What ever they say, they are still salesmen.
It might be a snow job.
I'd have at least put the top up before driving in that mess!!From the looks of the snow caked into the right side wheel, it was either in deep snow or was in a snow drift. the left side has much less snow in it. Looking at the soft snow on the springs, I suspect it was parked and not driven far before this photo shoot.
Looks like spring in Minneapolis to me.
Time to head to the local garden center and get your tomato plants.
Much newer than the Model K
This is a 1916 drawing. The price of cars has come down (I wonder if that is due in part to the low price of the Model T). This is a seven passenger car with a 125 inch wheelbase (Model K was 120 in) for only $1145. In 1906 the Model K cost $2500 and was by far the least expensive six cylinder car on the market.
Typical New York winter storm
Our '14 Hudson has a 40 HP six...cost $1550.
I think by '14 quite a few cars had sixes.
