Jay,
Great pic, thank you for posting.

Another couple of "N"s with tops partially up.





We occasionally drive our N (aftermarket fenders, running boards and rumble seat) with the top half up (or half down :-)). It keeps the wind off, while allowing the sun to heat you.

A top here is mostly for shade. This is the coolest way to drive during the day: windshield down and back open.

By changing the contrast a little you can clearly see that the rear deck is pointed and NOT rounded. The running boards and the pointed deck make it a Model S Runabout sold Aug 1907 to Sep 1908 [with a few outliers sold later but full production appears to have stopped]. [Disclaimer any of the 1906-1908 N,R,S,&SR parts can be fitted to any chassis (may require a hole or two to be drilled) so the Model S Runabout assumes that the major parts body and running boards are original to the car.]





Note the color scheme also lines up well with the Model S Runabout -- cream colored wheels (chassis).

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Hey-
This is a family site!

We can not have these little beauties running around with their tops half off!

Sheesh!

Keith,
No, they're half on....:-)

Surprised we haven't seen the now infamous photo of the good looking gal cranking one of the forum members T (we're really going down a slippery slope now).

Actually, having just driven my touring car, I think this is a safety thing. With the top in the normal "Up" position you can not see the overhead traffic signals.
