Umm, cake? I think it would probably like a quart or so of oil...but cake?

Congratulations all the same, nice looking car. :-)

Jeff, That is a 1912 Flanders. Very similar to the E-M-F made across the street from the Piquette Plant.

A Flanders, huh? I had an EMF once, and have seen Flanders touring cars, but never a roadster. Walter Flanders was credited with developing the moving assembly line for Ford. Thanx, Jeff

Wasn't Northern built in that plant before the EMF? I have a 1903 Northern, designed & built by Jon Maxwell and Charles King. The Dodge Bros built the chassis for Northern, as well as the early 2 cylinder Fords and some Olds & Cadillac chassis too.

Jeff, you're right. I believe it was the Northern plant, then the Wayne plant, then Everett-Metzger-Flanders (E-M-F) plant and finally the Studebaker plant. A lot of factories changed names / owners in that period. The Aerocar factory on Mack Avenue (Alexander Malcomson's company after he was kicked out of Ford) became the Hudson Motor Car Company factory.

I don't know about Walter Flanders and the moving assembly line, but he is credited with being one of the first industrial engineers. He organized and arranged the production equipment to make the work more efficient. This is how Ford set a record of producing 101 Model Ns in one day. Pretty good for station assembly.
