Can't quite make out what make these are.

Maxwells?

These appear to be Model N and S Runabouts with a Model S Roadster on the right hand side. The presence of the Model S Roadster suggests that this image was made in 1908.

Respectfully submitted,

Trent Boggess

They look like Maxwells.

Picture is not really clear or sharp. But I think they are Maxwalls. 1910 through '12 two cylinder models A AA and AB all look very similar. A Maxwell expert could probably tell the difference. I know several people that have some of that series. Every time I try to guess one from another I hear things like "No, no, so and so's is a model AA, mine is an AB!"
Those don't look quite like NRS radiators to me. Sorry Trent!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The hood, cowl and springs certainly are like the 2-cylinder Maxwells (and not at all like the NRS Fords); however, the radiator filler neck is too tall on 3 of the cars.

A little OT Richard, Is that your Maxwell? I have an 11 that I'm working on.

No John. Mine is a 1915.
Thanks

John, where did you find that picture? I ask because that was taken just down the road from where I live and was mentioned by locals when I was looking for parts for my 1917 Maxwell. The car still exists in much the same condition but I've yet to see it. Here is another photo I found online taken in 1941 of the same car.

They are Maxwells. Notice the full elliptic front springs and lack of a Ford NRS water pump.
