Is that a master vibrator?
Is the thing on the floor with a tank behind it a soldering iron heater?
Check out the rest of the items around the photo.
That's a Remy coilbox. It's fuzzy but that black dot on the left side of the switch is a button. When you press it, it will cause one of the spark plugs to fire and hopefully you get a free start, like a Model T.
I can also see the Remy Magneto on the motor on the right side of the picture.
My dad has the same set up on his 1910 IHC Model F roadster.
Great photo! My first thought for the car was the obvious Buick, however it just doesn't look right for a Buick. The radiator and fill neck make me want to go out on a limb and say Krit.
Otherwise, it looks like my shop. Engine and tools all over the floor. Inner tubes hanging on the door.

What a great photo. There's a lot of eye candy in this picture.
I believe the car in the picture is a 1911 Overland. Overland also used the oval radiator filler neck. The top of the radiator on a KRIT was rounded over whereas the radiator on the car in the picture has a flat top.
That bowed front axle looks more like Locomobile than Overland, but the car looks too small to be a Loco.
There was a baby Locomobile at Hershey this year and it sure looked like that one, but baby blue. Then I saw the Big Daddy of them, the eight passenger Locomobile of Wayne Coffmans, What a huge car, it takes up two model T spaces!!
I would agree with Overland from the radiator but the engine on the floor has overhead valves so it may be a Buick or something else.
looks nearly identical to this 1910 buick engine i got running, plugs in the right place, mag water pump, motor mount and even the hub for the fan.
it also has a similar firewall and windshield setup, also that same delco remy switch, it was a dummy box on this car.
What a gorgeous car. I'd be afraid to HURT it!
Here is a picture of a 1912 Buick which nearly matches the car in the photo. I hadn't noticed Buicks with an oval radiator neck before.
Again, Thanks to Herb for his great photos.
I had never noticed an oval neck on a Buick either! That and the angle on the radiator was why I thought it would likely not be a Buick. Most Buick radiators have an angle nearer to 45 degrees. This car, and the one you posted both have a steeper angle than that. The cut of the firewall is different. And the headlamp posts are different. Maybe a year different but the model the same?
DRive carefully, and enjoy, W2
