While searching for a modern photo, I came across this. Interesting way to tow!

The cars both look like they are the first 2500 model Ts. They both have the 3 tier E&J side lights. The very early windshields(not all 09s had windshields). A Jones model 20 speedometer. The rear axles are the early no rivet type with the straight axle hubs. It seems as if the babbitt pinion bearing may have failed on the car with the wheel borrow under the rear axle. That was a common problem with the 1909 cars.

I always enjoy these. The good ones can pop up as often as they like.

I have seen the pic on here before but it's pretty cool. I like the wheelbarrow they look to be using as a Jack stand.. lol back in the day. Looks as dangerous in 2017 as it should have to them... Tim
