Hey Buzzy, since you're the king of coco joes, did any of those plaques or ashtrays originally come with that red or blue color? In my 20 years of collecting I've never seen one outside of ebay....

Part of me thinks it sucks that somebody is remaking them, part of me is mad that they aren't remaking the 2 plaques I've always wanted and never found..lol

Just my opinion,I could be wrong.




This is exactly what I was thinking as I saw some of the knock-offs. Why go to all the trouble when other Tiki, or non tiki collectables, are selling for much more money? I mean, doesn't anyone just fake autographs anymore

Those were originally advertised with some fancy "blue flame" title or something like that. I think Freddie has the info somewhere.
