What a great picture, thanks for posting it!
Yes it is a great pic! Thanks too. And look at those houses what we can see... wow!
Thanks, Herb ! 1918 plate from where ? Radiator badge seems to be "CAC" California ? Colorado ? Connecticut ? Automobile Club ?
Great picture. Shows the correct top to windshield visor. This is very confusing on the top installation literature. This piece is seen as a hanging curtain arrangement on too many otherwise well restored cars. Thanks for posting.
Look how big the rain flap is on the front of the top. The ones we get today aren't like that.
I believe it is an Ohio plate.
Ah ! Yes. Ohio. That would be an "O" on the radiator badge then ? Thanks Rich !!
That could be Akron, Ohio. The only thing missing is the black soot you woke up to every morning. My grandparents lived in Goodyear Heights just off Brittain Road. When I was young, the family visited during the holidays about every third year. Every morning the cars were covered in a black soot and you could smell the rubber in the air. Used to love that smell. By the 1980s, the smell was gone and so was most of Goodyear.
The rain flap on that top is not factory issue for a 1915 Ford. Someone has added it to the car.
A factory rain flap was not included on roadster and touring tops until around 1920 according to McCalley.
Thanks for that info, Erik.
HA !!! I said that about Steve on FaceBook. lol
Great picture Herb!
Shoot, I didn't notice the gauntlets on his glove to keep his wrists warm...
Did anyone mention or notice the spotlight?
