I have a real factory hardtop in my garage. I've been trying to get help
to get it off the shelf for pictures, but our hours conflict since I
work on railroad time, and she works normal hours. Ed has first choice
on it, but if he finds another, or doesn't want it for some reason, it
will be available to other listers. It's been stored covered for several
years and is in good shape other than the seals.
