About Quiz #366 Missing parts on '29 Hudson and '29 Pierce Arrow

Whats Missing?

Senders of the photo are Peter Ransom and Jak Guyomar from Australia, both jurymember. They thought up this killer-quiz. We received many interesting answers about various makes like Stutz,  Lincoln and Pontiac which are not found in the photo. And then lots of parts missing. Missing radiator caps, missing radiator ornaments (only true for the Hudson). Missing screen wipers. Missing  sparewheels. Missing Trunk. Missing leather water bags. And missing drivers... All incorrect. Peter Ransom explains:  "This photo was taken in Brisbane, Australia. The Hudson is a 1929 Model R Landau Sedan with coachwork by Biddle & Smart. The basic missing item is the landau irons. Step plates and trunk were options, not standard. There was no radiator ornament in 1929 and the correct radiator cap is fitted. For absolute nit-pickers, the Hudson is also missing pin striping along the belt line and on the wheels." Jak Guyomar explains about the blue car: "The Pierce Arrow is my 1929 Model 133 (or 125 which is the Pierce-Arrow Engineering Model designation) Club Brougham & the radiator shell is missing. Plus the kneeling Archer Mascot. It does have the smaller Aux lights on the radiator cross bar."

While jurymember Kit Foster was fully correct and even refers to the man turning his back to us being Geoff Clark, world guru of the first-generation Super Six cars, this weeks winner is Daniel Rueben who named both cars correct and pointed the correct missing items. Congratulations Daniel! And if anybody has suggstions for alternative quiz're welcome.
