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

There comes a time in life when you have to let go of all the pointless drama & the people who create it & surround yourself with people who make you laugh.  It's not worth the time to be all consumed by such trivial matters that for some is a need, and a way of life.

You know who you are ......

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.
