number plate

We have just moved from Britain to France and we are living in the mayenne while converting a barn into a garage for my 2 MG VAs 1 of which is 0251 the protype VA which i brought from my good friend bas de voot. The plate was uncovered by the digger while preparing the ground for concrete. Can any body tell me is it for a car /tractor? Possibly how old the vehicle might have been?

pre 1910  ohv jap engine?

hi! this motor turned up at hershey, pa swap meet! trying to date it! the cam cover is from a later motor, modified to fit this motor! pinion shaft is extra long and would stick out through the cam cover, so this motor was never a motorcycle engine! maybe cycle car, aero? bore and stroke 85.5mmx95mm, rocker arms are numbered  13,14,15,16,, i am thinking this motor is a 1906, as the motor # is 6101, case # 1, some of the internal parts -rods, cam followers are stamped #1, any ideas on the year and applaication for this engine will be appreciated! thank you for your time!

Rear passenger windscreen ? Le Telescope Eyquem - Paris

Rear passenger windscreen ?  Le Telescope Eyquem - Paris  I purchased this item many years ago thinking it would fit my vintage Standard SLO4 Stratford Tourer - unfortunately it didn't.  Can you with your knowledge please let me know exactly what this is.  It is obviously French from the markings, it' s made of brass/copper and steel and is very heavy. The size is 120cms wide x 40cms high.  If you know anything about it perhaps you also know which car it would fit.  Always enjoy your email magazine, find it most interesting.  Keep up the good work.  Hope to hear from you soon.  

regards Stan Gilford, Chester, England.
