Just made a major find for my Monte.

Jumped on ebay real quick to check on some spare T-tops I have been watching and there was a new listing with NOS American Hatch T-tops for my Monte complete and still in the original box with all the original paperwork. Mine are OK but not "show" quality and would have been kind of a downer on my car when I get the body and interior done. These are EXACTLY the same as mine and had a decent "BUY IT NOW" price. I damn near fell out of my chair! I couldn't hit the BUY IT NOW fast enough and it seemed like it took forever to process but they are MINE! Christmas came early for the old Hippie this year!!! And the cool part is mine are still decent enough to bring a fair price after I swap them out. My wife is going to frickin' KILL me!!!

Well, IF you can find seals for the Hurst T-tops they're bringing 6 to 800 bucks I am told. IF you can find them. I have compared my American Hatch T-Tops to Hurst and there isn't a lot of difference, in fact they use MANY of the same parts so I picked up some Hurst pieces for spare parts. Let's just say I paid less than I had expected to pay for just seals. True wives can only kill you once but they can make you wish you were dead over and over again..........

Just scored again! A pair of NOS GM 1/4 panels off Ebay, I know this guy and tried to buy them a few months ago but the price was out of my range. He put 'em on Ebay last week and nobody else bid and I got them for what I had originally wanted to pay.
