Hi, my house was built on a site that used to be a garage. In the 'garden' as well as 3 car roofs which apparently were cut off under German orders, I have found about 10 windows similar tothis photo. they are about 7mm thick.
would it be possible to identify the type of car they come from, and would they be on any use to anyone?
editor: 7 mm seems quite thick ; as if from armoured cars..?

I need to identify a car that was recently purchased by a friend of mine but I do not have much information about it.
I´ll appreciate if you could give a hand identifying this vehicle.
editor: Looks like Austin logo, however the radiator
shape is not what we know.

Harry Pyle: "What is it? I know what it is. It is an empty/hollow bronze crankcase off a 3 wheel cycle car circa 1905-10. Please give me some more details."

Another mysterie from the 1934 Alpine Trial. A gentleman by the name of R.L. Richardson from the U.K. drove a Railton Terraplane by Berkeley (like the one shown here) and finished to win a Glacier Cup with no penalties. Nothing is known about him. His navigator was a certain Mr. Ranger, initials unknown. I have found a R.L. Richardson who partcipated in the 1927 MCC London to Edinburgh and London to Exeter trials in a Rover 9, but have no idea whether this is the same person. Supposedly he lived in a house named Beggar's Roost, but this is not confirmed. Any information on Mr. Richardson will be greatly appreciated. ( 5000 comp )

Phil Macwhirter from Melbourne, Australia writes: "I recently came across this photo on the web whilst researching Calcutta where I have distant family connection. I am not sure what type of car this is. Do you know? It does resemble a Railton which I happen to be restoring, but... over to the experts."
