Great photo! It's no wonder he needed that fancy fender brace if he made a habit of sitting on the fender like that.

From the looks of those Joshua trees in the background, they've made it to Califony. That's the major disappointment -- Californy is mostly desert and probably not as nice as where they came from.

Photos like this one, and finding the occasional old TT farm truck in a shed are
what drew me to this iconic image of Americana.

Is the fender sitter about 6'5" and 300lbs of NBA star material in a giant hat ???

Texas - 1931 the way I see it. The hat would fit in too.

I would say 1937.

I believe that 1937 is the only year that the Texas farm truck plate with "farm" on a diagonal had light digits over a dark background.

Could be a seven. And would fit into the Great Depression and Dust Bowl time frame. The photo captures the look of discouragement from that era.

My folks moved to California when they got married in 1936. Mom told of heading west with her head filled with tourism pictures of orange trees and vast fields of wildflowers. Crossing the river at Needles and seeing reality showed her that those pictures didn't apply to the whole state.
