Collectable or car cover? Can't Post

Buddy of mine is going through a dead friends stuff and found a couple rigs. One is an SST with a Tri-con in it. Its been packed since 1981. He thiinks there is a square in the main. I would figure its a starto star. This of any interest to any of you guys that collect this stuff? Rather someone have it that would collect it than it end up a car cover.
There's another rig in a box, never used, he's suppose to check out this weekend.

Was the guy a skydiver as well? Sorry to hear he's gone.

When you get a list, post it here. I'm sure someone will be interested. BTW, the first square I owned was a Strato Star.

Was the guy dead before your buddy started going through his stuff? Or was your buddy caught and the guy got dead in the ensuing fight to save his valuable gear?

Don't car cove it. At least drop test the reserve.Wink Of course the SST wouldn't have opened in 1981. Maybe they needed aging.Cool

Seriously give us here first chance.

Hi Jack,

Might I suggest that send an email to John sherman and see if he might want it?

He might just try to refute Terry's thoughts. Shocked

The guy who's rig it was, was Ray MaGuire. You can read a little about him in the Blue Sky's stuff.
I know the SST opened cause he cut a main away on a team jump that got knocked open, then got in the star and fired the Tri-con.
Anybody near Reno that could go look at the stuff to check out what's there?

I'd be happy to take a ride up there and have a look. PM me.
