Was that over by Norwood ? It looks kind of like one I've seen somewhere.....but then at that age they all look like one that has been seen before. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Smile

This must be the 58 you were talking about when we were out? Early big windows are pretty cool =D>

Actually the 58 I was gonna check out didn't happen, this is a different one from Northern New Mexico, found an add on CL and really called it because I saw a Bus in the background. Told myself I didn't need another project so I waited all day til I called. Missed a logoed 21 window for 4G!!!!!!!!!! ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Oh well, the 58 Bug is pretty nice Wink Smile

And when I say cheap, relinquishing the title of the split to j.j. for rent is what I mean! Lolololol

Tows just fine if I keep it under about 50MPH, 55+ especially if I'm snaking downhill and the tow vehicle often decides that it wants to steer!!!! Wink Wink that's a Bus tow bar so it's extra long and grabs a Bug beam loosely so it shuffles around a bit 8-[ 8-[ Smile
