I'm talking about the second car in the photo.
What do you think?
Maybe it's this car, found this pic on the web:
Depending on where you start counting, that could be the "second car" but I think Herb is talking about the one on the far right.
I think the second photo is the front car in the first photo. It looks like the same signs are on the back.
The car in the first photo on the far right does look like it could be a torpedo or open runabout. Notice the upright support for the sloped back windshield. The gals in back could be sitting on the gas tank or some platform rigged up over it for them to sit upon.
The front are in the first photo, and the car in the second photo looks about like this car currently listed on T-bay:
Although it has a bunch of incorrect stuff, would be fun to have.
As always, cool pictures, Herb. Thanks for sharing.

I'm sorry I wasn't clear in my first post in this thread.
Since the two cars that have the white decoration on them appear to be in a parade I was calling them the first and second cars.
The other car seems to be parked on the side of the road.
It's remarkable that Mark found another photo of what I would call the first parade car. Look at the steering wheel in the photo Mark posted and the first white car I posted. They both appear to have a non-Ford steering wheel.
The hidden Torpedo has the zig zag windshield with the support bars under it and it looks like the steering wheel is laying lower than a normal Model T would, which is what a Torpedo would be like.
The "second" car also has curved fenders, front and rear. Looks like it could be a 1911 torpedo to me. I can't really say for sure whether it is enclosed or open on the side however. I suspect that it is one of the open runabouts that had the same longer hood and steering column and curved fenders as the torpedo. I just don't know for sure. But it looks like the windshield brace extends a bit far down for the enclosed side torpedo.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Open Runabouts and Torpedos use the same windshield brace.
I vote Torpedo. If you zoom in you can see on the side of the car a sign attached and above that are more flowers running about level with the top of the hood, as does a Torpedo body tub. If it were an Open Runabout there wouldn't be anything there to which the flowers could be attached unless they wrapped the opening in chicken wire, or some such.
I wonder how many of the same people are in those two photos. That woman in the back seat has to be the same in both.
Here's a picture of the other side of the front car:
I can only imagine how bad the paint looked after removing all that stuff from it. Wonder how they made it all stick? Looks like a bunch of pillow feathers.
