It looks like the brass was shiny when new.
No headlights but a carbide generator for the spotlight.
That would seem to be inconvenient for driving and moving the light.

Couldn't afford two headlights so he bought the spotlight?

"Who would be fool enough to drive at night ?" was probably the thinking .....

Great shot! Beautiful car!
When a walking horse was traveling, what you could do in your own pair of shoes was fine for local? 15 mph on a dirt path was really flying! Not much light was needed to see where you were going. And turn-able spot lights were good for checking out stray cattle.
Thank you Herb and all!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The Model S Roadster was not introduced until March 1908. It sold very well, and about 3750 were produced, making it the second most popular car in the NRS series.

This is a 1908 car.

Respectfully submitted,

Trent Boggess
