    This is the only info on these jackets. I finally found one on eBay. It's the silver firebird version worn by Burt Reynolds in "Hooper". As a stuntman in CO I have been looking for this style jacket for years. Thanks very much for the article you posted and your passion for these cool vintage jackets.

  9. I have a Porsche jacket and have been having a hard time finding anything about its value. I am just wondering so that I can know if I need to treat it with ultimate respect or if it's wearable vintage? Hopefully you can help!
