I WON I WON!! :)

01 March 2014 - 02:12 PM

Well, I git myself a nice little prize psckage from Australia the other day.
I limed, commented, and shared a Coiltek post on Facebook. Lo and behold, I won!
What'd I get?
An 18x12 coil, control box cover, t-shirt, hat, and stubby holder (aka beer koozie)!

Yer dang right I'm excited! :)
Can't wait to get ta swingin that bad boy around and pimp my box with a new cover. Those Aussies sure are serious about keeping a drink cold. That koozie has twice the insulation of our US models!
The shirt is one size too small, but I'll still wear it, as it will frame my gut that much more nicely :)
And now I have a Coiltek hat without sweat rings to wear to those more formal occasions.

Headed to The Hammers next weekend...

Those that don't know, The Hammers is the Johnson Valley OHV Area between Yucca and Lucerne Valley in Commiefornia.
From my past reading, there is gold to be found in the northern areas of the place, and there was an active claim in there last time I looked.
While I am going for race car testing and tuning, I think I'll take along my ML and swing it over some not-often hit hillsides and washes while there. I shoukd be abke to cover some good ground by pushing the car between areas, no? 100mph in the desert goes by quick like :)

Keene 140

25 May 2013 - 09:56 PM

Got a friend in the club with a Keene 140 for sale. $800
Knowing them, it has been used a fair amount, but is in excellent shape and well maintained. I've seen them with it a time or two and they've put a goodly amount of gold in it, so it's seasoned just right.
They're on the west side of Phoenix, but visiting IL over the Memorial Day weekend.

1966 Washington quarter

09 March 2013 - 12:21 PM

So, walking around the other day I saw a somewhat corroded quarter on the ground. Turns out it's a 1966 quarter.
Looked it up and a couple numistmatic sites say that a poor condition can be worth a dollar. Really?
Have never been much of a collector, but this one has me intrigued.
