I scoured every inch of old barns and shops in Californ-i-a and everywhere in between. I finally found one lurking in Washington state. It is the Award Cycle variety. I never laid my hands on one, barly saw any pictures of one, then there it was in a Fedex package, the first I had seen in person, the first I laid my hands on. I am planning to put it on my old T-bird for the David mann show in December. ANY pre-unit finned cover is as rare as can be, the Award Cycle variety is the most "common." Lou Kaiser ides in the mid-eighties, he made them for Christ's sake and he did not even have one when he died, the guy (whom I traced) who got all of kaiser's stuff does not have one. I get a woody and the hair stands up on the back of my neck everytime i walk by the display case. To me it was like having a son when it arrived. (Course I have no son so I really don't know). But they are the ultimate piece I can guarantee you that.
ive had a few pass through my hands as well and its like holding a fine vase or something a repop wouldnt interest me a bit... i pay 400 to have another originalfouraceswes said:hmmmmmm, I don't know. On the one hand, capitalism rules and if i could make a buck or two, why not? On the other hand, if everybody has one, then he rarity is gone, and maybe some of the thrill too. I have had offers to cast them up from some guys, but right now I want to just keep it for its rarity.
