The first thing that caught my eye? A brass T with wire wheels. The fact is, that was very rare in the brass era. There are probably many, many, many, more brass Ts on the road today with wire wheels than there ever were during the brass era.
Then I saw the cowl vent, and a few other details. Hello Edsel! That is the one and only most famous brass era T with wire wheels. Edsel Ford's 1915 cross country drive car.
Nice photo! Thank you Jay!
Maybe some computer wiz can clean it up a bit?
Drive carefully, and enjoy the New Year! W2

Is that Henry standing in the background on the left side?

Tony Bowker posted a lot of the photos in July 2015 from Edsel's trip, including that one, here:

I wonder why it took so long for Henry to get around to putting the cowl vent into production?

James, I have it from a good authority that it was because he was cheap! A penny here and a penny there and pretty soon you're talking big money. :-)
