Fuel stop in DC, 1920. Notice the sign at left (no chance at all?). What state is the second plate from?

Yo, RatFink! Please, let's give Jimmy some soup anywho,
'cause I wanna know what the car on the extreme LEFT is,
bro. For some reason, I said Hupp right off. Am I right --
or just OFF as usual??? LOL



(Besides, can't we grandfather in B&W pix from WWII itself? I guess
I have to plead that case to T-6. Oh, shit, I'm in trouble!)

Thanks, T-Head. That SoB just looked too advanced to me to be anywhere near WWI-era. It's FUN sortin' these things, isn't it?

T-Head, whadya MEAN "back then"??? In 1958, I'd
have given my eye teeth for my own little "car"!!! I
had, maybe, one dollar in my piggy bank, in Merc dimes,
buffalo nickels and wheat pennies. I'd have given it ALL
just to drive one of those new-fangled "GO-Carts" around
a track once. That's when I got the car bug!

Shorpy says its a Stephens.





The cutline for the Shorpy photo:

February 9, 1927. Central High School, Washington, D.C. "High
school girls learn the art of automobile mechanics. Grace Hurd,
Evelyn Harrison and Corinna DiJiulian, with Grace Wagner under
the car."

The pic was taken by National, a news-photo service back then.
Credit goes to Shorpy: THANKS, Shorpy!

Looking at the thumbnail I thought 'no that's a Plymouth' but it turns out to be a badge engineered export Dodge D12



The Canada Cycle Trading co handled the badge engineered Dodges in oz and took about 6 months to hit the market after the Plymouths in 39.
This is what the oz TJ Richards coupe looks like, same one year only turret as my Plymouth ute...

Jimi that reminds me of a short steep hill in Sydney and a guy describing the chaos it used to cause to me as we were driving up it. It was possible to charge this one forwards but of course not everyone made it, add to that those reversing up and doing multipoint turns and you get the picture. This guy had worked at the government motor garage near the foot of the hill and said it always made great lunchtime entertainment
