Doctor Z and I stumbled upon this weathered tiki against someone's front porch while we were out garage-saling. The owner isn't selling, unfortunately.

I assume he's Witco but not 100% sure.

They don't wanna sell cuz their freakin AC would fall out of the window. Being a Hot Rod guy, I equate this to the guy with the old car being reclaimed by the earth who says he gonna restore it "someday". I suppose a midnight mercenary rescue would be out of the question, huh?

..i can hear the screeching of boutiki's tires as he peels away toward your house david, after seeing that tiki bar....lock your doors and unplug your phone !!


i never saw that style of witco bar and stools before.....very cool. i only hope that one day i can retire and waste my days away like you do trolling the flea markets and estate sales collecting all that witco !!....nice scores...

..of course by the time i retire there will no longer be any witco to find at estate sales or flea markets.....guess i have to win the lottery...only way to buy my way out of this slavery called employment!!

just for you TIPPSY ,the back story.
neighbor hood garage sale, wed. is for the early birds. driving by this place the guy looked like he may have some stuff so i stopped,...nothing.
leaving I tell his wife I'm here to pic up the mugs you stole from the KON-TIKI years ago.(my usual opening line/conversation starter) any way ,she says"no mugs ,but...... would you like a TIKI bar? it's heavy and has leopard skin on it,and 3 stools. I say ,"I don't know ,but lets take a look." all the while she keeps bringing out more and more Witco. made the deal,got it all.
I love America, think i'll stay!
insert 'BIG' smiley here

I'm so jealous. And I can't believe you're finding that stuff in Cleveland and not Cali. I can't even find a mug in Columbus.

I don't freakin' believe it! That bar is amazing! How did you maintain your composure? I think I would have peed myself & passed out in her driveway!
