She will probably find it easier to remove the tire if she uses a jack.:-)

She found that out . . .

What make is the car ? Anyone ?

I'm pretty sure it's a Dodge.

Clues:

distinct fender
high headlight
five lug rim
bulbous hubcap

Henry, she's on the ball. It's much easier to loosen the lug bolts while the car is still on the ground.

Allan from down under.

She could also be finishing putting the new tire on, since it's neither jacked up nor flat. And, as Allan says, it would be easier to TIGHTEN the bolts with the wheel on the ground, too. Of course, she might just be posing for a cute picture!

Six lugs on that rim (one behind her hand)

At least she's posing for a cute picture. There was one girl changing a tire and it was pretty racy for 1936, and not the car. At least the song was from 1936, I found the pics on a you tube video by Cliff Carlisle

Gil's the one who's on the ball ! Position of her right hand indicates she's probably tightening the lugs, and she probably didn't change that tire, the pose might have been a reminder for drivers to give their cars a "pre-flight check" regularly . . . and it IS a cute picture !

(I think Erik's right - it's a Dodge !)

Some DB wheels had 6 lugs. Taper of radiator shell makes me think about 1918.

I don't think it would have been to hard for her to get help changing it.

Probably learning to drive. It used to be part of learning to drive that you had to know how to change a tire.no cell phones or AAAA for help

She looks to be of "substance"..nice dress (of course, they only wore dresses then), very nice wool coat with no doubt real fur collar, probably patent leather gloves.

Corey, this is for you:

as seen on Facebook.

Bill, That was the other picture in the slideshow on you tube. One video of the same song just shows a record label, it says Montgomery Ward, electrically recorded then something about not for radio broadcast. Maybe they couldn't play The Nasty Swing on the air? Cliff Carlisle sounded a lot like Jimmie Rodgers. I guess I start my music listening in the Model A era with Jimmie in 1928.

I did have a biography of Jimmy with a picture of him first starting out in a brass T loaded with stuff. Already an old car by 1927, but I gave the book back. I found him with a fancy Model A.
