    Default Week of November 7th Contest Question

    Well it is my turn to take the reins for question of the week. Yes it is Election week so I will not bore you with an election choice question so just remember to get out and vote.

    So the question is as follows:

    What do you collect besides bills for your car/truck/bike/boat/etc? I am referring to a collection you may have in your home somewhere or garage. ie: diecast, hats, shirts, etc. Pictures of your collection will help.

    This weeks prizes are a Men's or Women's 303 Colorblock Jacket. Winners choice and size.

    I used to collect fantasy Knifes but hurricane Ivan in 2004 destroyed our home and these knifes sat in salt water for a couple weeks till we were allowed into our community. I salvaged some and cleaned off the rust as best I could but they are no longer nice enough to display as before. They are now part of the wall art in my garage. The fenders are different paint jobs I have done for my Harley. I used to just take pictures of the paint jobs but there again Ivan destroyed all of our pictures so I decided to just start keeping the front fenders.Click image for larger version.

    As most of you know I WAS Chevy, now I am Mopar so out with the Chevy stuff, in with the Mopar! When I changed brands, I told myself that I was NOT going to buy all the "stuff" like I did for Chevy because when I switched, I pretty much had to give my Chevy stuff away as it really didn't hold any value.

    BUT as I have continued on, I have found an item here, an item there to once again make my home MOPAR and of course vintage Harley.

    Of course my most expensive collection are my tattoos, since all of mine are car and bike related, with both my arms being my Panhead and my Knucklehead.

    I love art so I have tried to steer more towards bigger pieces, instead of the smaller things like I used to buy like the Hot Wheels and things like that.

    And there is some AMAZING art out there, I love this artist-Thom Sansoucie, of which I had the Corvettes and Camaro versions and now have added Mopar versions. I keep one of each up in my bedroom as a reminder of my first loves. Check out his website here- http://store.cruisingoods.net/artist...soucie/bw-ford

    Recently I have added 2 Mopar light switch covers, Mopar glasses (that I got free), Mopar coasters and a huge Mopar mug to the collection. Course I have my Mopar duffel bags, my Mopar license plates and I have picked up a few Hot Wheels in Challenger and Charger models.

    Keep them coming. At the end of this I will post you pics of my collection for you to decide if I am a bit obsessed or not. I will take some current pics because I keep adding to it. Always finding something new.
