I think this one may be a bit harder than yesterday’s, though there is one apparently distinctive feature that could help. Interestingly, a car by this manufacturer had a role in a very important film. If somebody comes up with the car, I’ll let you know about the film, unless somebody comes up with all of it.

Update: RamblinRover has been working hard at it, but he hasn’t cracked the case yet. So here’s a hint: Beach Boys.


Note: I have blurred out the manufacturer’s name on the hubcaps. If you want to see the full-size picture, click on the photo to enlarge it, then right-click and open it in a new tab or window.

Winner: I’m not sure if the winner is RamblinRover or fintail, so they get a share of the prize purse.

This is a Haynes “Fourdore” Roadster. Haynes built cars in Kokomo, Indiana from 1905-1924. The marque holds a place in movie history because a 1912 Haynes 50-60 Model Y Touring Car appeared in the 1915 film A Free Ride (also known as A Grass Sandwich), the earliest extant hardcore pornographic movie shot in the US.
