    This was one of my earlier curb discoveries. It is not a particularly valuable trunk, but its size and shape lends itself well as a living room end table. Much of the wear on the wood is from 18 years of boys toys being scrapped along its surface. (sort of the Velvetten Rabbit of trunks). I have always enjoyed this one for its colour and texture. I am having a happy anniversary -- this is the 25th trunk I have posted!

      I missed that -- now I will have to wait for a gold one on my fiftieth. (at this rate it will not be far away) Thanks eye4alotofnicestuff.

      It takes me 3.8 seconds to load a trunk into my car, put it in first and take off. I am the "phantom of the curb". Just don't turn you back to me in the presence of your trunk, particularly within 100ft of the road -- fair game territory!

      I think I have over-exposed -- now it is trunk fatigue.
    4. trunkman trunkman, 9 years ago
      Well, yes, but that would require extra effort, and, well, you know, energy being what it is and all, I guess I'll weather the storm and take my likes and loves as they come, -- or not... I am having such fun being a part of this forum it hardly matters.
      Thanks eye4beauty -- loves and likes back at ya!

      You have a tremendous collection of trunks.
      Each with a differen personality. They are very beautiful.
      I really like.

      No, I love it too. I don't think there is such as a thing as Trunk overdose! I love the image on it too - fabulous trunkman!! Mine is still locked and taunting me.
