We retrieved this split window from a barn that was in the process of falling down. Needed to get it out before it was lost forever.

A lot of these so called "Saved" cars have been put into barns/sheds/storage to save them in the first place. That's why they are still in reasonable condition.
I have a chuckle when people say they have "saved" a car only to drop it, tub it and generally show no respect to motoring history. Hopefully this one won't get the same treatment.
