In June 1909 the Ocean to Ocean race began from New York City. A Ford 6-40 led the procession with Ford dealer F. W. Teves driving and the race official, John H. Gerrie riding:
Is this a photo photo with Gerrie at the wheel?
Side by side comparison:
Rob.....Great comparison! Carol could pass for F. W. Tevis easily...
Nice picture, BTW.
Well Keith it was nice knowing you!! Bud.
Looks like somebody may make that motorhome his permanent home!! Jerry
Look at the left ear. In the right photo he has an ear lobe that rises. I do not see that in the left photo, so I would say different people.
You think she will let him keep the pickup, or tell Keith all he gets is the truck?
Jerry,If there is a sale,i want dibbs on that presto-lite tank!! Bud.
Sorry Guys, I meant CARL.....no "O" in it!!!
BTW, don't any of you tell Carol, or else.
Now, lets get back to the main topic....
Keith, you "sniffed it out." It is indeed Carl Pate. The first time I saw the photo of the K taken in NY, I thought Robert Gerrie, the passenger, bore a striking resemblance to Carl. Carl is the author of "Pate's Early Ford Automobile Encyclopedia." Carl was kind enough to pose with our 6-40 by the train depot at OCF.
Rob, You didn't think you could fool us with this, did you?
It is a nice comparison though.
I think Carl P needs a framed blowup of that sepia toned photo for his wall!
The car looks fantastic! I did wonder what was with the fuzziness at the back of the car? Now I know. Rob, you be sly! The effect on the three visible car tires was excellent however.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
