Rock Auto Collector Magnets

Anyone else have a collection of Rock Auto's Collector Car Magnets on their garage fridge (the one with the BEER inside) or tool cabinet?

I do.


So when they asked for picture submissions I sent 'em one of mine:


Name:  RA Magnet cropped.jpg

They accepted my picture! Now, it's a Magnetic Memorial to Lotus.

They were kind enough to give me plenty of extras too.


So, I'll have some at LOG 37 to give away.

PS: I didn't lie, the alternator and Vacuum Pump in my car came from Rock Auto.

LOL, For you Dean, of course!

I want 25% of whatever you get for the autographed magnets on eBay!

Congrats! I hope I get one of these in a future order. RockAuto had my old Miata (I think it was like Series 108?) a few years ago and I was pumped to have my own car alongside the pile of others I had collected. I haven't bought any Elise parts from them yet, but I've been ordering through them for years now.

Same here, I have some on my tool box and refrigerator. I like the Esprit shirt Atwell, where did you have it made?

The Esprit shirt came custom-made from a car-show vendor more than 10 years ago (it was a birthday gift from Mrs. Wingless, AKA Lady Patricia).

Cool Atwell,

Sorry to revive this 2 years old thread...

If you also have some duplicates, let me know and we can trade some!

I have these available : all between 2 and 30 (except #5), 47, 62, 110, 133, 144, 162, 185.

Let me know!

Philippe
