The Million Dollar Question: 3W or 5W?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Jive-Bomber, Jul 12, 2011.

  1. 3W - I've always wanted one in either '32, '33 or '34 variety.

    If someone is going to give me one for free , well then I am not greedy . I will take either one and be very happy ! To be honest , the 3 window is really nice but so is a 5 window . Both have their place but I will be happy as hell with either one !

    5 window!!! It's my daughter's wedding for gods sake. She likes the 5 window over the 3 window as well.

    Gotta love those 3w's ! Just have a class look to me, not that I would turn down a 32 5w if someone asked me in a nice way to take it!

    OK i added them all up and the 5 windows win 56 to 35.So as of right now 5w s are officially worth more because they are the favored in the 1,000,000 dollar question.

  12. Had a 5w very similiar to this in the 60's not as low but close and always in grey primer. Everyone said too bad it's not a 3w back then. I would give my right *** to find or buy that car back today :eek:.
    It will always be the 5w for me :cool:
     
  13. 3 window... if I wanted a 5 window... I'd have a Model A!

    I'll take the 5 window if he is giving it to me, then try and buy the 3 window off of him too.

    Was just looking thru some early to mid 70's mags and found a car that has always stuck in my mind. 32 3window, red, unchopped, channeled the width of the frame, Scott blown flatty with painted wires and wide dirt trackers on the back. That does it for me,Cat
