    I was having my cars moved to a storage lot (where people don't steal them) and saw this bomber oxygen bottle (B-29 I think) laying on the ground and asked the owner of the lot if he wanted to sell it.

    Using these things as gas tanks is probably considered "passe" nowadays but I couldn't resist grabbing it for $20. If nothing else, it'll make a good airtank right?

    Through the years I have found quite a few of them they are pretty cool but not B29 status.

  6. Nice find
    B17 or B24 most probably though.

    Well worth the $20

    The local aircraft dismantle wants $125 for those. Nice score, even though it is not from a B29.

    You know he's a real stoner when he spells bong wrong.
     
  9. Traditional hotrodding is about what used to be cool, not what's cool nowadays.

    Nice score, BTW. :)

    Yep. Cool. Always will be. I gave fourty for one this summer at a swap. Used one for gas tank in my dirt track stocker in '58.

    From many aircraft that had a 'low pressure O2 system" (400psi).

    its cool just cause of the history of where it came from, and what it did for the person it kept alive at 30,000 feet in the air! sweet score!
     
  14. He used the Olde English spelling-

    "Thus, I taketh a drag from mine own bonge"

    Nice score on the O2 bottle!

    Cool find, even if you don't use it on a car it will make a great wall hanger at that price.

    Neat to find an aircraft ox bottle for a no price.
