I recently picked one up off of CL that I cleaned up.  Once I cleaned it up I checked the date code on the vent damper, ER (1996) date code for this one.  I have to say, I'm impressed with how well it's held up to the abuse it's been through.  How old is yours?

My oldest is from 2006. When taking care of they are indestructible. I had 1 fly out of the back of my truck down interstate 8 going to a California competition about 2 years ago. A few pushes and nudges it fell right back into shape, kinda. Great topic!
