Default Puke Catcher...



A recent post on the H.A.M.B. got me thinking... Radiator overflow cans are one of those details on a car that you can have some fun with. Some folks keep it simple and functional while others ...

Man,

I was just on Ebay last night looking at old canteens for this reason!

I have been watching The War on PBS, and it got me in the mood I guess!

I was looking at those as overflow tanks, here at the local Army surplus store, they are only 5 bucks each, look great, but are a little big in my opinion.

If they're blue, you don't need to be spooked...unless someone other than the Army painted them blue!
Standard military usage to mark inert training-aid ordnance...

I'm thinking about using a gas tank from a Whizzer for a catch-can.

Ryan I thought our beehive aluminum tank would make a nice cross over to mount on the firewall.

I run one of those 24 oz. Heinekin keg cans.
It looks like a tiny moon tank.
It's got green on it to match the car.
I drank the $4 worth of beer out of it.

I bought a canteen off of ePay to use on my coupe- but when I got it it looked too nice to use for a catchcan. I kinda felt disrespectful.

Kevin Lee's catchcan he built out of copper pipe for his old roadster is sweet.

I bought this WW1 US Army Canteen when I was about 12 and it's been kicking around in the attic for 55 years.
I just installed it as a radiator overflow tank on my Hemi powered 32 Roadster that I got on the road in July.

I got a "Flathead cola" glass bottle off of Ebay back when a search covered everything on Ebay. I learned a lot about the flathead Indian tribe and the Flathead mountains in Montana. I got a Flathead Ale tap for my shifter too.

I know glass wouldn't pass tech but if they made a Rocket cola bottle wouldn't you want it on your Olds powered hot rod?

I've got an antique embalming fluid bottle I dug up from an old cistern in the back yard. No picture of it , but I think it would be pretty cool. It's a plain square bottle with the words "embalming fluid" embossed on it.
