Prest-O-Lite Tank cast brackets

Does anyone know when the cast brackets were first used - were they used prior to 1910? Most period ads don't show the brackets at all. I haven't found the cast brackets in pictures before 1912-1913 but would like to find something before 1910 if possible. Any help would be appreciated - thanks in a...

Re: Straight sided tires

Straight-sided tires were marketed pretty early in the US. They were standard equipment on many brands in the pre-1910 period. Here is a Goodyear ad from 1905:

Re: coil point arc

Re: Old photos - stripping a wrecked 1914 T

I wanted to see if I could find the serial number for the car from data collected for another project. It looks like it is 193353 which puts it into the January 1913 production.

Re: I need help identifying detachable and split rims and wheels.

Re: Top Boot

I'd like to see more pictures of the '13 top boot to use for our '13 T. I agree with - why make it incorrectly when it can be made as it was originally?

Re: HCCT questions - every other spark stronger

Could you try to post a picture of the spark pattern? If the room is dark, the sparks will show up in a picture pretty well.
