A 1915 mystery

Author: Gaute Sunday, 28 August 2016

A little mysteryPhoto from a long gone hot summer of 1915... Norway. Picture of my great, great aunt and her unknown friend. The plate shows the number A563 (Oslo), but I can't find any info before 1922 - and then this number are clearly placed at another car. So, have anybody a clue what car we see here?

Sthenos carburettaI hope you don't mind me contacting you but my father has the above engine part and wondered whether you could shed some light on get on it in terms of age, type of vehicle it may have come from and possible value, with a view to selling. Dad has had this for many years but I am helping him to clear out his house a little and to sell some bits and bobs that he doesn't use.

Arab Cars

Arab CarsHaving been the owner of the Arab registered UW 2 I am now trying to trace the history of all the Arab cars made. The picture attached is of UW 2 which is now owned in Austria, but the details attached show what I know of all the cars. If anyone could fill in any of the missing details I would be very grateful.
Kind regards,

RedeX Oil Additive.(Wayne V Myers Co. Ltd.)

Author: Roger R Brown Wednesday, 24 August 2016

I am researching the back ground to the RedeX product prior to 1940. Ideally I would like to know who made the RedeX instrument which were on sale in the late 30's; was RedeX made on the premises of Wayne V Myers in London SE1 and finally, how did the Wayne V Myers distribute RedeX thro'out the UK because, according to an ad. published 'Practical Motorist' in July 1939 RedeX had 12000 outlets?

Thank you, Roger Brown
