LARRY CLAPPERTON PICTURE FOR CATALOGUE & WEBSITE.jpg

In my last year of high school I bought my first Model ‘A’ Ford, which led me to collecting. I started going to flea markets in order to restore the car. That was over forty years ago.

It seemed, at the time, that a lot of antique car guys were collecting oil and gas memorabilia. My collection and interest started to grow and I soon realized I would need to specialize, as there was so much out there. I didn’t necessarily have a connection to Red Indian when I chose it, maybe because it was colorful and graphic. Whatever the reason I think it was the right choice.

One of the most interesting pieces I have found through the years was a Red Indian head in the original crate. But likely my most cherished piece is the Red Indian flange.

Perhaps the best part of this has been meeting so many great people and forging friendships while beating the bushes searching each item. I feel lucky to have spent so much time with my brother in law Jack Welton and buddy Norm Playter and am thankful for their help over the years with my collection. It is so different these days with most of the collecting being done via computer.

We have always displayed most of the collection in our home and therefore unfortunately some had to remain in boxes. I had hoped that one day it would be displayed in a place of it’s own.

It is now time for someone else to enjoy this collection as much as we have.
