Unknown car.

Author: Joanna Monday, 04 December 2017

Unknown car.Hello! This photo was taken probably in 1930s in Poland. The car belonged to my great grandfather (in a passenger seat) and his friend who used it to drive visitors to the health resort called Iwonicz Zdrój. Sadly the car was confiscated by the army when the WWII started.
I would love to know which car model was that. Can you help me? Thanks!

American car in uk ?

Author: Rob Seymour Wednesday, 08 November 2017

American car in uk ?Hello experts, I’ve been sent this photo by a friend found amongst her family history papers. We’d love to identify it.   We believe there was an American connection in the family and it looks American to my untrained eye.

Any more accurate identification would be most welcome

1936 Armstrong Siddeley 17 hp Saloon

1936 Armstrong Siddeley 17 hp SaloonThis is my 1936 Armstrong Siddeley short chassis 17 hp saloon.  
I have been restoring it since December 14 2016 and apart from some issues along the way has been on the road since July.  Lots of midnight oil has been burnt especially in the shed heater earlier in the year.  It was originaly with the experimental department for the AS works before being returned to the factory and painted Black for re-sale, I prefered the production line colour and this is a close as I could get to the original colour but feel it is a great improvment over Black.

1938 German Ford Eifel

Author: Laurens Sunday, 12 November 2017

1938 German Ford EifelI bought this car as pictured in  Ft. Wayne, Indiana, USA, in 1975. It is partially dissembled at present time. It sits on a "Y" chassis with mechanical rod actuated brakes, 10 hp engine and 3 spd transmission. The bumpers on the car are not correct, but correct v shaped damaged ones came with it. The body is not the normal roadster or cabriolet style, as it has an area behind the seat and the spare tire mount behind a small rumble seat lid(but no seat) on the surface.  The windshield post is wood with metal formed around it, with the little turn signal arms that come out. It also has wood through-out the body. I think the top is still original hartz cloth. 
  Does anyone know the value of this car or how rare it might be?  I saw one other similar on the Internet but was obviously old pictures of one driving on the street in an European country.
