When I was looking at the above picture JBA 70 I noticed that the car was not a conv coupe like Glenn Prey's car but a conv sedan. Perhaps it is the same car as 369.

I presume JBA 369 and 370 are showing the same car. I'm also curious about the folding windsheild. The licence plate appears to be 1950 Ontario.

I'm also curious about the slanted windsheild in JBA 8, 672 & 673. I believe that Jim copied these from my fathers collection. The prints I have are too smal to decipher the year on the licence plate, but they appaer to be from Ontario as well.

What is the story with these two cars and does anyone know why so many unusual L29's ended up in Ontario ?

Thanks, Mike

I'm pretty sure Glenn made the folding windshield himself.
As a side note the correct spelling of his last name is Pray.

I have been told by Bob Joynt that several L-29's exported to Canada had folding windshields and other changes. There are three or four pictures of JBA 370. Look for the radiator mascot to identify them.

Note how the rear spring shakles have been changed to lower the car in Pete's photo.

I think it improves the lines like that. It's definitely suites my tastes. :D
