don't think the Raabe cap is correct, but still a happy find on those. The can on the left has its color hand written on the front.
    Definitely bummed about the electrical tape over the Tempo label.IMGP1277.JPG
    I don't know the age of these, but I find it hilarious that "Midget" was totally okay at some point.IMGP1278.JPG IMGP1279.JPG
    The Plastikote is 1961. I believe the Turtlewax CARUST is 1974. Believe the K-marts are 84.
    IMGP1280.JPG
    Anyone know when the TuffnEasy's are from?IMGP1281.JPG
    Stoked on the Sparvar. Unfortunately the plastic cap has a slight crack in it.IMGP1282.JPG IMGP1283.JPG


    These are my last couple month's stuff. Lots of junk, but a few gems in there.

    Always open for sale and trades, too.
