I just felt the need to post some feelings this morning.  I am about to restore a 1959 Imperial Crown Southampton 4 dr hardtop.  I had one back when they were nearly new cars, and never got over it.  I found a good candidate 1500 miles away.

This morning I spent $372.04 to get me two of those little bitty tail light lens!  Initially I was a bit angry that they could cost that much, then got to thinking about the poor bloke that had to go thru the time, trouble, and expense to manufactgure them, with no guarantee that anyone would ever buy onel  More work and expense that I would probably ever gamble on.  In the end, I am so grateful that they were available and that they will make my restoration look so very nice.  I have no clue as to the quality of them, lhas anyone else ever purchased these?
