Default Volksrods Side Emblem Auction and 'Toon Rendering
Re:: to benefit Volksrods.com   

Ok boys and girls, here is your chance to own a truly unique piece for your volksrod.

Some of you will remember when I did the hood ornaments back in 2012, I had two pairs of single sided, left and right emblems cast in aluminum from the original mismatched patterns for the hood ornaments.





There are only two (2) pairs in existence and the patterns did not survive so no more will ever be made. I was planning on using one set for the Sled and saving the second set for the Track V Volksrod when I get to it.

I have decided not to use a set on the Sled (I am keeping one set for the Track V).....so one of you has the chance to own it and help support Volksrods.com in the process.

Here is the deal. Place your bid in this thread. High bidder as of 11:59PM EST - Sunday, March 2nd wins a matched set of left and right side emblems!

All proceeds go to Steve to keep the doors of this place open. Winner sends the money to Steve and I ship the side emblems to them!

Bid high...bid often.

I'll start out with $20. Hopefully, for my bank account, It doesn't end like the last piece of Volksrod history I bid on

I will post a few more pictures this evening along with something to give it some scale.

FYI, these are the same size as the Volksrods Hood Ornaments.

These are also just the rough casting with the flash removed. You can decided how much finishing you want to do.

You will also have to figure out how to attach them to your Volksrod. They are thick enough to be able to drill and tap the backside for a couple of small mounting studs. Alternatively, you could use the double-sided trim tape that they use for attaching trim to modern cars.

Thanks for helping keep this place open. Bid high...bid often.

$100 already. This is great! Keep it going....remember all the proceeds are going to Steve to keep the doors of our little internet home open.

Here are some more pictures of what you are all bidding on...











Solid aluminum. Can be polished, powdercoated, chromed, left raw...whatever you like.

Sad thing is, I'm about ready to run out of ammo. Well, unless I rob a bank, or find a wallet I haven't used in years that still has money in it.

Alright....let's sweeten this deal a little...

If the bid gets over $200, I will 'toon the winning bidder's volksrod (real or imagined) with the side emblem on it.

That's right folks! Not only will you get a uber rare (1 of 2) set of emblems for your volksrod, you will get a one of a kind cartoon rendering of your volksrod. That alone is a $250 value.

Let's keep this going!
