Re: caveat emptor

I saw that car on ebay and noticed that it didn't have the hole on top of the doors for side curtains. I could be wrong but I thought all the original roadsters had those.

Re: Center main blowout

After that happened to me I installed a speedway main cap support, figured it couldn't hurt, so far so good. Has anyone else used one of these?
