Looks like a 1909 EMF. The plate is probably 1912.
Dig someone tell you you're really good at identifying old cars, Chris? ;)
Rose Bowl float??
Roger-thanks-I do enjoy it.
Tim-I don't think so, the license plate is from Alabama.
The headline on the newspaper should read..."When the brakes failed on Mr. Magoo's car he lost control and he and the children ended up in the city Petunia patch, luckily no one was injured."
However Mrs. Smith, the president, of the local garden club did attempt to punch Mr. Magoo shortly after the accident
What do you suppose is the cylindrical object that's hanging down just in front of the left front wheel?
Make that the left rear wheel.... I haven't finished my coffee yet...
Keith: A water bag?
Is this what gave them the idea for Rose Bowl parade floats?
Mark's right. It's a leather mud flap that hangs down from the back of the front fenders.
Thanks, guys! We learn something new every day....
The age requirements for a driver's license were more tolerant back then.
