Can anyone tell me the make of this car that belonged to my great uncle?

Yes.  It is a 1914 Oakland Model 43.    I have one.    It is a southern tread.    Perhaps the first wide track Pontiac.

There are, rarely, unidentifiable cars posted here. This one took minutes. Keiser must have been in the kitchen, makin' a  sammich

I think I have only beat you to the chase once or twice.  Of course I think both had just been posted and i was typing as fast as possible knowing you would be chiming in any minute.   It's like a race to dethrone the king.  Rarely happens and for only a few hours.

I just read this post to my wife and she said that I should let the other boys play once in a while.

C'mon Keiser, I know if you walked up the street, you saw something. What was it?

You do.  I'm sure you use the rest room atleast once a day.  That's our chance.  As I said you just have to type really fast.

Did you tell the T-bird driver he shouldn't have those 55 Fairlane headlight bezels?

Nope....he was going too fast. Barely got the shot.

Actually I think I posted first for this one. It was just before 6 am Saturday and I was about to leave for work. Now 8.17 pm Saturday.

Yep. You beat me....by a mile. Actually by about 6,890 miles.

I knew it Keiser!! I knew if you were on the street something neat would go by. You're not faking these pictures are you? ?

Nope....I take my own photos. Sometimes I crop a photo, but I haven't done any photoshop or altering. My wife is amazed by the amount of old cars I see while she and I are driving somewhere. I guess my eyes are trained to look for a non-modern car profile.

Keep up the good work, we enjoy your photos and are jealous of you eagle eye and the speed of your "trigger finger".

I guess I should clarify the above statement about my photos. When I see stuff, they are my own photos. For reference photos, sometimes I have to go to the internet for those.

Boy, I wasn't expecting this much commentary. I realize that most antique cars are not "unidentifiable" to all who responded but to me it was. Thank you everyone!
