Is this contraption more reliable than a certain trailer that sat at my house for 2 weeks in Venice when I lived in Miami? :D

Update: Jeff Searle has obtained the PALMSCRAPERTRANSPORTATION DEVICE on his recent trip to California. wacko.gif

Rumor is that it will be donated to Ripley's Believe it or Not in Key West. blink.gif

Just like the Gaylord car. In the beginning there was only one. It was a hit success, then it was reused to make the second model. It took some time before a second car. Then stopped before 3 I think.

Do your research. :)

(Ed was a customer of mine before he passed away. We became friends when I knew what they had made before he said anything)

The Gaylord?? It looks like a cross between a Rolls Royce and the Batmobile.

I swear if I lived closer I'd come pick it up. Paint it vibrant pink and display it as yard art. :)

Yard art?

Yep - for the Art Basel crowd. I'd rejuvenate it with a hot pink enamel paint. Then highlight it at night with some LED lighting.

I decided to stop at the Kona brewery on the big island to wet the whistle between palm PRA's that day.

I saw the lipstick palms in the planter behind my table and thought taking a picture with a pint of liquid aloha was a no brainier.:D

This is a great thread Rafael:greenthumb:

Cheers!
