I thought I would post this because of its uniqueness.

At a car show this evening in North St. Paul, I was taking to the owner of this car.
I’ve seen it several times but never talked to the owner before.

Really nice old guy.

I learned quite a bit from him about pre WWI cars.

I found out there are only two of them known to exist and this is the only one still running.

The body is aluminum and was hand built way back in 1914.

The radiator ornament is a clue.

How about the tan one and the red/white one on the street?

I didn’t realize how many different cars (or parts) were in the pic when I took it.

There's red stepside squarebody in the background too.

I've studied the hood ornament carefully and have deduced
that it's a Fish car.It's unique construction was due to Mr Fish's
previous work in a tuna cannery.It was also available in a
convertible,or 'pull tab' model

Marlin? 69 road runner and 55 Chev on the street.
Good Job!
If you look real close... You can see the Road Runner decal just below the wing window. ;)

The Continental kit on the 55 didn't fool anybody.
The quarter panel shape and trim are a dead giveaway for true car guys.

I don't recall the make/model of the maroon convertible next to the 57 Chevy.
Any guesses there?
