SOLD: on January 14, 2011 this sold on eBay for $2,425.

Trident always has me thinking of gum.  Delicious sugar free gum, spearmint flavor, in that new packaging that opens and closes like a box of cereal.  It’s kinda fun to offer a slice to your buddy and then tuck that pack away in your pocket, isn’t it?   The new pack doesn’t get all smooshie like it used to either. 

But holy schmoly has the trident fork been used through the years.  Most obvious to us gear heads is Maserati.  But check out the others thanks to Wikipedia… and this barn find with 5,774 miles that started this thought spluge .  Find it here on eBay with no reserve or more details below with “read more”.
