Looks like a tough job to split the rear axle by the road.. - but maybe it's a movie still?

Thanks for posting Roger. At least they did not loose their hats.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Oddly enough the body looks like a 1921 or earlier style with the separate rear corner pieces and a bracket by the front seat for a two man top, but the windshield looks like the 1924/25 style. Maybe it's a Canadian car, they got the slanted windshield style already around 1920/21 - but then maybe a drivers door should be visible?

Interesting Coleman type lantern with six lens.

Tim, If you laid under the car you might have lots of lizards for company. I gets HOT in Cinco.

Not a Canadian car. It has the American style top iron saddles with straps.

'23-'25 open cars didn't come with top boots either!

Posed picture? Maybe, but why this scenario? A lot of trouble for no real reason.

These are genuine 'shade tree' repair jobs.

I think this photo has been on here before.
This might be a still from a Harold Lloyd film?
