Baltic rallying for Rollses only?

vihula car_rally_2012-470
Is this Holland? A dutch registered Rolls and a windmill. Well to be honest this guess brings you a mere 1200 miles off course. This is Estonia at the Baltic sea. A dreamlike country of fairy tales, with the promising town of Tallinn, a quiet and most pleasant backdrop for relaxed vintage touring.

The abundancy of Rollses depicted here has nothing to do with local taxes or similar legislation, but with the mere fact that the first Baltic Vintage and Classic Rally was tried and tested by the 20 Ghost club, the oldest Rolls Royce Club in the world. So you will not be the first to experience the hospitality of historic Vihula Manor. And don't feel shy if you do not own the Best Car in the World but more 'humble material' like Hispano, Delage, Packard, Bentley or Mercedes. Just keep the last week of June open and Go East young man! Enjoy the Baltic Vintage and Classic Rally.

What happened to Zelia? (update: or is it Lelia?)

morris oxford_light_car_3_470

David Smallacombe (Australia) is working on a most interesting project:

"I am an owner of a 1914 Morris Oxford and I am just starting to restore it. Looking on the internet and trolling through books and magazines I found these photos taken on the sands in Porthcawl  South Wales. The car 'Zelia' is a single seater Morris Oxford fitted with a cowl over the radiator and has a long pointy tail. The car is also fitted with disc wheels which were fitted to the single seater roadster listed in the 1914 Morris catalogue. Do any of you knowledgable folks in the UK know anything about 'Zelia' and if any of the single seaters survived?"

A Micro Roadster Mystery (UPDATE: no Aero)

Small car - unidentified

Mikolay Racki found this car in the barn of a polish car collector who recently died.

"It measures about 1.5 meter long. Check details like rear axle, frame constructions, springs, steering, four drum brakes etc. Check details like rear axle, frame constructions, springs, steering, four drum brakes etc. Can you tell me what it was, who made it, what years, where can I find some info about it ? Like which engine was used?"

Lots of questions and little to go on with this micro car. Probably the radiator (aircooled car?), the pressed steel wheels and suspension are giving the best clues.
