About Quiz # 319: 1926 Marino


1926-marino-319-1Jurymember Fried Stol wrote: "By the look of things the manufacturer has something to do with the navy/marine, the use of those air tubes/vents on the hood of this car make that obvious. You see them also on deck on big ocean-liners. In this case it's his name." And so it is. Our quiz car is a 1926 Marino that's on display in the Museo Boninfante, in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. We received correct answers from Kaspars Dortāns, Fred de Mol, Fёdor, Fritz Hegemann, Luigi Massimo Degli Eredi and jurymembers James Helms, Fried Stol and Frans Vrijaldenhoven. From these the answer of Fritz Hegemann stood out as he told us all we wanted to know, even the results from the races in which the Marino was entered. Well done Fritz! Your T-shirt will be on the way. (See Read More for his answer).
