What is this car?I have been trying to identify the make of this car my father owned in about 1950 but without success. From the registration format I believe it to be pre-war. (OV 7554 registered in Birmingham) Can anyone identify it?

Can anyone identify this car? We think it is an Alvis Eagle.

The photo was taken in The Netherlands during an event of the PAC in 1981.

Mystery Bleriot HeadlampMy friend Mohamed Rasheed, happens to own an interesting (20's? 30s?) Bleriot headlamp. Photos are attached.

Is it possible to identify from which vehicle this headlamp came off. We reckon a French made vehicle between 1920 & 1930.

Many thanks for your never ending support.

A Theodore Lafitte cyclecar made in Paris

A Theodore Lafitte cyclecar made in ParisI have not been able to prove the year of manufacture, believed to be 1926, so the DVLA have not agreed to register the car for use in the UK.  My next chance is to prove that it was manufactured 'Not later than 19xx'  Can anybody help me with evidence of when chassis 1053 was made, or when Lafitte stopped making cars.  We believe they stopped in 1928 but now we have to prove that.
