CarsArt.com and will be presented to the winner. Now don't think you will only have a chance when you advertise a V 12 Packard, T 35 Bugatti, or Mercedes-Benz 540 K. No matter if you see a 1000 Euro or a Million dollar car, when judging the photos we will only look for the artistic possibilities. So to make a chance the only thing you have to do is: put up your private prewar car of motorbike For Sale through these pages. Take for instance this living room project: the BSA offered by Carl Hinchclife from the UK. A full history on the GBP 2500 project when you go to 'Read More'. Early in May we will report which advertised car has won the painting and show it as soon it is ready.
Update: Mark Dawber (NZ) on early OHC cars: "I recall reading a long time ago that the Welch car in the US was an early user of ohc. I see by the Statdard Catalog that they claimed in late 1905 to be the first US manufacturer to have this feature. The Pungs-Finch of 1906 was similarly equipped. In England, the Maudsley car featured an overhead camshaft that could be swung out of the way to allow access to the valves. It was designed by Alex Craig who did design work for some other makers. The Maudsley also had full pressure lubrication but it didn't extend to the ohc - that required oiling with an oil can (according to the article in On Four Wheels). I am not sure when this model was introduced but it could have been as early as 1904."
Congratulations / Félicitations Roselyne !!!

It is a brand New Year! And we want to express our wish that 2005 will bring everything you hope for. For instance a brilliant barnfind like this one which landed in the editorial mailbox only very recent. The car emerged after a barnsleep of no less than 50 years. Now for connoisseurs of the French car this will seem not very complicated. This make by the way was the first -long before Henry Ford- to introduce series production. We think this was even before 1900. Anyway. hope you're still on board, we want you to name the Make(1), the Year(2) and the Type(3). Now everybody can see this is not a standard model, so that is where this quiz is getting ugly... Question 4 : who is the coachbuilder? By the way this southern France company is still alive & kicking and even do have a website...! (photo source to be revealed next week)
The flagstandards show possibly the Fin flag (or is it the flag of England; red cross over white field?). One competitor gambled for Switzerland. One for Norway. That last competitor admitted there are no 'Made in Finland' cars known from the twenties (or..?) to us. All in all no winners this time, which gave us a little spare time to do X-mas preparations. Only jurymember Lars-Göran Lindgren had it all right, it was a walkover for the Swedish brass expert (click) He came up with SAF: the Sveriges Automobil Fabrik (or is it Svenska Automobil Fabrik ?). One of those typical oddballs that was produced only very short and in very limited numbers. Even the US made engine made by Golden Bellknapp & Swartz is not the most wellknown around to put it mildly. Read more about this Swedish make at Granfoss.net. Next time better for all of you (click photo for SAF photo)
Additionally Lars-Göran found in the Swedish car encyclopedia ("Svenska Bilar - 151 olika märken") 33 pre 1945 established Swedish makes, beginning with Vabis in 1897 and ending in 1943 with Husqvarna. (photo collection Leif Ortegren (US); click for more detail)
