About Quiz # 325: 1927 Yruam


1927-yruam-325-1We knew this was going to be a tough quiz and quite rightly so as we only received four correct answers. The car was a 1927 Yruam built in Buenos Aires, Argentina by French aeronautical engineer Emmanuel J. Maury. Maury emigrated from France to Argentina in 1910. He opened a workshop for the maintenance of airplane and car engines and became an agent for Rolland Pillain. In 1925 he designed this two-seater, two-door coupe which he named Yruam and finished the prototype in 1927. In 1966 Maury donated the car to the Automóvil Club Argentino where it is on permanent display at the club's headquarters in Buenos Aires. The four answers we received came from two jury members: Robbi Marenzi and Fried Stol and two others: Garcia Yannick from France and Hannu Aalto from Finland. Hannu had the make right but unfortunately not the year. Garcia told us all we wanted to know including why the prototype was called Yruam... it's Maury in reverse! Congratulations Garcia, the T-shirt will be on its way!

More pictures of the Yruam can be found here and here (both in Spanish)
