  1. A late teens or early twentys Kissel Truck just loaded at the shippers depot.
  2. Triplets and a 1920 Haynes, one armed and dangerous. The second photo is a side view of the same sporty roadster with the top up.
  3. A very sporty mid 20's Pierce-Arrow with a California Top and added strips on the back of the body. It appears to be a new car that maybe the body builder or trimmer who made the top had finished and photographed before it left. The dealer would have added the spare and maybe a rack on the back along with a trunk.
  4. And to finish off the day, let's go see the Goodyear Blimp at the airport on the way back into the city.

  13. The time for the major announcement you have all been waiting for is here.

And the big announcement is that first we want to thank all of you for helping make is thread what is with all of the photos you have sent in.

  14. Early collector - NYC mechanic Charlie Stich working on Alex Ulmans Mercer before WWII.
  15. F.W. Leland practicing before one of the Briarcliff road races in NY. The Stearns looks to be a 30/60 HP model......one of the best cars of the day.
  16. My last colorized shot, a dealer handout photo of a Federal Truck with the dealer tag.
  17. Another early colorized photo of a pre Model T Ford ? The happy owner is posing out in front of the neighborhood garage for the photog. Only the body, brass and wheels were colored.
  18. An early colorized photo found in upstate NY. Only the front of the car is colored dark green w/burgundy spokes. Very handsome 40 HP sized Demi Tonneau.
  19. This Shorpy photo from the Washington DC. area looks like what it like outside of our shop in the snowy Northeast today.
  20. This a Gordon Watney Special, he was a very well know dealer - racer in England. He built and raced mostly large chain drive specials some of which were aero engined and built on double chain drive Mercedes chassis. Many of these creations were raced on the famous Brooklands track before 'its' demise during WWII. This special is incredible, read the description in the ad.
  21. Look at these two racers....... a pair of Model T based dirt track cars which look to be very professional. I wonder just what is going on in this scene ? Were they covered overnight and it blew off ? The car in the rear has a overhead valve head, not sure about the front one.
  22. A great photo that shows why they won the NY to Paris race in 1908. They followed the rules and were sportsman. The Thomas in arriving in Alaska, what a great image, study the faces.
  23. First off Happy New Year to everyone and thanks so much for supporting this new thread and sending in some wonderful photos. Keep them coming and let's see if we build this into a wonderful archive of pre WWII photos that everyone can enjoy. Can anyone help identify this 1911 - 14 Mercer Racing car ? It is one of two things, either a 24 Hr. endurance racer or possibly a desert racer. The 24 Hr. Races were popular at the time and held on dirt tracks. The Desert races were mostly from LA and ran east non stop thru the night. The add on search light has a lever so the navigator could swivel it an
