Re: Interesting H1 look a like

Dad and I have a two cylinder plan car. It’s about half restored. They are very interesting little cars. I’d have it done but Model T projects seem to get in the way.

Re: '16 Centerdoor restore...

I measured our front window opening it’s the same at the bottom as it is at the top. 39 inches and our top wind folds out and the bottom one in.
