$139.92 Hood ornament ----- GOT MY CHECK TODAY

Got the GW wash today, as I was going thur one minute I see a hood
ornament the next gone.

The car wash manager finds it and says go get a bill of sale and we
will pay for it.

No question asked.

Go to the local Jeep dealer $139.92 special order.

Take that bill back to the car wash, the manage said no problem
the main office will mail you a check.

We will see.

Holy schmoly!

Suddenly the $300 used Super Wagoneer gunsights on ebay seem more reasonable.

I'm floored you actually got the check. That restores my faith in humanity ... a little bit.

that is amazing!


I had fun with my POS vapor locking going up Wolf Creek Pass 3 years ago. We removed the hood to vent the engine bay and saved the ornament in the glove box. After that I put a Wilson (Castaway movie) car antennae topper on there. Make ya a good buy on this original 1988 230+K mile ornament.
