@Impala9C1 I'm not sure. I've never seen a mini in use. I have seen a few photos of the full-size in use on cars. They are very fragile and not well made, which is why I think so few are left and likely why they didn't sell well

Very nice. Wish I had the space for more like that. Im going to have to kick a kid out and take his room. So how did you find all of that? You don't find those in your local junk shop.

It has taken an extreme amount of patience and perseverance in some cases. A couple pieces took a few years of poking at the people who owned them saying "hey I want that, don't forget I want it" and sending them photos of my collection so they knew I was serious. Others were lucky finds searching on craigslist and other online sales/auctions/etc.

For example, the New Tech Lightstorm that I recently sold (since I didn't need two) I had originally found at an antique store in North Carolina. They had a facebook page and posted photo overviews of their shop and I saw it in the photo. Called and asked if they still had it, arranged payment and shipping and it was mine.

I like your collection of speaker/lights. It looks like you've got all the major brands and models.
Thank you. There are a couple I would still like to find someday (Whelen 88 PA, Dietz's early light speaker combo, and the Whelen "vader light").
