I think you meant that the louvers are curved on the 33. You got two and neither one was the ones I was looking for!

Ok, how about I specify the cowl. One involves the difference in the hood latches, the other one not.

Let's give it another go before I give it to you Dan.

Come on now guys, do I have to "give it up"? The differences I was looking for are on the cowl it's self.

One of the ones I am looking for wasn't mentioned until a few posts from the last on the link you furnished.

You're right on the 33 louvers. The cowl had a hole for the latches on the 34, also a dimple on top of the cowl for the hood to set on, IIRC.

You are right on the dot, I forgot to check back, sorry this has taken so long.

Yep, on the 34 they a rest for the hood right on the front of the cowl top. Where you see the L shaped bracket for the 33 hood latch to grab on a 34 there is a domed shaped hole there.

Your floor Dan!

Henry built a country mansion, his thought was to keep Edsel away from the fast, wealthy Detroit crowd. This mansion also in later times, had an automobile named after it. What was the name of Henry's mansion?

Isadora Duncan 1927, James dean 1955, Eddie Cochran 1960, JAYNE MANSFIELD 1967, Karen Silkwood 1974, Grace Kelly 1982, Princess Daina 1992.


Here are seven that I knew of without googling. After googling I looked a long lists not remembering any of them so I didn't think I deserved to list them.

Someone add three and you have the floor.

I'm sorry Dave! Joeford, it was Daves turn.

Dave, how about we add something a little bit to your question, the guys name is probably a quick google away. How about, what kind of cars were they? Deans is easy to find, but what about the other car?

My brother was friends with Max Balcosky a famous SoCa sports car racer of the day. While talking to him one day James Dean came up and he told me he passed the wreck on the way home from the track that day. Man do I miss Max, what a book he could have wrote. I was with him at a car show once and the whos who of cars that were there walked up to him to say high knowing him by name. He was something else, what a charactor.

Trivia

You are right, Brian!

Add to my question about James Dean:

What was the name of the guy in the other car? What were the two cars involved, and what was the name that James Dean had given to his car?

Donald Turnupseed was driving the car, I've met the man when he was alive, a nice guy, the family is still running the business he started, Turnupseed Electric. I met the son when I installed a wood stove for him quite a few years back, a nice guy also. David told me his Dad never could lose the notoriety of the accident. He wasn't reviled by people around the town, but just was tired of talking about it. I'll have to google the car, I am tired and can't remember so I give my answer to the next guy with the name of the car. Jezebel? yawnnnnnnnnnnn, Tippy? Sneezy? Dopey?...........zzz
