What I got:
5 spare lugnuts for those of mine that are rounding off, new lugwrench to throw away my worn out wrench, trim piece for inside the RF inside door handle, 2 replacment headlight thumbscrews, new twist clips for my maxifuse relay center, and a driver'* side exhaust tip......oh....almost forgot to mention the 2 40th anniversary C pillar badges

What I DIDN'T get:
Left and right front corner lights (mine are cracked), and the console switch pod. Sorry Jason, all three cars were stripped pretty good. Just bare shifters remaining.

There used to be a nice wrecker close to my house, but it moved somewhere. I have no idea where. I wish I did so I could go and see what I can find.

Speaking of the twist caps, one of mine is broken for the maxifuse relay center. Do those break often or something?

No, I'm not putting the 40th badges on my car!

For those that know me better than others, you can probably guess I got them in case anyone with a 40th ever needs one. They only produced about 7000 of these cars, so I figured I'd grab them while I could.
