    What ever happened to the E&J company? Do the still exist (inactively)? Any history on them as far as when they went out of business? Who still owns (or bought) the company and maybe designs and tooling?......the question has been floating in my mind after trying to find the patent info on the type 20 headlights....figured I would ask on here....

    I thought that someone bought the rights to the name and were doing a reproduction of the Type 20's.. I believe there is a thread here on the HAMB about it.

    Someone within the past 10 years bought the name and the tooling. He made exact repops with with the same brass triangle badges and brass circle retainer plates on the back...they were beautiful. Unfortunately, he went out of business. I believe he was on the HAMB at some point.

    CraftyB..from the link above..makes a pretty close copy. His stuff is super nice.

    You can also find shitty ones on ebay, casted in Mexico..that are just the shells.
