Got it in 1977, most of those decals are from about then.....

YUP!! Was a proud P.R.D.A. guy. And that kinda dates me and th' box. :jester: :cheers:


EDIT: That's a Professional Photographers of America one in there, too. Just right of Oscar's disk. Dated 1981.

Okay, I'll admit it. Don't know what P.R.D.A. is. I googled it and got this: www.prdaracing.com

Weird, my much earlier post evaporated... I have the Snap On stickers NOS around here someplace packed away. My box is sorta similar, w/ Weber carb, and strangely Jaguar stickers on it, instead of Lotus. Hard to find good toolbox stickers anymore, as the "New" techs that spend 10K plus on a box are afraid to do anything with them. Their loss, a good toolbox can say a lot about it's owner before you even open a drawer.

Just left of the box there's a 1985 poster of dear Kathy King on rollerskates. Then the Weber DCOE "Carburatori", the one with the four stages of aspiration. And after that the Jesse Alexander book cover: "At Speed"...

...see Gary Zukav's: "Dancing Woo Li Masters" for good reference.

Inspiration for a thread here, thanks to Doc.... Tool Box Photos! Love the Team Lotus stickers Doc.

I'll take one of my tool box in the next day or so. Cheap Craftsman POS but there are some nifty motorcycle-related stickers on it.
