    How cool is that. I'm so psyched you two were able to meet up and have an international win-win moment. Excellent job, '66 and gorgeous Town and Country, Martyx.

    Hi guys,
    I had a little problem with the window motor.
    But the window is in the car!
    Here are some pictures of the car and the glass:

    BTW: The wooden shoes are called klompen!

    Love this story and how it came together. Cool seeing you show the younger generation how things are done. I sent a message to Barry McGuire last week when the window was reported delivered. If he sees this post with pictures of your son in it, I'm sure it'll be featured on his "Car Crazy" show. :clap:

    It is a pretty cool story, and y'all wouldn't believe how much Martyx's
    son knows about American cars. He corrected me a couple of times,
    and usually the shoe is on the other foot! Speaking of shoes,
    here are the Klompen I received as a token for the effort
    extended with the window...

    Larger, they're a wee bit too big, but some heavy socks will take care of that. :idea:

    Hi guys,
    I made the pictures,
    So you don't see me.
    On the left is my son.
    The window is totally done.
    The window goes up and down, like it's new!
    Thank you all,
    Martyx

    Chances are big that this is also your wagon, back in 2006:

    The other week I came across another green 66 wagon, parked at the side of the road in Brunssum.
