From a German site. What is the deal here?

Obviously not in 1911. I suspect a movie being made?

It looks like a towncar. The wheels and tires look wrong for 1911. Perhaps since it is noted as a 1911 Ford that it was much later, when the correct tires were unavailable.
If it is from a German site then that might explain what looks like a fender that has an upward end on it. Is that an example of a European fender?

It's a movie. Look above the left front of the top (driver side) and it looks like a film magazine. The large square thing the guys are holding are light reflectors.

Shoes and hairstyle of the guy to the right suggests 1950's. The not so authentic towncar is also typical for old cars back then. Maybe they thought the upward bend in the rear fenders made it look even more antique, adding to the appeal.
