Use '34 Ford latches [ so much cleaner than the Jeep hold-downs AND still have the convenience of a 4 piece hood]

Parking brake.   This car had been chopped, and the roof and vent filled in the 1950's.  I didn't have room under the car to have the  brake in the normal places, so I attached it to the vent mount.  I thought it might put to much stress on the cowl, but that doesn't seem to be the case.  It can be reached from the drivers seat but it is definitely not an 'emergency' brake.     Bob
