Carspotter's Challenge #165: Xtreme Motorsports, 1924


A curious find from my wife's ancestral photo albums. The license plates all read "Ohio 1924," so we can date the photo to the warm weather months of that particular year, but we have no idea who took the picture, exactly where in Ohio it was taken, or what the connection is to my wife's family (if there even is one).

December 21 Weekly Open Thread: Fakery Edition


I suppose this could also work as a Carspotters' Challenge, but I also thought it would be interesting as an exercise in historical reconstruction.
