  1. The change occured in 1954:https://classiccarcatalogue.com/RENAULT_1954.html
  2. The factory-built body Sedan version of the Italian 1919-26 Fiat 501 had a similar door configuraton, also the first closed Citroën was equipped with asymmetrically placed doors.
  3. Ad for 1937 Cord in Sweden. Instead of Philipsons it's now Lindblads who is the Swedish general agent
  4. Automobile Corps. of the White Guard, 1918 Civil war in Finland
  5. Prince Carl Johan of Sweden in 1937 with his Lincoln Zephyr
  6. Haven't been posting here so much lately, as I am planning the funeral of a quite close relative. One of the first persons to be buried at the 1829 inaguarated main cemetary here in Helsinki was Countess Natalia Steinheil, born von Engelhardt. Walking up the road to the cementary's main entrance I sometimes have imagined Baron Vladimir Steinheil from Moscow visiting his relatives' tombs in Finland just before WWI, his magnificent 60 hp Gräf-Stift with Armbruster coachwork parked outside the wall.
  7. Baroness Avanzo on an American Classic Car site immediately brings me flashbacks of her driving a big Packard Twin-Six, witch inspired Enzo Ferrari much later on to launch his own V-12 engine. There is also a picture of her behind the steering wheel of an early 20s Buick.https://www.italianways.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/maria-antonietta-avanzo-04.jpg
  8. 1920 Napier 40/50, competitor to the Rolls-Royce "Silver Ghost". A more modern aircraft inspired engine with overhead camshaft. Bodies often by the in house coachbuilder Cunard, as also in the this case, was a drawback compared with RR. Strikes at the factory didn't either help to win back the title "The Best Car in the World"
  9. Front wheel drive 1936-39 Adler Trumpf Junior[1E], 1 Litre engine with 25 horsepower. Twin spare tires non orginal.
  10. Lancia Aprilia & Ardea, the later was introduced in 1939 and had an engine displacement of under 1 Litre. Both cars have narrow angle V-4 cylinder blocks.
  11. Not a wrecked car, but horrible to even think about having an accident in a car with the petrol tank in the engine compartement. 1934-36 Steyr 100, then the entry level model. Pillarless four door body neither mine cup of tea. Quite lovely rear-view with spare wheel cover and split window although
