I loved the way he climbed up the front of the car after he cranked it. What a way to get in!

Harold Lloyd was fantastic!!! (But I always preferred Buster Keaton)

I'd like to have a better look at that curvy thing in front of the spring. Anybody recognize it?

Wayne - agree! Buster Keaton is my silent comic hero.

Steve - almost looks like some sort of two piece over load spring. Maybe put on there by the studio to help the car survive some of Lloyd's antics...

Just watched the whole film Jay. Thanks for the link. Loved the scene where they were stuck behind the other car only to get around it to find out what was really going on...

Steve,
I thought you meant the "curvy thing" in front of the spring hanging the pot off the eave of the shack.

Yes, those are H&D type shock absorbers. They were made by at least a dozen different companies in the USA, Europe and Australia. They have been discussed on the forum before, however no real resolution to their history other than a lot of different companies made them and most versions have no maker's name on them at all. Many years ago, I had a set that were genuine H&D company. I wish I had not sold them. I have seen many of the shock absorbers since, however never another nearly complete set with the H&D name on them.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
