What are these? Mystery item at pawn shop.
« on: September 09, 2014, 08:01:25 PM »
Found a pair of these at a pawn shop.  May not be car related but I am wondering if anyone can give a hint as to what they are.  The are cast iron, and pretty thick and heavy.  No markings other than what is shown here.  Any ideas?

I know these may not be car related, but I have searched everything and everyplace I could think of, and I am stumped.   The heavy cast iron is gorgeous and I wish my exhaust manifolds looked this good.  Anyway, I am turning to my Camaro buddies to help me solve this mystery and allow me to sleep better.  Some mysteries just have to be solved.  BTW, they were asking $5 for the pair.  looking back, I should have bought them.  Maybe I will go back and get them...why, I have no idea.

 These look like cast iron gas stove manifolds.

And there you have it.   Looks like Mike was right.   Gas grill manifolds.   :o

 Now we know what they are for, all that is needed is a grill body, a propane tank, some Nathans, burgers, steaks and a few brews and have a tail gate party and talk about the Ford and Mopar guys (they bash Camaro owners anyways).   ;)

Not a slam at ya Steve, but I did not know who is crazier (if you did buy these) the pawn shop that took in stuff it did not know what it was or the guy who bought them without knowing what they are???lol...I slept just fine, well layed awake a little while.

well if you dont grill, you could always keep it in the car to slap a idiot up the side of hte head,   it has a nice " handle" and perfect "flat spot" to leave a mark :)

Maybe i should get a set for the kids,  to heck with a belt!

I would keep these with the car show cleaning supplies......to use on the idiots that keep touching my car, or who wear those big a** belt buckles.
