You know, after reading this thread for awhile now...not that my opinion counts for anything other than myself. It is a fantastic looking car! People who have lived with these cars and know them inside out, they are to be respected. Then on the other hand, the original owner, who knows what he ordered and has owned, he is to be respected too. From my own experience its frustrating to have bought my car when 18 years old, then someone tells me "that's not original to your car, or that is wrong." Mine is a late 69, so I tell myself that is why. I will say this is amazing site, with wonderful people devoted to an amazing car, and be thankful for that.
