Unreal.
I just saw on the news, that $2 million worth of toys was stolen from
the Toronto Salvation Army warehouse.

Who does that kinda thing?

Santa, because he's running out of Elfs?

Don't be surprised if they show up at your place for temporary storage. :bigrofl: That Elf may have mystical powers!

Elf's may well have mystical powers.
I have pretty much searched the net every day looking for parts and attachments for my Elf since I got it home.
Recently I found a listing for a pair of rear wheel weights, which is one of the things I was looking for, Google translate converted the main text in the listing to say that the seller was going to Slaughter his MF11 and all parts were available.
So after laughing at the image in my mind of someone taking an axe to a GT, I enquired as I was also after a bonnet , The seller said yes I have a bonnet and will send you some photo's.
Well this led to several more emails and photo's and well to cut a long story short I bought a whole Leprechaun :D :D :D

Green Elf front full small.jpg Green Elf front half small.jpg Green Elf front small.jpg
Green Elf Left side small.jpg Green Elf rear small.jpg Green Elf Right Side small.jpg

Will says I'm as crazy as he is! The wife confirms this
I Say the Elf made me do it, thats my story and I'm sticking to it!

Ah, well, so you did get it. Congrats.
John and I talked about this one a bit before he pulled the trigger.

One thing I gotta say, is PLEASE throw some paint on it ASAP. :smilewink:

So, between the 2 of us, we've got 3 Elfs. How many are needed to start up a
workshop?

Congrats GAV, that's a pretty complete lookin unit, are you still going to use it for parts, or is it the new project?

To me it looked to good to slaughter thats why I bought it. But you guys have seen as much as I have and All I know is its not seized. I will make the decision in a week or so when I see it for real.John
