    Anyone know what this car was originally?

    I hate this current rat rod trend. It's really sad that orphan closed cars from the '30s are turned to rods. Restorods would have been more OK, I know it's not worth it with all that body supporting wood. But I would be happy driving a six-cylinder (= non Ford!) mid-'30s sedan than a much later sought-after collector car.

    A 1920 hot rod? Gow job?

    There was at least one aftermarket speedster body for Model T with exactly that radiator, perhaps it's a Morton & Brett? http://www.coachbuilt.com/bui/m/morton_brett/morton_brett.htm

    European car 1913-20???

    Puch Alpenwagen had still RHD in 1920-22.

    European car 1913-20???

    Not a Steyr, production started with Typ II in 1920 and they were also pioneers of central gear level and parking brake. I myself was more thinking about another Austrian, Puch. But the same problem arises, the Alpenwagen from 1913 seems to have get a V radiator only in 1919 to my knowledge.

    Ca. 1924 Star made by Durant, marketed in some countries as Rugby?

    Named after General Anthony Wayne (1745-1796) according to an ad from 1908.

    Unknown limo

    Googled Canadian Pacific R.R. station Victoria yesterday and came up with this intriquing photo: https://www.gettyimages.fi/detail/news-photo/canadian-pacific-station-victoria-british-columbia-canada-news-photo/463967315?esource=SEO_GIS_CDN_Redirect#canadian-pacific-station-victoria-british-columbia-canada-c1920s-picture-id463967315 Isn't it the same car in the picture?

    This one is labelled Hollywood Boulevard circa 1903

    Yes, Pope-Toledo very muck like the somewhat smaller tan coloured rear-entrance tourer Gustaf LM Ericsson, son of the Swedish telephone-pioneer, had. That car is included in the by Ny tidning för idrott printed automobile register of Stockholm, dated 1 October 1905. https://digitaltmuseum.se/021016300093/automobil-med-passagerare-utanfor-gustaf-lm-ericssons-automobilfabrik-vid

    Jno Brown Model 650 Saferay Headlight, circa 1915-20... From what?

    Information about Jno Brown headlights on Model T forum, could be of interest: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/322179.html?1353110373 and the Company's catalogue from 1924: http://www.cimorelli.com/mtdl/1924/1924jno_brown.pdf

    What make and year?

    I feel that I must comment on that, in 1982 a classmate of mine said that the car of the President of Finland was a Chevrolet! Probably the finest US car he could think of, but after all he had quite recently been transfered from a small village school to my bigger one

    Junk car in Sweden in 1927

    Browsing on the net I found the site bildarkiv.kamerareportage.se Searched for car related photos, mainly from the pre-1930 days. The most intriguing was the remains of a landaulette photographed in July 1927 in Gothenburg. http://bildarkiv.kamerareportage.se/fotoweb/Preview.fwx?position=21&archiveType=ImageFolder&sorting=ModifiedTimeAsc&search=skrot&fileId=A5CBD948DC33DEFCB958D15A9B1860B82F3C6E5A7650582ADEFD7DCD5B5DBC33BF05A508DB124E8CE9653849AC9DE3C020F41CA805891B13A2E1449C2E71971165910AEEF6324191463A846F8B24225AAE914CF49138CE2A14598E568348388B0F5D00AD3063E95CA561A94E3B93C57F802840B5681AEFC0#.Wilf0VVl_IU
