I like to make discarded things functional again, repurpose in another form, not sure if it's a hobby because it usually concerns accidental finds. Since there are some car (restore) enthusiasts around you might find this one interesting, not sure of how many of these are still around in Britain.
One day a found a Chrome Grill from a 1950's Austin a40 Summerset, I had to repaint and restore the batch/Logo back to its original state. The day i found it was dirt black and the batch was there but the logo/paint was gone. Didn't know what to do with it so i turned it into a light shade hanging to the wall. Except the Chrome, the grill still is in pretty good condition, no cracks and all parts are there.

So i have some real British heritage hanging to my wall shining a light... No idea how or if it is rare?... On mainland Europe i've never seen a Austin Summerset driving around... There must have been at one point, how else could i find this laying in a barn.
Nice!Classic Car shows. This is mine, I enjoy every minute tinkering which you have too and taking my classic to shows.

Here is a little website I made showing a 3D interactive map of the nearest stars to the Sun. You can click the stars to move around the map.
Here is a photo I took of the moon recently:
