    Where is the bow on the car? A spring?

    i think that the bows she is talking about are the bows under the roof covering. on most cars of that vintage, like our dad's model a, the roof was not sheet steel, but a framework with a top covering of some sort of weather proof material (vinyl or some such), with bowed supports to form a shallow arc, then fitted out with batting, then the interior material.

    That's not an old car, Larry bought one new when he got his drivers licence

    Now back to your regular scheduled programming
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
