HAH!! Looky what I just found, packed away in the basement?!?!? Add teh OS hawtness to the dead sexxxxxxxxyness!!!

The Pic that has the yellow circle: You can't see the words but it's right there..."JT Racing 1985".

The original foam ears are completely intact, none of the rivets are rusted (don't know how THAT happened though :huh: :dry: ) and the strap is still stretchy and in great condition!!

Has the original single lense but I'll be getting a new thermal for it for the Normandy game. MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

That's sick! Usually you'd find them nowdays with the soft ear's part removed and/or rotted away. Now thats a peice of history haha.

yeppers :D . Finding that mask has brought back sooooooo many good memories...

Oh man....:headbrick: ...lol.....that was my first mask...from 1986. It's got the ABSOLUTE BEST qualities for tucking your head tight, air flow is way less restrictive and less vapor gets on the lense (fogging)...it's just an awesome mask that's older than most peeps on all the forums.

Exactly! This one's in about 99.5% condition too! The goggle foam is good, the ears are perfect, the rivets are not rusted AT ALL and the strap is still stretchy and NOT faded!

Apparently, when I packed it away the many moons ago, I must have subconsciously known I'd forget about it and packed it in a tupperware food tub but wrapped it an old bath towel. I was down in mom's basement looking through some stuff and that tub was tucked away in an old metal, 'pedal-opening' trash can with a lid. When I moved some boxes, the can fell over and the lid popped open and the tub rolled out. Naturally, I had to open the tub...MAN...was I suprised!

pretty much...but it's more like finding Old Minted Coins from the 1800's in your coat :D ...

I love this mask and I'm wearing it at Normandy!
