contains photos showing close to twenty women and a wide variety of interesting cars. See them all @ http://theoldmotor.com/?p=122998
David, don't you mean "Vintage automobiles and the women"? The women in the photos are far from vintage. Anyway, well done; my two favourite themes in the one photo.
I tried calling a woman a vintage once... once.
That second car is a "Sports" car. Notice the opening on the side for the bag of golf clubs?
Interesting business name in the first photo: "Tire Tower." In some parts of my home state (Kentucky), that would be pronounced "Tar Tar."
I loves those vintage women, I do. Great pics.

I appears it might be about a 1929 Buick Roadster.
Vintage pics of cars and women in the 20's and early 30's.
Yes the girl washing that sport roadster can wash my T anytime. Wait a minute anybody can wash my T anytime.
Wow, I love that second photo. That's a 1929 26S! My first antique car was this one. Can't tell the colors on this one, mine was a deep maroon with black aprons and fenders and Argent Cream insert... would have looked just the same as this one in a b/w photo!
Mine had a gorgeous stainless Mercury Boy Mascot (dealer accessory) and "Buick" script windwings (also dealer option).
The 26-S had that little golf club door and the rear had a "dickey" seat (Buick refused to suggest anything on one of their cars would "rumble"). It was a coupe with two doors (not counting the golf door). All four windows opened (on cranks... windshield, rear, both doors) as did the two cowl ventilators. It had mechanical brakes.
It could get up above 65 mph in under a minute and stop in less than a day. I used to have a nightly nightmare that with my wife beside me some yahoo would cut in in front of me and stop. The nightmares stopped the day I sold the car.
I double that girl had to wash many cars.
I may have miss-spoken... Check with Erick Barrett, he's the expert. There is a top iron so this is indeed a roadster. That would make it a 29-24 or a 29-44. It looks like the small series , 29-24... pretty rare! I think it is not the McLaughlin variant made in Canada (shown below is a Mc Laughlin 29-44). Note the extgra molding running down the side which I don't remember the U.S. cars having... definitely not the coupes.
terry! if you are talking about the nob above the golf door it is not for roadster top, to far back. I would say for landau irons. charley
