Re: Wearing straw hats

The website also says that it is the correct color. Is that true? It looks greenish to me. Shouldn't it be blue?

Curious that the description says that the car is a right hand drive from Britain and the photos show a left hand drive car.

I also noticed that the front wheels are not Model T but a little later. Did you see that there are three sets of running board brackets on the frame?
Was the frame lengthened?
