Can someone please let me know what the car in this photo is. (Make and model.) The man in the pic is my great great grandfather Willliam H. Bates a rancher in Colorado. He died in 1911 and my grandmother always said that he had owned the first car in Colorado. I have been trying to do a little family research and just thought it would be interesting to know more about the car too.

Thanks for your help.attachment.php?attachmentid=72115&stc=1&d=1292171315

Hmm, fascinating concept about picture distortion! The artistic curves of this newer picture might lend credence to the thought that the designer had a knack for engineering-in curvatures tending towards optical illusion! Anybody? True, that this newer picture does not cry out for 4 wheel steering, but it somehow appears the folks in the front seat are proceeding in a different direction than the rear seat passengers (would be).

Sorry,.....one more thing I need to ask. What is the little white clover? roadster behind the autocar? I think and hope I am not hijacking the threaD, just hitching a ride on it, since the original thread has been satisfied! Will post also to a new thread department. Thanks...Perry in Idaho, ho , ho.
