Oily rag Delahaye
I was recently out working in one of our Citroën Traction Avants, and saw this beauty parked in a public car park. I have never seen an oily rag Delahaye before, but after seeing this car in all its honesty I think it's a huge pity there arent more of them.

Two fun period Hawaiian Pictures

Author: jeff Perkins Friday, 23 June 2017

Two fun period Hawaiian PicturesI spotted thes two pictures from the early days on a Hawaiian Historical Society photo series. I asked a friend who is a resident and native Hawaiian for her take on these is what she had to say:
 What cool photos!  Love's Bakery is still in existence.  It's based in Honolulu (island of Oahu), but distributes products throughout all the islands.
The 2nd photo indicates "Lihue Store" on the car.  Lihue is on the island of Kauai so I'm not familiar with that store.  However, looking at the store window behind, it shows Schuman Carriage which is an auto dealership on Oahu.
Also, if you enlarge the photo, you'll see a street sign on the upper left side.  It says "Merchant".  There is a Merchant St. in downtown Honolulu, so I'm guessing this photo was also taken in Honolulu.
Love the cars!  :)   Thanks for sharing!

IVVCC International Gordon Bennett Rally 2017

Following on from the Pioneer Run, this weekend the 9th to 11th June 2017 we had the IVVCC International Gordon Bennett Rally commemorating the 114th anniversary of the 1903 Gordon Bennett Race. It was a very well organised event, with 155 cars taking part. The event was based in Mount Wolseley Hotel Tullow, Co. Carlow. The route took us through the quiet and the very scenic roads of counties Carlow, Kildare and Wicklow. Our car no. 17 is a 1911 Renault AX with sisters Katie Hughes driver and Julie Gruenfeldova navigator. A great weekend was had by all and we were delighted to receive The Alan Wilson Memorial trophy Concours d’Elegance.
