Here I go again!
I decided my softop needed replacement.

With all my parts arriving I have stripped the old canvas off and have started replacing it!

Funny thing is I noticed a lump in the old soft top before removal so I started poking around and looking.

Above the plastic header and under the canvas there was stuffed somebody marijuana stash! LOL! At least 30 years old per info from previous owner of the soft top I am working on! LOL!

We through it away!

I was surprised there was almost no smell to it anymore.

Stories in my mind . . . .
I can imagine one day 30+ years ago some passenger was riding along and maybe the driver got pulled over. Quick, where do we put this . . . . Not under the seat!

Stuff it up there! LOL! Car gets home and Dad decides, I don't need the soft top anymore and removes it from the car. Puts it in storage and the stash is long forgotten . . . . . . Dad passes, Top gets sold . . . and here I am making up stories! LOL!

I'm thinking a dealer kept his stash up there was running low then got shot before he could restock & it stayed there until you found it.
