Mystery old sprint car

Hello

I have an old sprint car that I can't figure the year or make, I'm assuming 20s based off radiator overall build and the Polly Gas sticker at the cowl. It has a rambler 6 powering it, thank you in advance for your assistance. 

 

Best regards 

Kevin

1923 Rover 8 Coupe
After reading your article about the Rover twin-air Special (16 March 2016) and finding out that it was based on a 1919 - 1925 Rover 8hp, I posted the picture (below) of a 1923 Rover 8hp Coupe (source: Wikipedia) on our (closed) Facebook Group: Rhodesians and their cars of yesteryear. This elicited a response from a Mr. Dirk Burrowes of Fitchburg, MA , who is  a collector of brass and vinatge Rovers in the States and had been send the picture by one of our group members. He was wondering if anyone could share more information about where and when the picture was taken and who might be the current caretaker of the car? Can anyone of your readers help?
thnx Andre
