Pope-Toledo Speedcar

A pair of young gentleman out in the fall, in what appears to be a circa 1906  stripped down Pope-Toledo. This may have been the big Type XII, which was listed as a 35-40 h.p. car. These gents, like many others, copied what racing car drivers did when they built a racing car. By taking off the rear section of the body, if it was a touring and anything else not essential, a bit more speed could be coaxed out of a car because of the reduced weight and wind resistance.
