Jay, I LOVE all the pictures you post but I think this one is my favorites.....real life....looks like a '14 with replacement fenders, no bulb horn (replaced w/ "signal" horn). I just finished reading the Emigrant series of books and the Swedes were very fond of sending pictures from America back home to Sweden.

Interesting aftermarket fenders. Yet another example of an early car kept in use and updated: those fenders, the horn, and electrified head lamps. It has H & D Shocks as my car has. I am a bit surprised by the one spare tire unless he has changed out the front wheels.

Pictures such as this one have caused me to wonder for how long some brass cars were kept in use as daily drivers before being cut down into pickup trucks, tractors (doodlebugs), or the engine pulled to use as a power unit.

Jay, thank you for yet another wonderful photograph.

It does look like the tires are the same size Bill. Dave

Some of the tires have white-ish sidewalls, apparently common in the mid through late '10s. With the dirt roads of the day, those whitewalls often are hidden behind the dust so much that they cannot be seen. However, more and more, as I look at pictures from the late '10s and early '20s, I do spot them.
Just a minor detail that interests a few of us really crazies.
Very interesting car, fenders, and photo! Thank you all.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
