Holy Crap! That sure looks like the one (off the top of my head with out having the pic in front of me) that was in Trader Dicks. I'll look into this a little later and compare em'.

Well, Paul Hupp bought it, off course! ...who is Paul Hupp? Dunno.

Ben, maybe it could be from Harvey;s in Lake Tahoe? I've seen this style at Oceanic Arts, too, Leroy would probably know...

That does have the likeness of a Leroy tiki from Oceanic Arts. Check out the similarities in the tikis below. The side views also resemble the ebay tiki and if I had a digital camera, I'd show you. -Weird Unc

It's not the one but it's pretty darn close. It was either Traders Dicks or later across the street at the Nugget. I will be finding out all the missing links by the end of Feb., after the Hedley reunion. Man I got to get a new computer! And, learn how to post pics!
