I wish Darel would (again) post his before and after pictures and story about his 1910 Model T.(needs to date the later picture) I thought it was so interesting. Newer member to the Forum may have never seen it.
As I remember, in the earlier and later picture, the family members were seated or stood in the same places.
If Darel has lost his pictures, I can send him copies that I grabbed from a post many many years ago including the story.
I recently found a photograph of Darel Leipold's 1910 touring taken in 1937, taken long before he purchased the car in 1946.
I was at a Twin Cities thrift store and I spotted a 1938 University of Minnesota yearbook so I decided to browse through it.
I kid you not, but when I opened the yearbook, the very first page I landed on had a picture of a Model T taken during the 1937 homecoming festivities. I immediately recognized it as being Darel's 1910 touring so I purchased the yearbook.
When I got home, I went on the Minnesota Historical Society website and searched for photos related to the 1937 U of M Homecoming and found a photo of the homecoming parade, which included Darel's car, taken in downtown Minneapolis.
A week or two later I saw Darel, put the yearbook in front of him and had him look at the Model T on page 40. He immediately recognized it as his car. Darel had never before seen the yearbook or parade photos; he now has possession of the yearbook.
See photos below.
