Johnson Thunderbolt II circa 1965. Johnson had the product made by an
outside manufacturer or it was a relabeled existing design . I have the
product brochure here in the files.

> I'm happy to see a "reasonably complete" display like this, in
> for example to the Leo Meyerson collection which was dumped by the
> Western Heritage Museum when someone decided it wasn't worth keeping
