Peter Skofic writes: "The photo shows the rally of the members of the Automobil Club of the Kingdom of the SHS, section Maribor, which took place in Logarska valley (Slovenia). I can recognize the two cars in the front of the row - these are two Austro Daimlers 15/35. The first one could be part of the today`s collection of the Technical Museum of Slovenia and the second one could be today in the possession of one of the members of the Austro Daimler Club in Wiener Neustadt (Austria). But I cannot recognize the rest of the cars in the row. Can anybody of your readers help me with solving this challenge?"

Many thanks for all your well wishes and nice comments. We were pleased to know that you have enjoyed the quiz. It wasn't really too difficult this time and almost all of the competitors had all answers correct. We even received complaints that it was too easy :-) Rest assured, the bi-weekly quiz will be much harder to solve. But back to this quiz. Not so easy was day 1. It was not a Jaguar as mentioned by several, as that name as a marque wasn't introduced until after WW II. Until then it was a model name of the S.S. made by SS Cars Ltd (formerly the Swallow Coachbuilding Company). What we showed was the 1935 S.S. Saloon. Nobody guessed wrong on day 2. It was the 1938 BMW 327/328. Day 3 was a bit more difficult, but most had this one correct, a 1933 Delage D8 S cabriolet Pourtout. The same goes for day 4, a 1937 Packard Twelve Convertible Sedan; day 5 was a 1930 Maserati Tipo 26 M Sport (although sometimes mistaken for an Alfa Romeo) and day 6 showed a 1935 Renault Celtaquatre ZR2.
Many of you gave us also the complete makes and models, but just the make was enough. Just like previous years we have put all answers in the proverbial hat and picked six correct answers. They are from: Ian Sly, Karin Jacob, Robert Giddy, Hendrik Stockman, Mireille Devriendt and Wander van Eck. Well done, you all!

The first weekend of January will be a long one. Shows in Birmingham, London and Maastricht to mention a few who like to kick off the new season. Auctions in two places. See for Coys' NECC Birmingham sale our post-war review. Tough choices for Gentlemen. At the same time Coys is doing a one owner collection sale during Maastricht's Interclassics Topmobiel. The Brundza collection is a primarily US car collection from Eastern Europe. There's a wide choice of Caddys. Our personal choice would be the lovely untouched 1922 Type 61 Suburban. Yet you may be one of the veteran Caddy adorers who prefers the one cylinder Cars. The 1904 type B 4S Runabout or a 1905 Model C Touring. Slightly more modern is the 1912 Cadillac Torpedo, a pretty straightforward 1929 type 341-A Fleetwood, ...or if you like your saloon somewhat more extravagant, how about the 1934 V12 Fleetwood Imperial Sedan. Afraid a V12 will not do? In that case one can contemplate the V16 Fleetwood formal Sedan or an only seconds before WWII produced 1942 (!) Series 75 Fleetwood. It's really worthwhile to nose around in the catalogue. And not only for the post-war fintailed Caddys.
Still not exhausted and fully satisfied after this, then catch a plane on Sunday or Monday to arrive timely in Scottsdale, Arizona for the auction circus exploding next week when Barrett Jackson, Bonhams, Gooding, RM, Russo & Steele and Silver Auctions will fight to get the bidders in.
