Thank you. Funny you referred me to wikipedia. Just got through reading that and it's called " hot wire " three piece bent wrap-around glass. For some reason, I think I heard it referred to a different term' back when they came out; but can't remember. thanks again

If you could find some original Olds sales literature it might have another name for it.
