Re: Hello from SoCal

Two sets similar to those (one set had lens flutes, the others were plain clear) went up for auction on Yahoo Japan Auctions last week. They had Subaru "boomerang" logos in the glass lenses.

That's great Scott!

Downunder, when I've gone into a Subaru dealership and asked if any parts exist, I just get either laughed at :lol: , or there's just no reaction, with an open-mouthed gormless glazed-eye expression.... :shock: - so I eventually gave up.

Probably not replaced after the canvas rotted - but it is possible
some did not have the canvas roof, I have never been able to
get an authoritative answer on this.
