I never get tired of this type of image. What are these cars?

The one on the near right is a Buick about 1910 or 12.

Check out the lifting device for that rear end.
Did Weaver make something like that?

Fantastic lighting from that skylight. Stan is right about the Buick. I had a gas tank like that for a few years with that Buick script on it. The T parts on the bench look familiar.

I don't know where you guys find these but I'm glad you do.

I wonder what's under the little trap door in the floor?

Do You think they are Not on the ground floor?

Not quite the same but similar.

I would like to give credit to my Uncles, Ed and Bud for the crane hoist info. They retrieved some old car literature from the family store my Grandfather started in 1908. Ed and Bud reminded me a little of Tweedle Dum and Tweedle Dee. They opened a trap door similar to the one in Jay's photo, and braved the dark dingy corners under the wood floor to retrieve some treasures from days gone by. They are sitting in the back of my Speedster for a Forth or July parade on the Store's 90th birthday.

Not to digress from Jay's wonderful photo, but it has taken my mind to some wonderful places for the last minutes and I notice we have been waxing nostalgic about Montana and other places as of late.

One more car - Model T roadster at the very back, right hand side.

Notice the Model T transmission and magneto field coil on bench at the very back.
