If the city is Yakima, WA, it's in south central Washington state. That's where Yakima Canutt came from. He was an early movie stunt man and often in the cast of early John Wayne movies, around 1930-1936. The story is that he took his name from the city he was from.

Again with the license plate screwed to the cowl. I have that cowl. Looks like the Hasslers have been well exercised. And I still have a quart of Zerolene.

Henry, did you see the PBS "History Detectives" where they identified a saddle that belonged to Canutt? Good story.

That wagon looks to be almost same as ours:



Wife bought this one in Rockford, Ill, in about 1972. It needs bearings or bushings. I'll make some out of wood dowel one day.

Ralph,

I missed that PBS "History Detectives" episode, but I'll watch for it in case it's repeated.

In addition to a wood dowel you'll need a round tuit also! :-)

By the looks of the puddle below the car, they only serviced model Ts.

OH, Henry!!! round tuit.



The puddle consists of the mixture I referred to in the "Garage Floor Coatings" thread earlier.

The more I look at that picture the better I like it, Jay

GREAT PHOTO!

Does that wagon in the car photo have filler spouts on the lower side of it?

Red Crown "FILTERED" gasoline...how did they filter it?

Isn't Fred Chandler mentioned in "Me and the Model T" by Roscoe Sheller? I am at work and don't have my copy handy, but I believe he was one of the dealers that Sheller worked with in the early days in Sunnyside Washington.
