I will leave the prize money on the table. I scanned that picture from a copy of the original. That is a picture of my grandfather's first automobile. The original picture was taken about 100 years ago. That was a 1912 model T Ford. There were several stories about that car and about it's carbide lights.

My grandfather is the one on the left, my grandmother the one standing on the right.

In case anyone was wondering, my photo of the truck is a 1936 Diamond T Model 80D. My dad bought it in about 1957 and we hauled wheat with it for many years. As a kid, after we quit using it, I would get it running each summer and drive it around the ranch. I actually have a photo of this truck when new, part of a freight company fleet.
