A highly desirable 1917 or 18 sedan - notice the sidelamps.
If it were mine, I would ditch the aftermarket demountables and put the factory issued (and much cuter) clinchers back on the car.
I wonder about the silver wheel hub in picture #3.
Glad to see you posting Jay!
Is #4 a Ford?
I think that you would have put the demountables back on after changing tires on the road a few times. Demoutables were a great luxury at the time when tires and tubes were not as reliable. A flat could be changed in minutes instead of a hour or more, keeping you from being late to church and clean as well.
The reason I would put the clinchers back on is I think demountables are ugly, especially five lug aftermarket.
Stock 1917 and 1918 centerdoor sedans are cuter than 1919 through 1923 centerdoors because of the 30 x 3 tires up front and the lack of demountables.
Notice all the tires on that car are nearly flat, when you changed a tire on a clincher on the road, you aired them up with a hand pump, and it looks like cute cars had insufficient air in their tires.

We missed you Jay! Always love seeing the old pictures even though I seldom comment on them.
Steve Tomaso has a set of those after market shiny hub caps maybe he will post a picture.
Great old photos Jay,....as always. Not sure the fourth photo down is of a Ford however. Still a great photo tho',......harold
Like these "shiny's" - I must have been a crow or something in a previous life - love the "shiny" stuff !
I like the flower vase, in the center door that Steve posted. You don't see many of them in cars.
I have one sitting in a drawer, in the house. Was going to put it in the wife's '27 Tudor Sedan, but had to sell the car for some of her med's last year.
