Raising chickens can be a very rewarding process. Besides providing you with fresh eggs, it can also be a teaching resource for your children and a way for you to become self-sufficient. There are a few mistakes that people, however, make when they first start raising chickens.
I came across a website about raising chickens, when I searched for a clue to give you about the car in the picture of this week's quiz.
What has raising chickens to do with this car, you wonder? Well, the car in the picture was certainly not "the best car in the world", as the keystone shape of the radiator may be suggests. In fact, one of the assembly line workers said that the company engineer "should have raised poultry instead."
Before the First World War the automobiles of this company were well-built, long-lasting and famous because of their slogan, but after the war all was different.
Anyway we want you to tell us about the car shown here. Give us your best shot regarding Make, Year & Type plus any (trivial) information you may have at hand. As you know the details often determine the winner! And as usual, also in 2017, take care not to use more than 100 words, send in your answer before Monday and don't forget to check the rules under 'Read more'.
When we saw this picture we immediately wondered what colour this 1934 Ford would have been painted. Computer experts are writing new software all the time and it is becoming easier to do very clever things with our computers.
That means some people are enjoying 'colourising' old black and white images with very good results.
Little did the smart well-dressed lady realise that someone in the future would be changing the colour of her skirt to suit the changing colour of the car.
Which do you prefer?
Henry Ford is famous for mass production and we can believe he once said ..."Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black."
He was experimenting with the assembly line, at the time, and only fast-drying black paint allowed for "full-speed" assembly.
Whether he said it or not, it's good advertising and although we are unable to give you the name of the elegant lady, we can have a stab at identifying the car and we have come up with 1934 Ford Victoria.
As always, we welcome information you can offer about Ford colour schemes and perhaps the lady's name, and before you ask.... No, we didn't change the car's colour. We are not clever enough. Besides, we are too busy mending/driving our old cars and we hope you are too.
