But, how do I get to the 60's?
John Titor never answered my open offer.

I accept that their values are different than mine, . . .
I don't mind aftermarket, remakes, or copies, if the quality is adequate.

If I had a 65 Mustang, missing the ashtray, the only reason that I would 
pay anything significant for NOS replacement would be if I had immediate 
plans to sell it to somebody for whom that stuff matters.
Yes, I can see the differences between the original headlight assembly on 
the Honda, and the Chinese imitation replacement.  But, I don't care.

For a long time, I wanted a Twiggy drive, since I had some of MOST other 
types of drives.  Now, I'm not into floppy disk formats like I used to be.

Anybody need a 3" drive?  (I'll start with ones that are in reach; I don't 
know when I will find the 3.25" or Amlyn drives)
