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.

Nope.

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.
Thanks!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

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!!

Great picture!!!
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.

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.

Richard E,
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
