Prototype OTT

I think most of us old timers know who Donnie Faulkner is. For those who aren’t familiar, Donnie (along with his wife Holly) ran the NHRA Rolling O from 1999 to 2009.

Donnie and Holly were the source of the majority of Scelzi Romeo 2 and Five 3.0 that ended up in collectors’ hands. Using their superior customer service, they shipped out orders worldwide for OR members and even got the boxes signed by Scelzi for whoever asked for it. Before that, I didn’t even know they offered such a service.

After Donnie left Oakley he liquidated most of his collection on eBay. Having reported directly to JJ and being in tight with all of Oakley’s sponsored drivers such as Scotty Cannon and Gary Scelzi, you can imagine the collection he amassed. The quality of his items rivaled Total_O’s from back in the day. Signature one-off X-metals, rare promo items such as Oakley beer, custom made Oakley rings and much more were part of his lot.

An interesting item that eventually ended up in my collection is one of the Prototype OTTs (of which Donnie had a few versions):


I think the pair is made out of some resin. Certainly it’s fragile. No idea why it’s shaped the way it is. A key feature I found intriguing is at some point the OTT was envisioned to have nosebombs with a similar design to the original Racing and Water Jackets. Maybe they will have that feature when Oakley re-visits the OTT again one day.

Donnie is a great guy. I have quite a few cool pieces from him. Gonna see him again when we are traveling for a concert in January

Honestly I am still on the fence with this one. I KNOW its just the beginning and I know that vast improvements will be made over the next months / years on this project. Right now I am using a 3+ y/o Droid that has served me well. Im just waiting for this switch in my brain to tell me it is worth the massive investment for a phone because that's honestly how I use it. With multiple trips scheduled next year will the camera features win me over to justify the costs. Time will tell.

Correct on the trench coat. I have one from the 2000-2004 era that was for the the racing collection for Scotty Cannon. I know I saw a random pic somewhere showing the whole crew wearing them on the starting line.

A few frames out there are hard to tell from real in pics, most a true collector can spot. There are a ton of fake Holbrooks out there that look pretty good over the last few months. Some of the dishonest sellers are actually posting pics with the correct ribbed box, but that is not what they end up shipping to your house when you buy them. No, I havent bought any, just know.

Looks like a Why frame. Could be the 8.2 with that lens shape.

Good list. It will be a long list as you add more through the years, especially if you're doing factory one offs. I would think at least the first 1,000 on the list will have production run of 6 or less pairs - stuff like the Matte Clear Thumps, Neon Green Camo MD, various hand-painted OTTs that Donnie had while he was running the Rolling O, athlete pairs with signature lenses (various racers had X-metals with their names etched on lenses), etc. Others have more out there but have less than 50 made such as the pinstriped MD given out in 2005-ish and assorted race team-sponsored pairs such as the Joker Race Team Romeo 2. Other numbers already on the list will increase since there are a lot more out there than are listed such as the NSJ flame coloured frames (much more than 2). In fact, most of Total_O's output from back in 2006 would top the list. - Oak



Agreed on the flamed NSJ, I was going of off the numbers I could actually pin down. Another pink flamed one has surfaced that I know of.

I dont know if there is a difference from what we would call factory customs and / or prototypes. I have a few prototypes, most notable the Bladerunner. I love the splatter frames, although those are more of just a low volume run. I dont get super excited about "factory customs" unless it is really cool to me. RVF has been selling some, and while I was interested, the price drove me out. Just rambling here.

Perhaps, but the golf specific frames used Hammer stems.
