Title: Windshield needed asap!!!
Post by: Jeremy Stewart on August 29, 2014, 07:38:49 PM
Any help, links, glass specialists "vintage", would be appreciated.  Need one soon, as Chicago police like to give tickets for broken windshields.

Need a windshield for my 68 Plymouth fury 3, 4door sedan. I've called about every place in the chicagoland area with no luck. I refuse to pay over $450.

I can appreciate not "wanting" to pay more then a set price.  BUT if the compounding tickets are going to cost you more in the long run because a consistently broken windshield ticket...then why not pay what is required to fix the problem?

Clearly driving an old car, with parts that are difficult to find, or are no longer produced, is going to be a challenge....physically, mentally and financially.  If you can't find a windshield anywhere...well then you are probably eventually going to "have" to pay whatever it costs to get one...regardless of your personal views on what you "want" to pay.
