Whatisit? PreWar Christmas Quiz day 6

prewar-xmas-quiz-2016-6a
Seen here is a patriot from the American Revolution. Born in 1734, he became a silversmith, but in 1765 he became a member of a group of militants trying to protect the right of the colonists and to fight taxation by the British Government. Ten years later he became famous for his legendary ride to warn the citizens of the advancing British troops. In 1918 an high-powered, high-performance American automobile was named after him, although for some obscure reason they spelled it a little bit different. Due to financial trouble the make didn’t last until 1926. Please tell us the name of this automobile.

The man behind the wheel of this magnificent Benz (click main picture) was a French engineer. Born in 1879, he moved to Saint-Petersburg in 1905 and became a personal driver to Tsar Nicolas II. Trying to improve the cars for the Russian roads, he invented a flexible belt. After the Russian revolution he went back to France and started working for a French automobile manufacturer. His invention was used on several of their models between 1921 and 1937 for off-road and military vehicles. Their crossings are noteworthy.

The mean looking man pictured here was a French explorer and adventurer who travelled to New-France. In 1701 he laid the foundations for a city that was to become a world center for automobile production during the twentieth century. Too bad the city is in a deplorable state these days. In 1902 a car maker named his automobile after him, a marque that still exists today. Tell us the name of this automobile and the full name of the explorer for extra points.
