Yee-haw! Rootin Tootin Car-bootin’

As the sun rises red over the plains. Gold, or at least bargain, fever runs high.The wagons have rolled in. The goods are unloaded.

Across the prairie come two sharp shootin’, fast talkin’ prospectors. Chaps full of change and a fistful of dollars. Quick on the draw when the price is right.

Welcome to the wild wild Westcountry.

And the car boot corral.

Hard bargainin’ booty


Back at the ranch

Til next time, partners.

We gotta hightail it outta here.

  1. HA!! Well that looks like just about the scariest car boot ever…where on earth was that one?!?!?! Those dolls are the stuff of nightmares…I dont even want to think about who may buy dolls head sans body and what for. Terrifying.
