    I was told this is my grandmother standing next to there 1925 Rickenbacker automobile. With a jewelers loupe the license plate is a 1929 California. On the radiator grill has a logo of a white circle with a top hat inside. Any Rickenbacker collectors out there who tell me more about this model?

      I don't know much at all about these old automobiles...but I found this information on the Internet:

      The emblem for the car was taken from Captain Eddie Rickenbacker's flying squadron insignia the "Hat in the Ring."

      A really cool photograph of the car!
