Tha k you Casinostocks Casinostocks ! That's what I needed.

Higher value on tan, or..? Would that fall into "worth whatever someone's willing to pay" category?

Thanks again for the fast reply :thumbsup:

Not sure if I fully understand the question but the OE sheaths were all the same price from the Mothership ($25 IIRC). I forgot who made them back for CPK back then but despite being sorta practical, those sheaths didn't do the OGFK (FK1) much justice so most often people went to Mashedcat or AZWelke for aftermarket pancake/taco sheaths.

Right on. Thanks.

Yea, so..I'm asking if a tan FK1 sheath would be justifiably worth more $ on secondary market than a Blk one, both OG from NC..

My first car was an 87 escort wagon that I paid for by working at McDonald’s. No reason to say this, I just wanted to share. It sucked but it was also awesome. Wagons are amazing and I would get another one in a second. My wife would be furious but I bet I could win her over in a single trip to the supermarket.

Jo and I are on our 4th Subaru wagon. :thumbsup:

We did the minivan thing for a little while when the kids were little but moved back to the Outback again. It's tough to beat a wagon.

If we’re doing first cars, mine was a well used 1963 Chrysler 300. Talk about a perfect car for loading all the buddies in, putting the boards on top, and searching for waves. That 383 engine could get us there quickly. It became a big drawback for a poor teenager, when the gas prices starting going up. Mike

'63 300? That's a badass whip. Color?

I always liked the 300s when I saw them. Nice looking cars! My 2nd car was a 1969 Cutlass Supreme with a 3-speed automatic. I still feel like everyone else liked it more than I did. It was a cool car though! Peashit green is what my dad used to call it.
