#408 of 461 What car & year?
Jul 11, 2013 (12:13 pm)
I'm trying to identify the make/model & year of this car to date it and try to identify the people. The Year of the car will help me rule In/Out certain people. The rounded front hood is unusual."
Thanks for any help you can provide.

Almost certainly a Franklin, late teens by the looks of it.
Here is a 1918 model

I'd agree with that---definitely a Franklin and probably spanning the years of WW I, given the fashions depicted.
#411 of 461 Can you guys identify this car?

I came across an old photo of my Grandfather, and he was obviously very proud of his car, and his work...as he used it to sell bread in Iowa. Unfortunately I don't know how to upload the pic on the forum. ">Can anyone help me identify his car? Sure wish I had a chance to talk to him about it.

So you have a digital copy of the pic on your computer, right? Create an account at photobucket or another photo hosting site, upload it there, and post the URL here. Before posting it, click the "IMG" button below this message box, paste the image URL, then click the "IMG" button again - it should all work then.

That's a real tough one, lots of cars built between about 1910 and 1914 or so looked like that, there's nothing much distinctive on it. It looks like it has kerosene lanterns next to the windshield, so it has to be about that old, maybe a year or two older.

Like texases says, early teens vintage. Appears to have gas cowl lights, but electric headlights, so it would be no older than 1912. It looks like a big solid middle/upper middle class car, not a Model T or a cyclecar etc. The fenders and cowl seem familiar somehow, maybe something like a ~1914 Buick.

Also, if you post it
Someone will know the year, make, and model - some real experts are there, with knowledge far more than my own.
