    ??? maybe a 1913 Model T Roadster...there's a few pics of them on Flickr if you look around...my bet is that's Mrs Kerr (mother of Beatrice, etc) at the wheel. Ford expert still required...

    I think we are looking at a 1920 Ford Model T, give or take a year or so. The smooth transition between hood and cowl makes it a younger car than a 1913 model.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/mazdamiata] Good to have some input from someone who has some expertise in the field! I must confess I know precious little about vintage cars (and motorcycles). I've essentially been guessing.
