My Dad brought some of these home for us kids back in the mid 70's. I think we had a couple styles. We really wore them out, they're thin straw and not very robust. I have some great memories of wearing them, once when it was raining out, I'd let it fill some with water and tilted my head down to soak my little brother.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
