(#23) What is it? Identify that car!

We recently received a massive collection of prewar car photographs. We are equipped to identify cars in photographs. Due to the volume of unidentified images, we decided to try something new….and something that is hopefully fun for you!

Do you think you have what it takes to ID the vehicle(s) in the image? If so, please give us the make and model year and, whenever possible, the reasons why you believe your identification is correct. Some vehicles will be easier to identify than others, but we will share them all with you regardless. After we receive some guesses, we will check our available resources to see how you did. Good luck!

This one is a double feature – Can you identify both? Also note the running board riders!

You can catch a glimpse of an American flag hanging off the back of the vehicle. Can you figure this one out?

Traveling through Yosemite’s Wawona Tunnel Tree:

These five photographs were taken at different times in the same location. The Wawona Tunnel Tree was a popular tourist attraction at Yosemite National Park. The entrance was carved out of a giant Sequoia in 1881. The tree lived to be over 2,000 years old but ultimately fell to the ground in 1969. 

The cars in these photographs currently remain unidentified. Feel free to send us your guesses. We will check your work and let you know if you are correct!

There are four “vehicles” here, and we would like to identify two of them. Bonus points if you can nail both of them!
