T-shirts would be GREAT!

A creative bumper sticker or windshield sticker. We don't have large windshields where a banner could go, but something like a web address would fit across the top. Maybe 1-1/2" x 18" to go between the rear down tubes on the main hoop.

Just thinking.................

Pbththt. He'd probably just spend it on fast horses and beautiful women.

Now get off my lawn, you pesky kids!

No, seriously, Dave. We love this forum and we know you and the other monitors put a lot of time, effort, and money into this forum to keep it going. We all get a lot out of it and it is only right that we all give back something to keep this forum going. So just give us a paypal address and take the money and let the kids play on the grass. It is better than smoking it!!!!!!!!!! Russ

My feeling is the best contribution possible is to find ways to attract more members and thereby more builders. Make this place popular until Hempy is bankrupted, then he'll take contributions and as a side benefit most people will be driving locosts...

Seriously, we needs more peoples...

Seriously? Like, literally, are you serious? Seriously serious?

Because I have something in mind that spends way better than dollars, but I don't have enough minions. Raise your hand if you're committed enough to meet up after midnight (or noon) and pitch in on some shenanigans.

So do we have someone on the forum that would be willing do some graphic design?? Maybe make some nice decals, shirts etc?? I am all for slapping that stuff on my car and/or wear it around

You can build the most awesome thing in the world but at some point, an 80yr old man in a crx is probably going kick your butt on the track... don't ask me how I know.

You guys are a trip! :lol:

I'm too far away to meet up for late night shenanigans, but I'm in if you do come up with a way to contribute.

I made calendars and donated the proceeds to my other home forum. Having your vehicle featured on a calendar is a good way to get people involved and interested. The Paypal Donation link works well too.

I'd buy a calendar with the Slotus in it and hang it on the wall! It would probably leak oil and ruin the wallpaper, but wot the 'ell, I'd still like lookin' at it! :mrgreen:

Ok, minions. Send me a PM and I'll start doling out assignments. But MUM'S THE WORD! Anyone who spills the beans gets a new avatar that YOU WILL NOT LIKE.

This is gonna be fun... :twisted:
