What's that little (nickel plated?) part on top of the cowl?

Notice there is no windshield? That's a broom handle laying against the building that I thought was a windshield for a moment.

That is the classic drag racing dare look I used to get a stoplights back in the day. I accept the challenge!

Boy, look at that cannon! Too bad we cant have toys like that sold at toy stores anymore! They only allow boring safe toys these days. Sigh.

I wonder if the speedster was built using the Sloyd system?

That's an accessory fender/cowl light on the cowl

Thanks Ed! Looks to be no bigger than a bicycle light!

Ed,

I have a friend who owns a cannon about that size. Used out west during
the Indian Wars. If memory serves, it is called a "Hotchkiss Gun" (?). BOY ! ...
... does it make some noise and flash/smoke !!! Nothing like the 155's we
used in AFG, but no one within a 5 mile radius will not hear it !

The wheels appear to be Pasco, given the shape of the caps and design in the center of the caps. Great photo!

Pasco Sloyd invented the wheel. Everyone knows that !

Tight fit. Hardly room to push the pedals.

Uno, Pasco, and I all went to different schools together. I owe it all to
Numero Uno !

I thought maybe that was his Flash Gordon Ray Gun for removing slow vehicles ahead. Jim
