Earlier this year, i picked up the shell of 1945/2000 from ripemloose. body was stripped but has very little rust and the price was right (free) so i got it. ripemloose had taken off the dash badge before i picked up the car and he told me he was keeping the title and the badge for sentimental reasons. after i bought most of the body parts and i chunk of the interior, he realized that i was going to put it back together and he gave me the title. about a month later someone was selling a badge off a junkyard car and he said that his was for sale. didn;t think he was going to sell it so i didnlt bug him to sell it. i tried to make him an offer but he had already sold it to someone on this forum. would like to have the original dash badge for this car. i would match what you paid ripemloose for it plus some.
