If there was a driver in that car I am sure when the photo was taken he was already a was.

Other than the hats and side curtains it looks like rush hour here in Denver most days!

This photo is Evil Kenevil's grandfather entertaining the locals by jumping ditches with his car. After his funeral the family decided to use motorcycles. :-)

Apparently this was common for 1914. Both pictures show very little damage. Could these have been staged events?

That happened to my grandpa in 1926 when he and my uncle drove from Los Angeles to the east coast and back in a Model T. A lot of people came around and stared at it. Grandpa said something like this (maybe more politely) "Don't just stand there, help me put it back on the road!" They picked it up and set it on it's wheels and grandpa and uncle Bob got in and thanked them and went on their way!

The second picture looks like an almost new car based on the clean appearance and the gloss of the paint on the side of the body. Also, the underside of the rear fender looks clean.

If it was a new driver in a new Ford the first 20 miles could be the most hazardous. I think most of us can remember our first drive in a Model T vividly.
