Old School WFO Board - Can't find bindings to fit - help!

I am wondering if anyone knows if there is a company that makes bindings that will fit a super old school board. I still have a WFO 157 that I bought in 1996. The company that made it was named WFO (it's an all black board with brownish wings on the tail and it says WFO) The wings sort of look like the Harley Davidson symbol...

Today's base plates will not fit the holes in the WFO base because the mounting holes in today's bindings are too narrow. In fact, the entire baseplate is too narrow. The bindings that fit it broke many years ago and were thrown away. I have tried to find some replacement bindings that fit this board for the last couple years, but can never find anything. Anyone have some suggestions on where to look?

I can't even find a picture of this board online anywhere, that's how old it is. I will take a pic or 2 of the board when I get home tonight to give you an idea of what I'm looking for.

I want to ride it again just to see what sort of crap-tacular board I learned on back in 96. IIRC, it was a 1994 model that I bought in 96 for $250. It included board, bindings and a pair of Jobless (company name) boots.

I still have the boots, I think, although the company has gone out of business. They sort of looked like Sorel. They had almost 0 ankle support and didn't even go above the highback on the non-low profile highback bindings.

I am going to see if I can dig up the boots and will take a picture of the whole setup.

I would if I could find the stupid digital camera, but I have no idea where it went.

The bindings that go with the board are so basic looking it's funny when you compare them to today's gear.
