OEM vs repro. I guess it depends on your perspective. I never cared about oem vs reproduced bodies (steel or glass) until I got my '69 Camaro which is an all steel numbers matching original survivor. When Dynacorn started importing new camaro bodies, and guys started cutting rusted scrap oem cowl's up and building a "new" Camaro around a VIN tag it chapped my *****. It hurts the value of my vehicle and its just plain dishonest.[/QUOTE]

Same with glass guys buying up titles so they didn't have to title it as New or pass inspection for an assembled title!!!

"Hey, what year is your "T"? "Oh its a 2010

I had a 34 coupe and was beat in COBO by the first glass replica I ever saw personally on the street or at a show !! I admit if it was steel he would have beat me hands down!!!! But I actually chopped mine his came in the kit already chopped! That stuck in my craw all these years!!

So Im kind of biased Jester
