Neat picture. If I knew how to do thought balloons I'd add the following:


HE: "Now if only I can learn to drive this thing."

SHE: "Sure hope he learns to drive this thing before he kills us both."

Bud, I was wondering how you decided they'd have trouble seeing after dark. Then I figured you said it because, unless I'm mistaken, the car should have what I think is referred to as a carbide generator. I'm not all that knowledgeable about gas lighting.

Then I realized, where they're going to be after dark may not be that important to them. At any rate, not to him.

Likely the horn tubing bracket was the early style with the long stem and he knocked it off with his knee.

Headlamps do appear to be electrified. Difficult to be certain in a photo from this angle. However, the only reflector in a typical 1912 to '14 T headlamp is the mirror way at the back of the lamp. Some earlier and non-T lamps had a partial reflector to help focus the light beam right on the backside of the door. But on a T of that vintage, there should be no reflection from inside the door at this angle. At this angle, we could be seeing light reflecting off the front of the glass, but it generally doesn't show quite how it does here unless there is something really bright behind the car just out of the field of the camera.
These look like internal reflectors (I think I can make out the reflection of the ground in the top half of the reflector!). Some, not all, headlamp electrification kits from that era did have reflectors moved forward to right behind the glass door.
Battery is probably in the trunk or in that nifty tool slot behind the gasoline tank.
Great picture! I love it. Thank you all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
