    Here's a rusty old ice cream freezer that I pulled out of a horse stable. It was used to store feed in, to keep the critters out. I took it apart, sand blasted & repainted it, put a drain in the bottom and now use it for a Beer cooler ! It took up too much space in my garage so it landed on the back porch.

  10. Dammit. How did I miss this for 3 yrs! If my wife will stop getting preggers, my house will look like this some day! Image a pretty cool living room but sold most of it for a damn boob job. I like the feel of them, but my shirts don't fit right anymore!

    Don't know if this totally qualifies, but here is a fake engine I built out of parts I had laying around the shop, to put into a trike I built, as I was using a rear engine, and the front of these trikes always look like they are missing something.........
    Surprising how many folks asked if that was a real Harley engine?? :eek:
