Nice pic. Well worn car, sagging front bow, missing hubcap, paint is ratty as heck. Love those pumps! Thanks as always, Jay.

Judging from the whole scene, including the other car which looks nearly new, the Model T would be about a '23, maybe about 12 years old or so, right? Wonder what made that front top bow sag (or warp) like that?

Yet another really great photo Jay,.....harold

4 cent tax on a 13 cent price ..... let's do the math here ... 30.7% tax rate.

I wonder what fuel taxes paid for in 1935 ?

I figure the taxes paid for roads, like today, except where politicians raid the highway fund to cover their mismanagement. (Are you listening, Kansas?) In the thirties we were still in the massive road building movement that began in the teens.

Steve, I don't know much about Kansas politicians but here in California we have Governor Jerry Brown spending our tax dollars on his crazy train to no where and other such things. We have some of the worst maintained roads in the nation. I'm a retired California highway engineer and hated to see the day Brown became governor again in 2010.

Here in NJ they just raised the gas tax 23 cents a gallon, the people were outraged! At the polls one of the questions to vote on was to make sure that the gas tax was ONLY to go to the transportation trust fund for road work, so the politicians cant raid it to cover their mismanagement.
But I'm sure they will figure out some loophole to grab that money.

Doug, I think in Ohio we're paying something like 40-44 cents per gal. tax. Reason I can't remember, is it's so high, I don't WANT TO remember!!
