Cool Find: May 8-10
I was a happy hot rod hooligan after I found these 1965 Stanley Mouse Rat Fink, Weird-Oh style Hot Rod/Surf models. They're un-built, original, pristine in the boxes. These "Cool Find" updates aren't supposed to be very wordy (I'll sometimes upload right from my phone with little to no text) but I have to mention Stanley Mouse, and if you get a chance, check out his site over in departures. He's the psychedelic artist known for the iconic Skeleton and Roses Grateful Dead poster (I had a first run print about five years ago...sold it argggg!) and these models were meant to compete with the Roth "Fink" stuff. Pretty rare...pretty cool. There is a third I still need to complete the set.
