    I may have a HORDING problem...but when I saw these...
    I'm thinking fuel tanks or a guy could sliceing them in half & mounting them along the side of a pick-up bed....maybe mount some Caddy tail cones at the ends for brakelights.... Thoughts?? Am I crazy to be drawn to this type stuff?

    i would say leave them like the first pick and put a glass top and use it as a table or two seperate pieces and you have a set of end tables

    Fill one with sand, and put it at the door of your garage, if anyone smokes. Or the glass top end tables idea.
    REPEAT AFTER ME;
    THESE ARE NOT CAR PARTS!!!!!:D:p

    Definately nothing automotive. Planters, ash tray, table legs, all would be very cool.

    Make great planters or a table for someone into aeronautical theme. If you could find a front cone the could make a good hanging element in a garage or hanger.

    I like the patio furniture idea, weld on a metal ring for foot rests, paint 'em black, then add clear lexan tops, surrounded by a couple of your high-back bar stools in your photos. The only thing you'll need after that is Fred's aviatar sitting across the table from ya with a couple frosty mugs of beer and your set. Damn....my blood pressure just shot up a bit.;)
     
  22. If your even thinking of doing anything automotive with these........ you may be a REDNECK.

    Weld em right to the top of your car, like they were duds dropped on you from high above....it will give the bullet hole sticker crowd a shock and awe conniption.








    or, planters...
