Interesting dress, interesting wheels, interesting shoes. In short, interesting.

What brand of wheels, anybody?

Wouldn't you love to have that car with the wire wheels on it?

Richard,

I was thinking of the same quote! :-)

Personal aesthetic, I think 30" wire wheels look better on center-doors than they do on touring cars. Once again, Jay thank you for all the pictures !! Keep 'em coming ! (I don't know how you do it - my fear is you'll run out at some point)

Henry, with all the differences in forum folks from all walks of life and parts of the world it is amassing how similar some things and thoughts are.

Jerry, should that be, interesting shoe,
instead of "interesting shoes?????"

Hmmmmm. Same old oil spots on the ground that we have today...

Rich B. I worried about Jay running out of photos a few years and several hundred pictures ago. He never ceases to amaze me. And there are others who manage to find these things too.
Aren't we Lucky?
Rich E.

Rich E., if I had to choose one single thing that I found "best" about the forum, it would be the old photos. They are very often a springboard for discussing details for authenticity, technical issues, and interesting accessories, besides history, geography, other items of interest (like flying saucers) and often just plain silly fun that gives us all a good laugh !!

Even better is the chance to learn a little about the other makes and models that shared the road with model Ts.

Imagine how different our hobby would be if the camera had not been invented. Cars and cameras got popular at the same time and cars made for good photo ops. Lucky us.

Joe,

Oh my gosh! Didn't even notice. Hope she's got the other one tucked up there somewhere.

I guess her name is Eileen :-) and it only takes her 1/2 the time to put her shoes on

Those are Spranger wheels. I have a bunch of them hanging on the wall of my shop.

Cool car and she doesn't look happy. Maybe she knew she still had to split wood. Tim

She's pretty much got low/high and possibly reverse taken care of. I hope that hand brake is adjusted properly.

I don't mean to be crude by calling out this ladies issues but, it looks to me like her left hand may be deformed. That being said, stepping on the starter would be difficult and cranking with her left hand would be tough too. Do you suppose she's just standing there waiting for someone to either bring her a conveyance to the house or she's waiting for a driver to take her somewhere.

Her left hand is fine. The thumb is next to her body and only part of it can be seen. The index and middle fingers are bent at the joints in a normal manner and the other two fingers are hidden. Her right leg from the knee is on the running board. Just a pose for the picture. She is fine and would be able to crank or use the starter, and brake. You can see the shadow of her right shoe.

No Norman, I don't agree. I'm not saying your wrong. But by agreeing I'll destroy the bull crap story I was going to make-up that would cause us all to look at this mysterious beauty in a different light. I'd already started the cast of characters including a young, barnstorming Charles Lindbergh, Warren G Harding before 1918, World War One and the South of France and Sergeant Adolph Hitler. But instead she's become some farm girl from Wisconsin that died in her forties from food poisoning.

Did I mention, the original story was going to include a walk-on cameo by none other than Corporal Alvin York.

To think what might have been.

Mike,

I'll wait for the movie.

Tim,

Thanks for the I.D. on the wheels. Wish I could say I've got a few "hanging around"!
