I forget where I got this photo on the net. I cropped it down to this Image and think it looks great as wallpaper or a screen saver shot, try it.
cool car - chick magnet, some things never change!
Great picture, those are almost the exact look of wheel I'm trying to build!!
What I find interesting about those wheels is that the license plate indicates 1917. A careful look at the lug bolts tells me that they are five lug after-market wheels with sheet-steel covers on both the outside and inside of the wood spokes.
The car also has nifty electric headlamps, fork mounted. It does not appear to be lowered much if at all. A really nicely built and good looking car all in all.
Thank you very much for posting it. I can never see enough original speedster photos.
Drive safe, and Happy Holidays, W2
Do the lights look kinda' like these in the 1911 Motor Supply Co. catalog?
Could be? They look a lot like that ad. Thanks R.R.
Happy Holidays, and drive safely, W2
From the look of the shadows and lighting, it almost appears to be a studio photo. Could it be a fake background? Just a thought.
Those are 6 lug wheels and the disc's are too flat to be the sheet metal covers. Also if it was a studio shot, I would have to question why they used a rural winter scene for a picture.
The picture is mottled by age hence the shadowing. The wheels are solid 6 lug disks like Kenny pointed out. I am not to sure what make of after market headlights the car is sporting. Here's the picture before I cropped it down to use as a desktop back round. I can't tell but does it look like the drivers tiny door was made to open??
The dark shadow under the car may be a shield so you can't seee the peoples's feet as they stand posing behind the dummy car.
just a thought.
Nice picture anyway.
I have never seen disc wheels that were absolutely flat.
I'm sure those are wood spoke with a flat disc on each side. Probably Firestone demountables with added discs.
That was a popular wheel and the flat disc were done a lot on speedsters especially.
Chick magnet??? look again!
I think this is a Studio picture.
John- Yea those 'women' don't do much for the eyes.
I guess they had a fan blowing the flags in the studio too?
Those look like five lug wheels to me. Check out the spacing between the bolts on the right front wheel. Dave
Yep, likely 5 lug Firestone wheels. Could it be an early Paco with Staggered seating?
