alternator

I have the old alternator from my car sitting in the closet. What should I do with it?
Its the stock alt for a 1991 Olds 88 3.8L engine
105 amps, bought from Parts Source, works fine, don't want to toss it in the garbage but also have no use for it now as I have a much higher capacity one in the car, 200 amps that is doing a good job.

1) Get a chain and wear it as bling
2) Stuff your pants with it.
3) Give it some pepto bismol.
4) Put it on your bike and attach the wires to your nipples
5) Use it as a weapon to fend off a bear.
6) Pretend it is a time machine and sell it to a junkie.
7) Eat it.
8) Bury it in the backyard, it will grow into an alternator tree
9) Use it to cook dinner

gosh wisih I had a spare alt... the bitch is killing me. i'll never buy a rebuilt one again. or at least will go to a very know and reputable shop.

i'd just keep it if you are holding on to the car for now.

Thanks but I have amps to spare, the alternator in there now puts out 200 Amps. I was just in a cleaning out the closet mode and was wondering what to do with the old one. Wish I could give it to the guy that made my new one but the shipping cost would make it pointless.
