Incredible. This really makes me want to sell every single chrome auto I own to get one of those. Remind me again why I spend money on prospects?

Thanks for all the comments, gentlemen. I waited to buy until I found a nice, clean copy.

Coug46n2----I asked myself the same question about a year ago and have been buying more vintage ever since.
