I usually don't have a problem knowing what a early car is but this one I'm not sure. This is on hcca southern Ontario regions site. It is only tour in the 1958 Glidden tour, with model K Fords. https://plus.google.com/photos/109483436555479908882/albums/5767463433654245601/ 5769274879787752242?banner=pwa&pid=5769274879787752242&oid=109483436555479908882

Never heard of a Jennis before - it looks more like 1906 - 1907 to me though.

There were two Model K's on the 1958 Glidden tour, both 1907 - 1908 models. Henry Austin Clark had his touring:


And this 1907 - 8 roadster:

The Jennis is a spectacular automobile-I've seen it a few times. They built 2 of them simultaneously-starting in 1903 and finishing them in 1905. They were built in Philadelphia.

I looked in the 1968 AACA automobile registry and it lists L R Biondi as the owner at that time. I presume it's Louis "Lou" Biondi.

Kinda glad I asked about this car! It is an amazing car that I wish was covered more than it has been. I would imagine that both cars survived, no that would be luck. Maybe someone should tell Hemmings to cover these special and interesting early cars. I have been trying to get them to write more about Americas pioneers for a long time.

Louis Biondi had a Jennis in Connecticut that he restored. Unless it is the one in your picture it must have been the second one so they both survived
