Got a pic from a local fellow here- three Model T racers it looks like. The date may be a little early though?? Can anyone identify the speedster bodies? Obviously the first one on the brass car is homemade.
Thanks for this, they are neat looking racers
why are these people wearing suits and ties to run a dirt track???
Times have changed. Farmers used to wear a tie when working in the fields. A full suit was normal attire. It was very common to dress that way while racing on a dirt track. It was also common to wear coveralls over the suit and tie. And this is the after-race photo. They may have taken the coveralls off.
Really great photo. Thanks.
Drive safe, W2
Looks like the whole town turned out for the race!!
Just kidding – they had a population of around 7000 in those days.
Now grown into a small city of 35000 or so.
Would love to know more about these,
Canadian cars 1917, the one in the middle looks like the one I have,right down to the tire rack, and my great Uncle always claimed it was a 1917
so if anyone figures out who made the body on the middle car....I'm dying to know...
Shawn, how about some pics of the TT in your profile. Lots of TT guys here. J
