The correct spelling of 'theam' is THEME. Maybe YOUR theme song should be "If I only had a brain."

A system that should never have been abandoned,(think North Cove). We pressed out parts, assembled them in Body, painted and trimmed them out for final assembly! Worked from '42-2001'!

Remember Jeeps with square headlights. We pressed out parts shipped them to Canada where the parts were assembled in body {Canada} painted and trimmed out {Canada} final assembly {Canada} shipped to U.S. for sale at dealerships. How soon u forget.
