Ahhh, the Harry Truman kitty from Spirit Lake.

Sooooo, what are the 'hooks' on the front for?

And why the rounded windshield? Was it to help the canvas roof seal??

(other than to build no two the same, even from side to side )

Your space is getting pretty tight out there. Better send that one east . . .
