I think it needs an alignment.

That one got squashed between two street cars.

A bit off-subject, but don't those look like Firestone accessory wheels??

This is another view. It almost appears that from the hood back, the car has not been modified. Just the front end and radiator.
I wonder if it was steerable?

This is the T that was caught between the street cars. It is still in existence.

If I recall correctly (it HAS been thirty years since I have seen any of L&H's wonderful movies), the first car pictured went between two street cars going opposite directions on two different tracks. I do not remember which film it was. Then again, there was one film where a T met a street car inside a tunnel. That could also have been the one?
I wonder how many of these were built for the Boys? County Hospital had the touring that split in the middle to make a U-turn. I think my favorite was the one where Stan has to pick the motor up out of the street, sets the motor in the back seat, then starts the car (fan running) and drives off. It is not quite as visual as the totally misshapen cars, but somehow I like the disjointed running engine. And the look on Ollie's face is priceless!
Thanks all!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The rear axle in the second picture looks like a front axle installed instead of the standard rear end, no doubt to make it easier to pivot the wheels. Dave

I wonder how many movies have a Model T being destroyed

Steve Schmidt, where is that car now? Who owns it? Any pics? Thanks.

Marty,

The car above that appears to have been "crushed" by two Los Angeles Railway streetcars is owned by, and on permanent display at The Petersen Automobile Museum in Los Angeles.

Before it was acquired by The Petersen, it was owned and displayed at Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park. CA. That venue went bankrupt in the late 90's and it's assets were sold.

Mike.

Mike, thanks! I was just in LA this past summer. Wish I knew then. I'm a HUGE L and H fan.
