Eastwood’s “Caption This” Contest!

********* Congrats to the Winner: Halton H with his caption: “Five gallons of gas, a match, and a tire, and that engine will burn rubber!”*********

Recently J.R. was excited to tell us that he had a crate engine for his Project Debris-Capri on the way. When it showed up, we were all a bit surprised at what we found when opening the crate. Post up your best caption with what our first impressions were of his crate engine. Don’t forget to include your email address with your entry so we can contact you when you win!

The person with the best caption (as picked by Eastwood), will win a FREE Skil Cordless Toolset!

    SENIOR J.R.
    I am Jose and my brother told me that you need lots of help with your PROJECT DABRIS-CAPRI. I can see it now, with a fine tuck-n-roll interior. It will be as cool as ICE man(did I say that?).
    We take cash only, not like SENIOR EASTWOOD that wanted to pay us in some sort of money that is called ”EASTWOOD BUCKS”.

    THIS STUFF IS STARTING SMELL A LITTLE FISHY !!
    IS THE CONTEST OVER YET?
    FROM THE SMELL OF IT, I THINK WE WERE SENT AMC MARLIN PARTS INSTEAD OF CAPRI.
    THE WINNER OF THE CONTEST MUST PAY ALL TAXES AND FEES ASSOCIATED WITH DISPOSING OF THIS CRATE AND IT’S SMELLY CONTENTS. IT SHOULD COME TO A TOTAL OF ABOUT $275. AND WE DO NOT TAKE EASTWOOD BUCKS. Thanks, J.R.
