While going through an old family album I came across these three photo's.
First photo shows the poor guy trying to fix a badly damaged rear wheel as his wife & kids look on.
In the second photo, he seems to have given up & is hoping the wine will fix things.
The man is not in the last photo, maybe he went for help or the women & kids made better subjects to photograph.

    That bloody thing has broken spokes! Ah, a little wire & a bandaid.

    Love the photos !!! I imagine the wife had packed their lunch, and spread out a quilt or blanket to eat on. They could not call for help back then.

    You're right debbie, I don't see a cell! Hope it's not a long walk back. They will remember to take their cell next time I bet! Hope it was a strong wine.

    Manitoba roads will do that to a car today with metal rims, no wonder the spokes broke!
    Maybe he just climbed that telephone pole in the background pulled some wires off & waited for the repair crew to show up.

    If he had switched the front wheel to the back he then could have fastened a fence post to the front wheel & skied home!

    David, I really appreciate you posting the before and after photo's, now I know what to pack along on a road trip, skip the tools and load up the vino
  16. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    Found a third photo.
  17. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    Love it too,
  18. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    Thanks kerry, I have found more images of this car plus an identical one with it.
  19. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    Will be watching for them, love those old rides, something stirs inside when I see them ;-)
  20. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    Kerry do you know what make the car is, I thought chevy, but not sure now?
  21. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    The hood and radiator cover look like a Chevy or possibly one of the Durant line, if I could make out the center of the wheel, it would tell the story. The double ridge fenders makes me lean towards Chevy
  22. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    google 1917 chevy and look at images, I believe it to be one of those.
  23. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    Eye4, sounds like the "Man" needs to take a few days off for starters, then maybe some positive attitude classes. As far as old cars goes, I've always been a Big fan of vintage autos and such, just don't ask me to fiqure out a new one, couldn't tell you the difference between a Toyota or a Dodge ;-0
    I wouldn't let the hissy-fit worry you, enjoy the rest of your weekend and hope Monday has a better outcome for you and your co-workers.
  24. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago
    Kerry I believe it's a 1924 Willys Overland.

    Thanks for the love & the comment Roy.
    If he had switched the front wheel to the back he then could have fastened a fence post to the front wheel & skied home!
    or just break the other 3 and drive it home on the spokes ...lol...still great pics
  26. kerry10456 kerry10456, 2 years ago
    very possible, wouldn't argue that at all
  27. walksoftly walksoftly, 2 years ago

    Wooden wheels and tires that never wore out or went flat. It's a shame tire companies don't make tires that last anymore.
