"Has collected more than 140 beer cans" So, I wonder who got the call on that collection?

I dump cans and cars, if you find old cars & trucks while dumping, please let me know.

I used to carry my newspaper carrier/sling and detector scatter dumping the roadsides and woods near my house in the late 70s. I had theorys about how much farther older cans would fly from a car than the newer aluminum cans and what rocks would stop them. Found 30s 40s and 50s cans that way b4 I had the detector. The paper boy bag was nice for toting my rusty treasures. That story brings back memories.

10th grade? He looks 30 years old in that picture. I had a buddy in high school when we were seniors and he had a real hairy chest. Since the drinking age was 18 in FL at the time and we were all 17, we always sent him in to buy beer. He would unbutton his shirt to just above the navel and go in to buy Magnum or Mickey's Malt Liquor. He was successful 90% of the time. Ahh youth...
