LOVE IT! But I gotta ask, did you get this picture from Bob Coiro (Spectators and funny hats)?

I thought Zoro rode a horse.

What year is this car?

I think 1911 was the only year for this body style

1912 Torpedoes looked similar, but their front fenders were flat on top like the other Fords through '16.

Can someone tell whether this is RHD car, or has the picture been reversed?

Look at the seatback, Mike - he's driving on the LH side.

I thought the body sides of a 12 Torpedo were taller

Mike-
The low angle and length of the steering column makes it look like it is on the right, but I agree it is LHD.

I can tell the negative is NOT reversed because the thumb-nut latch of the E&J headlamps are on the correct side.

Also note the speedometer drive and cable are on the left front wheel.

I guess I was looking at the Wicked Witch and the steering wheel, not the seatback. DUH!

There's lots of very light-colored mud on the undersides of the fenders. I can't make out what that is in the area of the hand crank. Is it some kind of commencer mechanism?
