Mystery Aero ScreenDoes anyone know the manufacturer and date of this aero screen please? It is from a pre war car but may have been fitted post war.

At first I thought it was a home made screen using flexible plastic. But then I saw the plastic had the word "Brooklands" and a logo formed in it!

Hi
This is some info for your British readers if you watch Talking Pictures  Channels Freeview 81 Freesat 306 Sky 343 Virgin 445 Thursday 6th July 5.10AM. They are showing a film called Calling all Cars .
The car in question is a Jaguar 120 reg MDU 524 Which according to google is the car Norman Dewis used to drive as a record attempt in Belgium .
The car in the film looks a bit different the thing that drew me to look at the car more closely is the filler cap arrangement
Regards and thanks

Oily rag Delahaye
Hi
I was recently out working in one of our Citroën Traction Avants, and saw this beauty parked in a public car park. I have never seen an oily rag Delahaye before, but after seeing this car in all its honesty I think it's a huge pity there arent more of them.

Two fun period Hawaiian Pictures

Two fun period Hawaiian PicturesI spotted thes two pictures from the early days on a Hawaiian Historical Society photo series. I asked a friend who is a resident and native Hawaiian for her take on these photos.....here is what she had to say:
 What cool photos!  Love's Bakery is still in existence.  It's based in Honolulu (island of Oahu), but distributes products throughout all the islands.
The 2nd photo indicates "Lihue Store" on the car.  Lihue is on the island of Kauai so I'm not familiar with that store.  However, looking at the store window behind, it shows Schuman Carriage which is an auto dealership on Oahu.
Also, if you enlarge the photo, you'll see a street sign on the upper left side.  It says "Merchant".  There is a Merchant St. in downtown Honolulu, so I'm guessing this photo was also taken in Honolulu.
Love the cars!  :)   Thanks for sharing!
Aloha,
Kathleen

Military Issue ClockDoes anyone know what these were fitted to.?   A/l\D is R.N.A.S. isuue WW1 and Birch&Gydon supplied many items to the Military.
It is in an Aluminium bayonet case for dash mounting and has the Time of trip extra dial.
Would be nice to know for sure what it's original use was....will look good in an early car anyway.
