Default Pikington will make saratoga tops Again

To all you who thought this could not be done, Well I just got a call from Pilkington, the OEM supplier of these tops. They are willing to make more of the original Saratoga tops for us, with tint and original logos. We are in need of a top to be sent to Pilkington for two weeks. They want to be sure the tops come out perfect.

This is for real folks, no BS.

Pricing unknown yet. I am hoping for the $500.00 range. The more we get the cheaper they come. Lets get as many together as possible to entice the OEM supplier to continue production

Folks, lets get on this ASAP. This is something we all have wanted for sometime now, do not let this opportunity slip by us. We are so close to actually getting the correct top by the OEM supplier. I am very excited that this can be done. No more $750-1000 payments for these tops used. We can get Brand New tops.......

Very cool.

I just realized my favorite three cars all have glass roof options: C5 Corvette, 951, and the original BMW M Coupe.

I searched and finally hit the right people who could do something. Nice to have low friends in high places. I intent to push for a $250-300 pricing for these tops. I know I will purchase a few just to have.

Really looking forward to it! I had a C4 vette several years ago and upgraded from the fiberglass top to a glass top, and loved it. I'm definitely in if we can make this happen by July - after that I'm overseas again.
