WARNING, YOU MUST BE NO OLDER THAN 12 TO ENJOY THIS: We debate the cost of restoration vs resale all the time in our community. But, never! NEVER have we debated toilets! Yes, Pooty Pots. We are in the deep weeds now, so hold your nose, not sure what we will find. But here goes.
Here on ebay is a restored Wilcox-Crittenden Head-Mate Type 2 for over 500 bucks. Not the Wilcox-Crittenden Head-Mate Type 1 BTW, I am not sure if the #2 is a metaphor for anything?
Now the first response to the $525 price is. WHAT THE SHIP? But think it over. What did it take to do this right? And if you have a cool cruiser. maybe its a good thing to take a classic crap. I mean you could go out on your cruiser, eat a vintage meal. Like a Monte Cristo Sandwich, or Patty Melt. And then wait and use the vintage Loo. Crank that crank and you have done a vintage time warp.
I have one on Sweet Pea. Never use it cause its an old toilet. And thus inspires another question. is an old crapper, crap? Or better than a new crapper? Keep reading, I will try and weave in more of these. I’m getting there.
Should we go to our Woody Boater Lavatory and test that theory? Maybe I will ask John? Okay, okay.. Sorry. this is not the place for this sort of stuff. It’s a Privy matter. Now if you will excuse me I need to drop my kids off at the pool.
