italian lady with unknown edwardian car

A friend sent me this picture asking me to identify make and model of the car. The location in Italy is unknown, but possibly in the Naples area. I suggested an italian make, but must admit my knowledge on cars does not reach back to the edwardian ones. Should not be very difficult , I guess. Paolo Bordini

Marta automobile in Austro Hungarian EmpireDear PWC community,

I try to find out what is the make of the car in the picture, and the location  where photo have been shot. 
It may be a Marta, but have no other photos to compare.
Marta ( Magyar Automobil Részvény Társaság Arad) automobiles were build in 1909 under Westinghouse license in Arad. The city is now located in Romania. 
The nice details in the picture, the flag, the flowers, the costumes, etc. sugest that the day was very special.
There is also a "... Janos" shop in the background.
Can anyone help and identify the car, the statue in the background or the building ?

Thank you,
George Nica

This is not a Lancia Lambda! (update: Tatra 17/31 )

This is not a Lancia Lambda!
While browsing automobilia at Epoq'Auto Lyon in 2014 I found this nice photo, labelled Lancia Lambda.
However while it looks similar to early Lambdas with Balloon closed body, it cannot be one: it is much too big, proportions are wrong, and it has dumb-irons, thus a rigid front axle.
What is it? A big limousine, of italian origin. I believe it to be a late Lancia Trikappa, 1921 or 1922, with front wheel brakes. Mayble one of your readers can be more positive, and identify the coachbuilder.

Fuel "Essence" tank identity

Fuel "Essence" tank identity

I've found two of these tanks in an old barn granary, they are both slightly different in the pressure gauge mounting. They both have J E Malivert gauges and Austin clearly printed on the gauge. They have both been painted originally bottle green and are 10 3/4 " x 7" x 6".
Wishing for them to go to the right home I wonder if anyone could help with any identification?

1916 Vicchi or Victrix? (update : De Vecchi)

1916 Vicchi or Victrix?

I recently bought this photo, a car registered in Spain in 1916.

According to some records the car is registered as a Vicchi. I didn't find this make in Georgano's encyclopedia.

Could it be a Victrix?

Regards,

Antonio Palacín  ( autodromo.es)
