    I say again:

    Girlie straps.

      The mounting tubes I have seen were on a 45 angle.

          Hank, my early '38 BL had one that matched the interior red material. I'd get a picture but it's headed for Brazil.

            I drove a 1933 Ford 2 door sedan to college the year after I got out the service. This was the beginning of the rebellious years. One afternoon after lunch there was a noisy crowd with/cops surrounding two cars in the parking lot one of which was mine. Both cars had girly straps. Mine did not have girl feet pointed at the roof.
