Ya gotta respect vinyl

These are out of my rescued wagon. All three looked like the one on the right originally. I've cleaned the middle one a little, and the left one a lot. The vinyl is still soft and supple after 55 years. Too bad about the slit in the driver's seat. (Note this was last registered in 1970 and at least some portion of the time since sitting outside, uncovered, with a broken window.)

The title had my mind going to my black interior in the vert after it's been sitting in the sun, it demands respect especially if you're wearing shorts.

That's because it is not vinyl but Naugahyde. Naugahyde is much more durable than vinyl but is no longer legal to sell since you can no longer kill or harvest Naugas for their skin.

Yes that old Naugahyde was a good product.

Not sure if it's still as good, but still made -- [www.naugahyde.com]

Can't hunt nauga's anymore - endangered species. Too bad, taste like chicken...

Red with a silver or white exterior will look great!
