I picked this up at a garage sale this weekend...



I've been looking for one of these dark blue/silver Plano boxes for a while.
I picked it up for ten bucks, full of phone, cable, computer and fixture parts.
I cleared it out, cleaned it up, and it will now be my main box.





All my tools will be in this box and will be the only box I need for series racing.




The top will hold my controllers and large tools.



The bottom drawers will house my race cars and parts.



Sorry about the long post, but I've been wanting this particular box for ten years or so.
I'm so happy about this I could scream...... but the baby is asleep...

Can't beat the Plano boxes! Been totting my cars in the same one for years now. They're durable and like yours, they hold all my stuff! Your's looks way better than mine though. You need some milage on that one and all the stories that come with it.:thumbsup:

Nice setup for travel,
-Paul

Thanks guys!!!

I've been a Petty fan since I was a kid, and had these decals long before I knew about HobbyTalk.

I have a few more of these boxes with some mileage on them.



The brown/tan ones were my first ones. The big green one was my latest.
I never decaled it. It's a great big box, but I never liked it for some reason.

More boxes please...

I picked this one up off craigslist this week... $20, never used.



I added the NHRA decal because I'm dedicating this box to my drag racers...






Thanks to whoever made this... (I got it from honda)


Gonna find a good chassis for this one...

Another one...

Got this one a couple of weeks back.



$10 on craigslist. Never used, but sat in a garage forever.
It's old looking, dusty, looks brittle, like if you look at it wrong it will break.

That's why it's gonna be my Tjet box, cause they remind me of each other.





Maybe I can find some old aurora decals? Autoworld?

Any boxes out there???
