Looks like a Model 32 Hupp on the left.

The one radiator has a policeman as a cap topper and a dual lift jack set up under the front axle as well as an anti-kicvk back above the crank.

We have a 1914 Model 32 Hupp roadster that has been in our family since 1958. The one in picture is a touring. Neat picture.

I don't think that's a anti-kick device.

It just holds the crank up when not in use - to keep it from dragging in the mud, etc. Put the handle at 12 o'clock and flip that bracket forward.

Note the spinning wheel.

That device could be a non-Ford version of an Oakes Crank-Lok. Anti-theft device - insert crank, lower double fingers over handle & install padlock.

Have one on our '14 Touring.

That left front wheel is spinning. LOOK OUT!!!
I don't recognize the second car. That rear spring and single friction shock seem unusual.

Jay has pulled another great one out of the Hat.

I'm pretty sure that the second car is another Model 32 Hupp. The have a transverse spring and that funky link to the pumpkin.

Both model 32 Hupps. Electric headlamps likely mean '13/'14 maybe '15 (lamps could have been changed?). The other one has an electric tail lamp.
I can't tell anything from the license plate other than that they are not from Califunny. I don't know when that policeman cap-topper came out, but this is about the earliest picture of one I have ever seen.
Both cars do look like they could be a couple years old.
Great photo Jay! Thanks all!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I was thinking there is no question who the boss man is but, it almost looks like there is a police badge on the front of his pants. That would indicate the car with the policeman topper is his. Anyone else here see a badge?

I see what you're talking about Dave, but I think it's a watch fob.
