Except that it was not in 1914. The car has a cowl and louvered hood typical of 1915 models. The gas lights would be a retrofit. The painted body highlight is typical of Tarrant Motors cars, Tarrant's being the Ford agents for Victoria.

If that were a 13 with 6 adults the doors would be popping open!
Canadian cars were right-hand drive?

Not the reaction I expected? The point was Model T's could go where no other brands could go but the only things spotted are the model year, the number of people and where the handle bars are located.
I found the signage interesting, am I the only one?
Just that kinda day Kevin.
Kinda feel that way about my F350 CC Dually
as far as dependability .....
Thanks for posting
It is a great photo for a few reasons, thanks for posting.
Who ARE those characters ?, when was this photo taken ? Agree that it is not 1914 so when exactly was it and I wonder why they retrofitted the headlamps ?
It looks like the "sign" was added after the photo was taken (I think I can see the lines off the trees behind it)
Where did you find it ?
It looks like the tires have been retouched to appear that they are in the mud when they aren't. You can see a ghost of tire before it was retouched. And where are the tracks that the tires would have made?
Thank you Kevin W! It is a wonderful picture of a very non-standard model T (at least, to most of the world). I knew instantly that it was an Australian version, by the coloring, RHD, and the lamps, for a '15/'16.
The advertising spin on the circumstances is also quite interesting!
Again, thank you.
As for the editing a post? I have successfully managed to edit one of my error stricken comments, maybe three or four times. The rest are out there forever to be seen by everyone! In my mind, a small price to pay for the simple ease of this site which I would be pleased if it stayed basically like this forever!
But that is me.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
