Like Bling ? Scorpion Make A Wish Sled is 100% complete
« on: January 08, 2013, 03:51:49 AM »
I've had a number of people say they can't find the post on it.  The only place we could get it pinned on this site is in the Restorations section.  Here is the link to full post.

Go here to see official post with all the assembled photo's.   http://vintagesleds.com/bs/index.php/topic,68306.msg860721.html#msg860721

A couple of teasers

Holy "polish" job ... Ramblin Ray will be impressed.

And ... Indy likes pics.
I hate it when people see me at the supermarket and they are like "hey, what are you doing here?"  And I'm like ....... oh, you know ...... just hunting elephants.



Most people will never get to meet their favorite players.   I'm raising mine.

That would be really cool.  Jack and I are headed back to Tom and Roger's tomorrow for some finish work.  Little more "polishing" on the hood and the ski's have been final polished.  I'll post more pics in the main thread tomorrow night.

Can you buy chances or is this a auction?

This is an auction, not a raffle.  I need to get the admin to update that on the main page.
