Charley,

The wire wheels on the Model T roadster help narrow it down just a little more to Jan 1926 or later for the car.

Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/U-Z.htm#wheels Wire wheels, introduced in January 1926 in black only at first, then in several colors, became optional.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I'm confused (which isn't hard to do). The sign says $1.oo wash open...$1.50 closed. Are they referring to the style of car? They charge $.50 more for a hard top or enclosed car.

Yeh Dennis...my first mili-second thought was, an extra 50 cents when the car wash is closed!?!...then I realized they meant Touring, vs. closed cars. LOL...but, ya know, $1 back then was quite a bit of money to have your car washed, I think. Cripes, if I work fast enough (which I can't anymore) I could do my car at the U-do-it for a buck.

Debate about the year of the Roadster and the price of a car wash, I want to know more about the "Bathing Suit Parade".

Too late! You missed the parade by about 85 years!
