It's Been A Ford Day!!!! (A DrPhang Rant) / Really Cool Headlamp Info Inside

Ok first off before I start my mini rant I will make with the good info...while in pepboys I ran into a display for a company called kool-vue or something to that effect that sells replacement OEM style head lamps. The stuff on display seemed to be of VERY high quality. Pep Boys sold replacement headlamps for the 87-88 Birds for only 39.99 with brackets and everything!
http://www.kool-vue.com/ for some reason their site does not even list the headlamps yet...but that is the company.

Ok now on to my rant, I got a new drivers side headlamp for the bird for xmas. I went to install it and forgot I had a cracked bracket...also I broke a bunch of those little plastic clips while trying to get them out of the old headlamps. Ok....no big deal, I will just goto Advanced, Pep Boys and Autozone with NO luck. Ok...its 7:00 on firday, I will just go to the ford parts dept in the morning and get what I need.....WRONG AGAIN! They are not open on saturday.

Ohh by the way did I mention my SHO was broke?

Jeeeez you think for $60 Friggin bucks they could have at least given my mom some plastic clips so I could install the damn light.

Needless to say I will be buying my passanger side headlight from Pep Boys! grrrrrr

There are also a few other things I need to fix that I am not even gonna mention.

sorry for the lame rant....and the crappy grammer and all the ....'s it just kinda my thing...

Hah forgot to mention...they had those too! [Image: smile.gif] While I was there I wish I had checked to see if they had headlamp's and markers for an SVO's, I will check again soon. I may just return my headlight to Ford and order from pepboys!

Hey, this is great news! Guys, the Ford stuff probably won't be around for long, most of the TC stuff has already been discontinued. It's great news that someone has tooled up to offer these repros for our cars.
