Default Looking for contact info

I am looking for the names and any contact info anyone may have on the previous owners/execs of PT Cruisn. I know they are out of business, but I am interested in acquiring the patterns, manufacturing items, rights, etc. to their Mirage/Hot Rod grille. My father in-law has a small manufacturing facility, so I may be able to make a limited run of these grilles should I be able to get a hold of all the necessary bits and pieces. Any and all help appreciated.

I did have some success in my hunt. I was able to get an early prototype of the grille. It is kinda rough and a little bent and not a useable piece as is. I have a friend who owns a machine shop and we are working on correcting the measurements, refining the curves and getting it plotted in the computer. Once the new blueprints are finalized, we can cut in on his waterjet. My plan is to cut it out of stainless rather than the aluminum I think the production HotRod grilles were.

I could use some help with the bracing layout. If anyone has this grille on their car already, I could use some close up shots of the bracing and mounting points. What bracing the prototype has is very rough and not really useable, so I am having to work up new bracing and mounting from scratch.

As a side note....I only have the full upper grille and am only working on that. I do not have a matching lower grille, but perhaps one of the available billet lower grilles will work with it. I'm putting a Crusher front end on my Cruiser, so won't need the lower grille.
