I met a guy recently who had one of those old school metal coolers, painted steel. I think it was Coleman. We had a green and white one growing up. Anyway he had put stickers all over it from places he had been or various fishing gear he uses.

The cooler we have now has wheels on it. Idiotic. Slides all over the back of the truck of course. I want to start my own old school style metal cooler and put stickers on it. But I can't find one anywhere! I went to Dick's looked online at Campmor and a bunch of others.

Anyone know where I can get one of these metal coolers??

Holy crap!! :shock:

I went right to the source: Coleman's web site. (I thought I had done that before but I guess not.) Anyway, I found them and they still make them. But check out how much they cost!!

Really cool though. No pun intended.

I had one that was red and the latch broke on it so I put a window latch on it. Had that for years and the inside started to break apart and the lid warped (probably used it for a bench once too often) so I dumped it. It even had a bottle opener built into the side by one of the handles.

SUCCESS!

SUCCESS! I have created a post that caused Bountyhunter to go out into his back yard with his camera, take pictures of trash, download them to his computer and post them here.

I think my work here is done. :D

Lmao! I couldn't help it. You want a cooler like that and I've had one sitting here rotting because I'm to lazy to take it to the dump. I thought it was ironic. :lol:

Hey does yours have the bottle opener on the side? And does it come off? Maybe you could part that cooler out and make a few bucks! The new ones don't have the bottle opener.

I didn't notice. I'd go back out and look but you'll just make fun of me. :?

No I won't, I promise!

Your girlfriend, on the other hand, is probably wondering what the hell you're up to...

It's to dark to see out there. I'll check tomorrow, but if you poke jokes it'll be the last trip into the back yard that I make for you. :)

I found a red one in my dad's basement and it's in A-1 condition! Had no idea it was worth anything. Thanks Eddie!
