I like the sign in the window. Any ideas on what it says? Notice too, it has the high 'F'.

Interesting that the sign is an oval.
I believe the Winded Pyramid was introduced in the March 1912 Ford Times.

The car looks to be a 1910. It has no top straps. There is a mention of Miller & Sauners here:

Word on top is "Famous". Anyone familiar with Ford using that
word in advertising ?

The firewall doesn't look like a two piece, so maybe it's a 1912?

Burger, "Famous Ford" was used early and often with Ford advertising. These two ads for a 1904 Model A and 1905 (introduced late 1904) Model B:
