Thank You for that, I'm aware of the originating vehicle however knowing that doesn't help anything when you need 4 or 5 more of them. Regarding Kirk, I've already bought him out of them. He helped me out. The only one Kirk has left that I'm aware of is one of his early units. Nothing wrong with those by the way, Dorsey Amerisport also has one in Denver from his white 5-S but won't part with it. Suffice to say what ever Kirk had and was willing to sell, it's here, ditto for Wilkinson. I bought them both out of what they were willing to sell. That was an expensive undertaking on my part, but all the ones I bought found a correct home.
Amazing how soooo many 5Steel cars had their a/cleaners & engine screens thrown in the bushes. It bothers me because I'm a purest. Making the world right, one VIN at a time. lol.
