    I like the single headlight in the front. It gives it that cyclops look.

    Wow. That is crazy.

    An absolute classic. From the days when you wore leather skull caps and goggles to drive. Now I’m reminded of Dick Van Dyke in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    Great car. Like Milford street said, it devinitely has that cyclops look about it.

      I wonder how the lights were lit though…

        Probably pretty bright. I think ship lights were bright in those days.

        That one big light probably frightened quite a few people and animals.

        Especially deer in that headlight!

        Wonder if cars fared better or worse with deer than current models?

        I would assume cars better, but not necessarily the occupants.

        Ouchies!

    You do like your classics…

    That is a very interesting car. I love the headlight.

    There weren’t that many cars on the road in 1905 and this one surely would have left a lasting impression. Very nice, Teri.
