Taxi !

Taxi !
I saw this poor Austin at the Uluru (Ayres Rock) resort in Australia last month when I was there on holiday. It's advertising the Uluru Tours. But would you prefer this form of transport or the 'alternative form' that is available for what I suspect is a more reliable form of transport ! (see photo 3)

What Car was this Tail Light unit made for?

What Car was this Tail Light unit made for?
The Lucas 469 tail number plate and reversing light (fitted to many cars such as the Jaguar XK150) is mounted in an unusual boot handle. The handle has amanufacturers logo that looks like AJW B'ham. I assume that this is likely to be Birmingham U.K. Rather than USA so I suspect it was fitted to a British car.

Can anyone identify it as I want it to find a good home.

Renault 7TL
Spotted this Renault 7TL at the Michelin tyre factory at Valladolid, Spain.
in excellent condition with Michelin tyres. Most interesting feature - that wew can remember - about this spanish production license product based on the Renaul.t 5, is the fact that the sheetmetal mold of the front end in this case also was employed to end a boot at the other end of the car....

A visit to New Hampshire Motor Speedway

New Hampshire Motor Speedway
This was my second time on the track and it was just as exciting as the first time I was there with the Central New Hampshire Model T Club with my 1926 Model T coupe. On behalf of the Profile Automobile League Club, I want to personally thank Tom Blanchette, Director of Operations, New Hampshire Motor Speedway and his crew for providing our club members with a wonderful and most memorable day at the track. Without our club members participation this would not have been a successful tour and for making this a fun filled and memorable day.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Car grille

Just found this great car grille and wondered if anyone would be so kind as to tell me what it is, if you know. There are no distinctive marks on it but it did have a Fiat adhesive sticker on it, which makes me think it could be from a Fiat. Found in Italy. Any information would be much appreciated. Many thanks.

VW in Croatia Normal 0 21 false false false NL X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

I thought you might be interested in this photo for the Post War section. I saw this VW last week in the centre of Makarska, Croatia. It is lying in a car park by the side of the local police station and I imagine it has been impounded for some reason. It is open to the weather and  the interior is suffering. The windscreen modifications prevent the fitting of a hood but you might think that it would have been covered by a plastic sheet to keep it weathertight!

Best Regards,

Howard Morgan.

Nice shot of an XK 120 escaping for the photographer Herbert Kohle. Registration and nice cobble stoned street suggest this is Portugal, or ...?

Postwar advert touting Prewar cars

Postwar advert touting Prewar cars
I came across this Dutch 1975 MGB GT advert from two great websites for free car brouchures.

1.) http://storm.oldcarmanualproject.com/ 
2.) http://www.brochuremuseum.nl/blfolders/mg/mgbgt75nl12.html

As you will note there a Hispano Suiza Alphonso in the front left corner and a prewar MG in the back right.  It also appears as if the Gentalman is leaning against a prewar car hood. It can't be from the Hispano Suiza....So what is it from?
