RE: [Chrysler300] survey for owners of C, D, E



Hi Bill, Look at the picture of the 300C with 1/2" external rope** through
bolt eyes holding hood closed on Chrysler archive. 

At NM meet someone had a C with a fancy side to  side, out to fenders ,
elaborate, no fail  "double latch"  "for racing";  Bruce Brownell had this
happen to him , too. 

Hard to see out too. No thanks. Just imagine. 

C,D E hoods impossible now. Maybe 10k--- if you can find one . plus
windshield smashed. 

** subtitle on picture says " speed run with the 300C" "they encouraged the
hood to stay closed"

Did a second catch  on my restored C and D , decided why not share results .
But up to you.

I am sensitized as it happened to me back in 65 or so , on a 327 chev
powered austin healy,  at about 50 , resulting in a crash. And cut head. 

Apparently the pin wiggles under high speed , pulls up hard only at high
speed, higher the speed the more it pulls. And vibration wiggles it , if it
shakes / works free of first catch, and enough wind caught, it blows right
through the second 57 safety catch like a slide hammer,, which is a second
pin grabber , a few inches up, same pin,  in the stock design.
