The doctor prescribed accessory headlights !
Looks more like a lawyer to me.
Its a doctor, I can tell by the medical bag that is locked in the trunk.
Ed- too funny, I'm laughing...
You're all wrong, he's a dentist- Dr. Pain.
If he's a lawyer, has the expression of a court-room barracuda. If he's a doctor, he may have a lousy bedside manner.
Them is gas headlights!
I think if he were a doctor or lawyer, he would be driving a more expensive car.
Mark, them ain't neither gas. Rick, so . . . a tightwad doc or shyster ?
Are those steerable headlights? Looks like linkage between the lights?
Fancy headlights and whitewalls. That must be the Model T "Medical Edition" like we recently saw for sale.
I'll vote for La Cosa Nostra accountant!
Doctors were interested in a dependable car. That was the Ford, not the "more expensive car". He made up for it by the accessories.
I agree with David J., those look like steerable headlights. Dave
That's definitely Dr. Pepper......
Well he dont use any of the above listed. He looks like still has money! Another great photo. Thank you.
It looks like J D Smudgindorf who swindled hundreds of bewildered Ford owners out of their coil boxes promising to reconstitute the vanadium flux within them. He left them stranded on the road promising to return within an hour with their improved coils. He was convicted in 1927 but escaped through an unattended whisk broom in the hallway of the county jail.
"Believe it or Not"
If he's a doctor, I vote for proctologist.
Rich, I believe you're right. The 1923 license plate shows this was Smudgindorf at his height. I wondered what he had in his hands, likely it's the phony bi-metallic crucible he used to con his marks by demonstrating a sleight-of-hand re-constitution of vanadium flux. It was actually bicarbonate of soda. He didn't last long after this picture was taken. Arrested in 1924, his first trial and subsequent appeals took three years before his escape from jail. A clean sweep, he disappeared and was never heard of again.
You realize that Google and Yahoo are on this like ants on a dead June Bug, yet Bing is clueless. I did a search, just because, on Smudgindorf and discovered that you could create a lot of fake news here if ya'll are not careful. It's still funny.
"Annoying patient can load himself in the car, I'm having a smoke break"
It's true that Smudgindorf disappeared after giving jailers the brush off. Some say he was sighted in Fargo posing as a dyslectic optometrist under an assumed name. Many of his victims are still plagued by shorts in their secondaries.
Interesting to know, Vern. Maybe there's harm in "fake history" ?? Apparently the Google bots are in need of a humor filter. I guess this means you don't want to know any further adventures of JD Smudgindorf ? ( hint : the Fargo optometrist Henry Cumberwick may have been JD under an alias)
I guess we should be careful what we post lest more prisoners escape through whisk brooms. [;o(
That would have law enforcement bristling for sure !
Uh Oh. I fear another spontaneous Pun Attack is about to spring into life !
I hope so ! Tough room !! (Don't forget to tip your waitress - we'll be here all week ! )
