Looks like he got a deal on the top: Half Off. )
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).

This is a family site!
We can not have these little beauties running around with their tops half off!
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.
