Reminds me of a guy I knew who lived up on a hill in a log cabin when I was high school age [1972]. He drove to town in a T runabout with a little dog in the seat. His car was tattered like this one.

Interesting that the left pump is Texaco, and the right one is Indian Gas. From the pumps, would this be 50's?

It was still able to get to the pump. Even if it looked bad.

And by god he keeps his tires pumped up!
Oop, he's headed inside to get some oil.
He'll pay the alien in the suit after. :-)
Cool photo! Thank you!

That reminds me of when I was growing up. I recognized several Model T's in the neighborhood. There were two tourings which went by our house every day. One with a good looking top and the other had a top hanging in shreds, but still up. There were also center doors and coupes. The vegetable man had a roadster pickup with a canopy over it and a scale hanging on the corner. He used to cut a wedge out of a watermelon for a sample. In the summer at night when I was laying in bed with the window open, I could hear the cars pulling out of the stop sign. It was up a slight grade and I could tell what kind of car it was by the sound of the engine. The Model T's had their own distinct sound, as did the Model A's. The Plymouth had it's own sound as did the early V8. The Chevy had a different sound. These days I can't tell the difference in sound between the modern cars and they look so much alike I need to look at the logo to tell what kind it is!

"I look at the logo and still don't know what make it is."

Ain't THAT the truth!

All the Asian cars went with the logo in a circle. Mazda's was so indistinguishable that it cost them financially until people could figure out what it was. Engine sounds were unique until manufacturers added catalytic converters and resonators in addition to the muffler. I hope to hear our T make real noise one day, if for no other reason.
