Could that be my runabout? I don't think it is a wide track.
Interesting headlamp lens covers?
That license plate was used for four years in Califunny, '16 through '19. This one appears to have the "bear" tab on it which makes it a 1916. 1917 changed the tab to a poppy, '18 was a bell, 1919 ended the blue on white porcelain plate run with a star shaped metal tab. After that, 1920 onward, Califunny used stamped steel plates. The colors changed almost every year, and the size changed several times over the next hundred years (almost now), although settling for the federal mandated standardized size in 1956. Steel was replaced by aluminum off and on again about 1970.

Hmmm. I seem to be rambling. Anyway, the license plate indicates a 1916 photo. The brass trim on the lamps indicate a true '15.
Nice picture! Have to bookmark this one.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

I really should be working instead of "driving" Topango Canyon on Google Maps!
