I am very surprised and embarased by the reaction to my post. Do you people have nothing better to do than heckle and harass people? The detectives on here see a new profile and assume everyone is a scammer, god forbid a guy accidentally types 1967 instead of 1967... I was a regular user on this site and purchased a speedster off it sometime around 2011, it's been so long I couldn't remember my username or password. I currently have 2 replica speedsters, and two very good friends with speedsters. Additionally, I know 2 guys with real speedsters. Assuming everyone that owns a plastic speedster likes real speedsters it doesn't seem unreasonable to get the word out on this site that the glass is available. Furthermore, this windshield was bought as part of a speedster project I bought off a guy on long island. He thought an original windshield would be really cool on his replica, I used a windshield off the shelf and saved it. So it's not out of the realm of reason that a guy would by it for a replica. In these days when a plastic speedster can be over 20 or even 30 thousand bucks, 2 grand isn't a ton of money. I think vintage speedsters gets 7 or 800 for a piece of glass these days.....
Perhaps the most distressing part of the reaction to my post was the complete lack of manners and decorum. Most of you wouldn't be a complete ass to someone you met at a swap meet or car show. Yet you attack like a bunch of animals at a new post. As us "car guys" age there is a real lack of interest in vintage vehicles among the younger generations. I constantly try to engage younger people who are interested in my cars. Rather than a don't touch sign, I encourage kids to look at my cars, climb inside, sit behind the wheel, whatever. I would hate to have a new and fresh guy to the speedster scene stumble onto you guys and be discouraged rather than encouraged to join and carry our hobby forward.
In my mind, if I see an ad am I'm nit interested, I move on. Why would you throw insults and call someone names? Would you act like that if you saw me on the street? If I don't like the price on an ad, I move on... I see no reason to beat the advertiser up over his price. And "it doesn't fit any of our cars" or "nobody on this site would pay 2 grand for a piece of glass." As far as I know it fits every speedster kit car on the planet, and can you really speak for everyone on the site as to the price and whether it would be appropriate on a kit car? Is it also your position that nobody on this site knows real 356 owners, hangs out around restoration or body shops, or has an interest in real steel 356 cars? Try practicing a little civility rather than flexing your finger muscles on the keyboard.
I also have extra trim, front and rear bumpers, a deck lid, and a very nice hand laid fiberglass toneau cover with a hump behind the drivers head. And a very nice pair of vintage original Bosch fog lights that would work on any german car, plastic or steel. I planned on listing these items individually but am waiting to see if the squealing following my first post die down.
