So i've JUST about got my '71 GT done after years of working on it, only down to the windshield... but that should be a piece of cake to find right? After many phonecalls to leads in the area, no luck with Pilkington, a dead end visit to Safelite, and one grumpy Craigslist guy I decided to expand my search. I'm based out of the Milwaukee area and got a solid lead on one in VERMONT!!! Road Trip time, its only 1000 miles away. After two days of driving and a nice stay at the Trapp Family Lodge we get to the junkyard that has my golden goose... only instead of a golden goose its a half-rotted duck and definitely NOT an Opel GT Windshield... BUT WAIT, they know a guy in Bethlehem PA that has one... BUT WAIT, no he doesn't
So here I am, 1000 miles away STILL without a Windshield praying to the Opel gods that SOMEONE here between the east coast and Wisconsin has an extra that I can swing by and buy!
