Wooooo hoooo, roto time !

I just bought a rotisserie off Craigslist. It's a homemade unit that he used to restore a Firebird so it will need some modification for the GTO but it's very nicely made with jacks for raising. Once I'm done with the GTO, the arms will line right up for my Camaro..... I was gonna make one this winter but for $650, I can't hardly buy all the steel and jacks for that..... It does have tiny casters on it but I think I will put larger ones on. It'll be a few weeks before I get it. The guy lives 160 miles away....

I sold mine on Craig'slist last week for $950, it was an autotwirler and looks like your's. Actually your Roto looks better. Good deal!

Is Craigs list the cheapest place for one?

Anyone have a rental for @ 100 a year?

Gotta feeling mine will end up homemade.

Randy, I would've bought yours in a heart beat for that price if you were only 160 miles away....

Jeff if I ever get all my junk restored, I'll have plenty of shelf space to store it on the pallet racking too. Actually, I'll probably rent it out in between cars and after I'm done with it.
I got a response from the seller and he was rather put off that I was disappointed with his failure to inform me of it's true condition. He doesn't want to negotiate until I get the results from the machine shop, which I understand, I was just letting him know that this isn't over if the parts are junk. I haven't heard from the machine shop yet either, so I'm kinda wondering what he found. I'm hoping silence means he didn't find anything serious after cleaning and is proceeding with the magnaflux and sand blasting of the heads for further eval.

I don't know who's gonna stand there and rotate it for 6-8 hours but with enough people, it could be done.

Oh, now you got me going.....if I used the pto on my New Holland and ran the shaft to a gearbox with a belt to a handwheel, like on a boat lift, it could turn the roto while we party...
