He is a 2.5" (ID) fine thread nut donated by JP Industrial.
Nice work! IMHO, the mustache really makes him. Thanks JP Industrial! A hat might be a nice touch!

He does look good. I'll probably not try to paint him up, just pass him on as is.

So should I take him to Texas? Eggy is supposedly somewhere in Texas.

I didn't think of a hat.

Nutzy is pretty big now. He fit into a VHS tape size mail box in thickness and width.

Harder to hide, easier to find.

Not that it matters now, I think anyone looking at that thermometer could have easily seen the sack, and took it. I've seen many mascots walk off because they weren't hidden well enough.

Nutzy 3 has been placed!

Had a little change of plans as to my Texas trip so I dropped Nutzy off in Oklahoma this afternoon. I got the new nut in the mail yesterday and decided it would be better if he didn't seem to disappear for a few more days like eggy has. So I took him to visit our local M/C museum and left him there, Seba Station right on Route 66 in the middle of Oklahoma. They were closed for the day when we got there so no pictures of the inside.

I suspect he will get moved fairly quickly.

The drop picture. Hard to see but he's sitting on my aux gas tank.



And a closer shot:




There is an old metal cabinet out back that has been sitting untouched for quite a while, you can see it here, it is behind that old rock outhouse building:



He is hanging in his sack in the left section of the cabinet, pretty safe in there I think, nobody ever goes back there. Door is open some in the picture so you can see him hanging there, closed it after the picture.

Nice drop
Good to see the game on!

I can donate the 'original' nutsack... if you want.



It was worn through when I picked-up the tag, but could be a link to the previous edition.

Sure, just pick him up, trade nutsacks, leave the new one there and I'll pick it up.
