I was riding down the road today and spotted this... had to snap a picture. I know it's not the greatest shot, but I just wanted to share the mailbox, not the picture.

Has anyone seen one of these before? Maybe I am the only one that thinks it's really cool... I want one

LOL! I would have stopped and taken a picture, too - sunny sight. Looks like it could be made by someone who was handy with tools and knew cameras, Roy (hint, hint).

Yeah Roy...there ya go! Perfect to make your 2nd million!

NICK that is a really neat mailbox! If ya get a chance, stop in & ask Jack if he made it or what? There's gotta be a cool story about how it was made. Or at least, where he got it at.

Thanks for sharing! I'd love to have one, also!

that would be easy to make but i don't think it would last long unless it was cemented in.

It's lasted quite a while, my dad said that he remembers seeing that mailbox (or the older version) at the same house 20+ years ago.
