    The thread title says it all.

    For me, this is easy. I would love to own Pee Wee Herman's bike from my favorite movie, "Pee Wee's Big Adventure". Unfortunately, "Its not for sale, Fraaaancis."

    What's that?

    That's a good choice. I did a Google Image search and he seems to have had a few. What era desk would you like?

    Don't even get me started. If I ever did, my house would soon look like hoarders. Anything Star Trek, Larry Bird, Muhammad Ali, Old guitars or almost any musical instrument.

    Well, if I could get a photo of the Lewiston, Maine Ali-Liston fight taken by Neil leifer and signed by Ali, It would probably be a treasure for me.

    The coolest thing I own is a Jeff Gordon nascar helmet, the design he wore when he won the inaugural Vegas race painted by Gary Hess who was his helmet designer/painter back then. Gary would paint several of each design, cool fact, Jeff is among a few drivers who practice in a different helmet than they race in so as not to get the race helmet all sweated up. Oh, and Gary knows which ones he painted from counterfeit ones as he purposely inserts a mistake in every helmet he paints.

    It is from a very, very bad 1970's doomsday/post Apocalypse movie called "Damnation Alley"

    I'd have picked Ali's gloves from that fight signed, but maybe I'm selfish. :eek:

    That's cool. I love cheesy movies. I'd love to have a mid Joel-era MST3K Tom Servo. Its certainly in my top 10 coveted props.

    That's a great reason and such a sentimental choice. Reps when I'm able.
