I got a feeling that the old girl isn't going home, Rather a one way trip to a bone yard.

Looks like they are headed round back of the garage with the proper parts and some extras to get her back on all 4
Optimism!

The '16 touring has what looks like four wheels in the back seat and the front axle. I wonder if it had been stuck in a field or abandoned for some time before these greasers picked it up? Also looks like a Minnesota plate on the '16.

It appears they removed the front axle to install some sort of pivoting bar that allows the earlier runabout to tow other cars. A very effective towing setup. Judging by the condition of the T this must be early 1920's at least.

I'm surprised that the Model 10 Buick, no later than 1910, is in as good shape as it for the use to which it's being put.

A quick search turned up a Sandager and Hegdal Hardware in Belview, Minnesota.

To add to Lance's post - the license plate is a Minnesota 1918-19-20.

well at least the Model T has it's steering wheel on the right side (oops, I meant correct side). Just kidding with all my friends in Canada, down under and Europe.

Happy motoring,

Warren

The tow car appears to be a 1910 Buick model 10.

With an electric headlight setup.

Missing the right rear tire and it is dragging a strap or something. Would be a great restoration project, maybe!

The Buick's headlights look like a pair they stole off the last Ford they drug back, though those lights are early forked electrics..
