That is a fascinating car! A well-formed hood, smoothly rounded at the back, blended into the angular Ford radiator in the front, with fancy louvers. Top-notch paint job, with nicely striped wheels. Definitely not the typical slap-dash speedster of the day. But I wonder how far those fashionable ladies would have wanted to drive in the rain, with no weather protection of any sort, and no fenders to keep the mud off their fancy clothes.

Gil, I agree with you on the styling of the car, I think the ladies are another story. Looking at the buildings and cleanliness of this car I would guess this was a one time pose, shortly after the car being built. We must remember people of that time were still enamored with self motivated vehicles.

Beautiful car! I can't imagine such proper ladies climbing in and out of that car with no running boards very much. It is not lowered much if at all, and I know how it is with my boat-tail which is lowered a fair amount.
Great photo again, Jay. Thank you.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
