I wonder how much oil is getting to #1 rod?
The slope of the car is such that the oil will not flow by gravity down the internal pipe. It seems that there is something at the rear of the T, looks like an added wheel but I'm not sure I can make out any details. I wonder how much weight has been added to the rear to lift the front, I suppose it could be calculated but it's too early in the day for such nonsense.

Looks like the rear end has been moved forward about 3 feet, and the driver has on a Shriner's cap. Also, the flag at the left appears to have 40 stars.

There must be a row of stars concealed by a fold in the flag. I just looked at flag history, and there never was a 40-star American flag.

It was a common practice to move the rear axles ahead in these "parade" T's. Every once in a blue moon one will show up on the inter web.
