What is it? PreWar Christmas Quiz day 5

prewar-xmas-quiz-2014-5a
Part five of our six day quiz shows a side lamp mounted on what looks like a racing car. Side lamps on a racing car? Well why not, it's road equipped, so side lamps are a necessity. This model was developed by a predecessor that went bankrupt. The design was sold to a company that recently celebrated its 100th birthday. This was to become their first racing car, which dominated the 1930s racing season. The one shown here was meant for long-distance races like the Mille Miglia and the Targa Florio. Hence the lamps.

What is it? PreWar Christmas Quiz day 4

The automobile featured in part four of our six day quiz has a most unusual color, but in our opinion quite acceptable on a luxurious twelve-cylinder convertible sedan. Not a clue what it is? Then ask the man who owns one!

What is it? PreWar Christmas Quiz day 3

prewar-xmas-quiz-2014-3a
The past two quiz cars may have been easy, but for part three of our six day quiz we are going to make it a bit more difficult. This side lamp is mounted on a French supercar from the 1930s with a body by Pourtout. But we have seen more examples of this marque with the same side lamps, so we presume they were fitted originally. The make started in 1905, but went into receivership in 1935. From then on the maker of another French supercar assembled them from their own components, but still badged them with the original name. During the 1930s (and postwar) they could be seen at many Concours d'Elegance.

What is it? PreWar Christmas Quiz day 2

prewar-xmas-quiz-2014-2a

For part two of our six day quiz we found a quite handsome side lamp, but as we said yesterday we haven't got a clue if this was fitted originally. This side lamp was mounted on the fender of a very potent and today very much sought after sports car. It was made by a company that started manufacturing aero plane engines and motor cycles. The company is still in business and its heritage can still be found in their logo.
