  1. Standard motor car for sure. In the time period of the garage photo, about 1913 or so, the Standard had a unique radiator shroud that was similar to the later Minerva. The green color Standard is a 1913 Model S. The '22 Minerva has a similar looking radiator shroud but is physically larger than the Standard's.
  2. The license plates on the wall in the photo look really nice. And that reminds me, (ARGHHH) that I bought a collector car in October, submitted paperwork for a Horseless Carriage license plate and still waiting for the plate. The Court House people tell me the license plate manufacturer is closed down due to COVID. Three months down and waiting.
  3. Wow, great photo. The owner plugged two porkers with a Savage Model-99. Looks like he has a Colt New Service revolver in that cavalry holster.
  4. The photo of a Cord funeral and ambulance vehicle was posted earlier by Edinmass. Either there were/are two of the stretched Cords, or perhaps the same vehicle slightly modified. The first attached Cord is the funeral/ambulance model, the second photo shows a stretched Cord, but it has a roof rack and a radiator-mascot on the hood.
  5. The photo posted earlier (attached) looks a lot like a 1908 International auto Buggy, Model A.
  6. One method to straighten out the dents in automobile sheet metal, using an M-3 light tank. Years later, in the 1980s, it was still being done at the Warren Tank Plant in Detroit, using M-60 tanks and cars seized by the Feds. Is that a derelict Peerless?
  7. Ah so. Thanks for enlightening me about the service motorcycle. I guess I missed the memo about that. And now, seeing the cycle attached to the car, I see where the idea for the modern biker's "trike" originated.
  8. Bob, the '37 Plymouth photo is interesting. It appears to have a longer rear section when compared with the attached photo of a '37 Plymouth coupe. The longer rear section probably provides room for the rumble seat. On the car in your old photo there appears to be a step plate on the rear fender to facilitate climbing access to the rumble seat. On the top of the trunk lid there appears to be a handle for the rumble seat door, said door opening to the rear. The rumble seat in various car makes continued into the mid- and later-1930s, although their popularity waned. Hudson and Hupmobile w
  9. Great photo of the car. But what is with that service motorcycle? There are two rubber tires mounted on steel rims, fixed to the rear end of the motorcycle. Those two wheels can not be used on the car nor the motorcycle, hence what are they for?
  10. Early collision safety test. Vehicle type unidentified. Surely are a lot of engineers observing this test.
  11. This photo of a Willys-Overland was posted earlier. It appears to be a taxi model, suggested by the equipment on the roof. The object at center-front on the roof appears to be what a TAXI sign should look like.
  12. What make and year is this automobile? The windshield has supporting rods, but the folding top has no stabilizing fasteners at the front. The top appears to be one large air scoop. The usual top bows can not be detected while there is a Rube Goldberg of supporting irons on the sides. Is this an after market top on the car?
  13. The Russian language caption attached with this photo says this (the house/property) is the Tsar's residence in Minsk, Belarus, 1914-1917. Belarus, also known as "White Russia", is an independent country today, but formerly was part of the Soviet Union after the fall of the Tsar Nicholas 2nd's Imperial government in 1917. The Soviet Union disbanded in December, 1991, and Belarus became an independent country. As did Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and other former republics.
  14. No idea where there photo is from, but the the iden says it is a 1924 Renault. It does look like a brute. Proportionally the hood looks like it houses a straight 16 cylinder engine.
