Vote on the Best Vise-Grip Story

1981_buick_skylark.jpgWaaaay back in July, we told you about the Best Vise Grip Story contest. At the time, Irwin was making the call for submissions and now that they've narrowed it down to a handful, it's your turn to take over the voting. The winner will motor into the sunset with a custom chopper.

To vote you have to go to Irwin and register. Once that is out of the way, you can vote once each day, through Dec. 19, and with each vote, you have the chance of winning some prizes as well (plier sets, wrench sets, t-shirts, hats, etc).

We flipped through the entries and there are some interesting ones. We skipped over any that didn't have photos. How do you expect to win a chopper if you can't even muster up a photo? We liked the one from the puppeteer (we're down with puppets) and we also liked the one about the old Buick Skylark, but that's because our college roommate had a Skylark. The car was virtually indestructible and the key was broken off in the ignition. It was eventually stolen (big surprise there). As a complete aside, the 1982 Buick Skylark made this guy's list of the Top 17 Worst Cars Ever.

Check out the finalists and vote here.

My husband is one of the 50 finalist. He did not post a photo because it happened back in the 80s and we did not have a photo.

Please check out his story (Paulie from Valley Center) and vote for him if you like the story.
