    Default Tom Papp key chain float up for grabs

    ok so lets see how this goes.

    I know what a following Tom had. I myself only spoke with him on a few ocasions while having some work done. Very nice guy i must say. Talked to me like i was one of the guys. I ended up with one of his cool key chain floats. it has just sat on my desk for a few years.

    I have a feeling it may mean alot more to one of his close friends. I would like it to go to someone who does not already have one and was close to him that would appreciate it as something more then just a key float.

    How about i let you guys (his close friends) pick who it goes to. Be fair and friendly and lets see if we can make this work as i only have one.
    Thanks

    I never got the chance to meet Tom in person but have a great respect for what he has done for this awesome sport we all love!! I have a fabrication shop with many pic's, parts etc... hanging on the walls. Be nice to add this to my collection with a pic of Tommy to talk to my customers about!!

    Eithor way I hope it goes to the right person for the right cause!!

    I only meet him a few times, he helped with my deck, its the first one he built.

    I would like it and will keep it with the boat if I ever sell it.

    If you reject me because I did not know him well, I understand. I think it would be cool to stay with the first deckboat that he built.

    I think we as in our crew spent the most time with him towards the last few years of his life. He used to come to blythe and ride in my cruiser at the time. Danny picked him up a trailer that he would call home for the weekend. Most of the boats he was building or pitting on at the track were all friends. Im not trying to snag a keychain from anyone, but if its passed on i'll make sure it gets where i believe it should be. RIP

    I have someone that would appreciate having such a treasure. Tim Goodwin former IHBA champ is coming out of retirement and would be honored to take it on every pass with him (wouldn't you honey?) May Mr. Papp RIP and his legend live

    I'll up the offer, a free cool cup holder. Tom was a good friend and a loyal customer. I tripped across this in a box of parts at the Pomona swapmeet. This cup holder deserves to be at the river, not sitting in my desk drawer. Pick it up @
