This is a Hershey trophy. One of the few photos we were lucky enough to find there. The seller told us that he still wondered what make of car is showing. We reassured him that the PrewarCar community probably wouldn't have too many issues identifying the car. That was bluff of course as this American made beauty is not the simplest quizcar ever. Better click the above picture to check the enlargement.
This carmaker is not particularly well known for making gasoline cars. It has an elegant coal shuttle nose with the radiator low at the front. With the risk making this an easy quiz we like to mention the make was founded in Ohio. While the make survived only shortly, it would live on in combination with various other names. We are most curious to read your responses. And to be honest, mentioning the name and year is already a challenge. So anybody who can add some good information regarding make and technique of this particular car is a hero and is probably very close to winning the infamous PreWarCar T-shirt.
Yet before posting your comment, be sure to read the Rules under Read More. Have a great weekend. More Hershey memories to be published Wednesday & Thursday.

If a fräulein wanted fresh fingers for the freeway in 1939, she would have found the perfect car at the Berlin Motor Show on the Horch stand.
Our picture shows just such a lady, perhaps parked for a picnic rather than an adventure on the autobahn, but she wanted clean hands and there, tucked inside the wing of her 930S is an aluminium fold-out wash basin.
Fed by 2½ gallons of water, one section of the tank is heated by exhaust gases passing through with a spiral pipe and taps are provided to ensure she enjoys the perfect temperature. The basin empties as it is folded back into the bodywork.
Horch built just three of these luxury limousines based on the 1935 930V before war intervened. The streamlined body was based on the DKW Wanderer which helped this 2300kg car reach 178 kilometres per hour.
But enough of the car - we have looked again into the eyes of our fräulein and our thoughts are on that picnic !
