Carspotter's Challenge #165: Xtreme Motorsports, 1924

A curious find from my wife's ancestral photo albums.

Polo ponies? The license plates all read "Ohio 1924," so we can date the photo to the warm weather months of that particular year, but we have no idea who took the picture, exactly where in Ohio it was taken, or what the connection is to my wife's family (if there even is one). One of the sailors in the middle car is holding a polo mallet, which gives us some idea of what the game was.

If you can identify the gasoline-burning "polo ponies," or any of the other cars in the picture, or have any better idea of what was going on, leave a comment.

The Polo-ponies: Model T's?
It'd make perfect sense that they would be Model T's, given that they were EVERYWHERE back then, and they were still in production by that year!
If that would be the case, then they would be pre-1917, due to the square grilles.
