With the discussion recently about variations in E and J headlights I thought that this would be a good example to show.

Neat photo. Are both front rims bent or is it just a photo distortion?

Herb, what recent discussion? I did a keyword search for the last 30 days and found this and one other (lights for sale). I have E and Js on my 14 with no number on them and am trying to find out more. Thanks.

Yes, that is a Metz model 22. probably 1912 to '14, and most likely 1913 (standard) roadster. It does not have a stock gasoline tank for the standard roadster (it was smaller, oval, and mounted onto the back of the seat). The 1913 Metz special roadster had a similar tank (to this one), but totally different cowl (much more open) and slightly lower seat. In 1914, the special roadster was replaced by a model simply called the speedster (and you thought we created that!). There were several minor differences plus the speedster came standard with wire wheels (special roadster was wood standard), and the car came standard painted orange. The special roadster was red and black.
The standard Metz roadster (which I think this is with a larger gasoline tank) was usually a dark blue body and fenders over cream/yellow wheels and chassis. It is difficult to tell in this black and white photo, but I do think that is the colors this one is.
Great photo! I love it!
Thank you.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
