Thought I would try to take a picture of a document with my camera and see how it post. This is the title of a center door sedan that I once owned in terrible condition. apparently car dealers were not all honest in the past. From the engine number and many unique parts on the T it was clearly a 1920. If you can read it the dealer wrote that it is a 1922. I bet that this happened a lot with buyers that bought used cars without knowing the differences.
Steve is not the only one it bothers!!! ha ha

The only thing you did wrong is you should always have a hard return after the text, before the image. Mr. Jelf will send you to detention for this. But do not worry, you will not be the only one there.
hummmm. hard return what you talking about!!!!!!!!!!!! charley
At the end of your typing, hit Enter twice. This will give you a space between the typing and the picture. PK
Nah, what really gets Steve going is when text mysteriously appears after the picture, usually at the bottom, or often to one side or the other. I can't blame him there, actually. And goodness knows, I've tried and tried to eliminate that and it just keeps doing it quite a bit. Can't seem to figure it out.
Hitting the enter key at the end of your sentence, paragraph, or each photo, is the same thing as hitting the return lever/handle on the old mechanical typewriters and "slamming the carriage back to the left side of your letter (or forum post today) Does anyone remember the old mechanical typewriters By hitting the enter key twice it moves the picture to the left side of the post and spaces it two lines down. That way the typing is by itself and/or the pictures line up on the left side in a easier to view layout. (Chris, see I was paying attention)
Rather then start another thread - I wanted to let people know I finally found an iPhone - iPad app that will reduce the size of an image for the forum.
As I looked at the title, I think it was last updated Aug 24, 1978 is that correct? And if so, it might have actually been a 1922 Centerdoor that had the engine replaced sometime in the past with the engine serial number listed on the engine logs for May 12, 1920.
In many states, if I change the engine out, I need to report that and have the title updated to reflect the new engine number. But the year of the car would remain unchanged.
Do you happen to remember if the Centerdoor had the window lift straps or the latches with the notches on each side of the window for the latches to fit into? What about the metal covering over the wood around the windows on the outside of the body? And did it have the "L" shaped door handle or the earlier "T" or the later "L" handle. There was a period of overlap -- but the window latches, "L" handle, and metal cover on the window wood indicate a 1922 rather than a 1920. And an early 1922 could have all the 1920 features. But it is just a thought.
Thank you for posting the document.

Hap the last action was 1942 I also have the last registration slip for it. Many things like bail handles and lift straps for windows identify it as 1920. If you look in the postings for a few days back you can see the car now. It is owned by Les Sumpner.
Looks OK to me, but you might get a clearer image with a scanner.
not sure about Mich. but Ill. didint have titles until 1934 all you had was a bill of sale. I think a lot of people made there car a year or two newer thinking it was worth more. I have seen many titles with the year wrong
This title was issued in 1928. and I just wanted to see if taking a photo with my cheap Nikon camera and posting it would work. This cheap camera can be set to take the size picture that will post on this forum.
Jim, sent you a private message. Les Sumner
Jim -- Thanks. And since the body was/is also 1920 then it appears the year was wrong.
And a link to the photos of the before and after of the 1920 Centerdoor (scroll down to photos) is: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/588754.html?1448491207 .
It is neat how the forum can help folks track down information and history about their cars.
