I think I have taken my share of space on the forum with stories of these already. The not-Ford cars are wonderful and only increase my pleasure of having Model T's. A little contrast is good.

I have found more interest in these on this forum than most other forums. The interest and expertise of forum members here is extraordinary.
I will looks forward to others cars.

1936 Austin 10 Sherborne, bought in the Netherlands in 1974. Between 1974 and 1977, drove in five European countries (usually tent camping). In 1977 brought it with us to the US. My wife and I, plus a 17-month-old daughter (visible here in the back seat), drove it 6,500 miles through 15 states and four Canadian provinces, starting in New York and ending in St. Louis. Again, mostly tent camping or staying with friends. This picture was taken in Canada, I think in Nova Scotia somewhere.

Rich, I love that 2 cylinder Buick. 1906, 1907, and 1908 are my top favorite years for American designed automobiles. I have the remains of a 1908 Stanley 10 h.p. model EX that I'd like see on the road someday. That's the only non Ford antique that I currently own. Calling it a car at this point is wishful thinking but maybe some day.

1920 Dodge that had been cutdown to make pickup. The back part of the touring body has been replaced, but it is the wrong year and things don't line up. I have a set of hasslers for the front if I ever decide to rebuild and put on. Missing the springs for them but they are the same as T. Looks like I should get some photos of it here at home, the ones I have now (besides some parts shots) are all where it was stored.
