I've been told that this is the best site in the world for prewar cars.
So.... can anybody help me with more info to this car?

All I know is, the man in the picture is my grandfather, died 1934. The licence number is from 1925, but the car  is older, 1907 or therabouts.

I know he had a bicycle and motorcycle shop, maybe combined with some taxidriving, which was not unusual in those days. But there's no family left to ask ...

Location is in or near The Hague/Netherlands

Another picture from my great grandfathers photo album. Chevrolet?

editor: we think your grandfather is shwoing his fordor Model T . We'll need an expert to say which year it is, but the painted radiator will help. 1925 ?

last mystery car
One last pic from my great grandfathers photo album. Not sure if this is prewar or not but the suicide doors make me think it could be. Sorry the picture quality is poor.

editor: Nice sunny snowy day. For sure pre-war this coupe, yet not too much to go on... the small side windows and sparewheel may proove to be helpful though.
