Two cars with men gathered around at the Auto Show of 1916 in Rochester NY. The name F.W. Williams Son" appears across the side of one car both of which are Model T. Fords. Being in the sheet metal business they could have built these bodies?? RMSC Photo

A race thay must have been in the Rochester NY area. I can identify the car on the inside rail as a 19111 -14 Mercer Raceabout. Can anyone give us more details on this race? RMSC Photo.

Yellerspirit - thanks for sharing your great photos. I've enjoyed ones you have posted elsewhere on the HAMB, and it's great to have you join in on this thread.

And now for something completely different. Horsch's lined up as you'd expect in Germany at the '36 Olympics. The cars are timeless classics, but those mustaches are no longer in fashion.

Thanks for this rare pic, Twin6. Most folks would have discounted it. My first impression is that this may well have been the leavings from a bon fire. For reasons not clear to me in 2010, metals guys often LIKED to let steel lie for a few years before putting it into the ladle for re-smelting. Obviously, it's just a WAG on my part. Thanks again!

I don't think an engineer was involved in construction!
Shit, I'd hate to be the guy assigned to change a flat

T-Head, this is significant, BUT I don't wanna waste a whole lot of thread time on it, since it probably bores people. I just feel kinda sorry for cars that started off as well-enameled creations, some selling originally for the price of a nice house! Rodders today would KILL to go get those cowlings and other bodywork! THANKS, buddy!
