    Yes, 1904 L (rear entrance tonneau). Behind the Selden is another Packard, probably a 1905 model N. Great stuff - a Vanderbilt cup race would have been awesome to behold, but I am stuck in the parking lot, covered with drool.

    Photo posted by GranPa, AACA member, over on the
    AACA forums in June '09, and I THANK both him and
    AACA for this wonderful look at a SoCal scene from
    long ago! Obviously, the Locomobile is the sturdier
    vehicle, as the truck got the worst of it. Judging by
    the open truck, the driver had to have been thrown
    out! AACA members judged the Locomobile to be
    from 1915 to 1925 -- a pretty big spread! But one
    knowledgeable fella leaned closer to early mid-'20s.

    Neat photo. I'm guessing it's a 1937 Beverly or Custom Beverly with the Bubble Trunk with that tent like thing. Seems like they would of needed the Bubble Trunk to hold that.

    I have pics of a 1898 Fredonia,but not pre WWII. Also a 1905 Mahoning
    that came after the Fredonia but I think it only lasted a year...

    The first two photos are Type I Loco engines as in the cars we looked at earlier in post #2141. The Type I engines have make and break ignition.

    The third photo is a 1913 or earlier Model 48 Locomobile. Both engines have crankcases cast of manganese bronze which is incredibly strong.

    This is a 1908 Loco Type I racing car with Florida behind the wheel. An identical car won the Fairmont park races in Philly in 1908 driven by George Robinson.

    Not too sure about that. Here's a pic of a 1921 Stephens Salient Six with a very different front fender design. The Stephens did have OHV and bragged about running 600 miles on 20 gallons of Gas.

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

    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!

    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!
