  1. I'm waging that it's the same car. Yonkers NY Herald Statesman 1976 Grayscale - 6659.pdf
  2. Through another forum site I am happy (if not relieved) to at last have found out what these Peugeot Cuff Valve engines looked like. WEIRD! But then, they are French, so what would one expect! My suspicion - surmise only - is that it was done the way it was to circumvent patents on the Knight & Burt-McCollum (single sleeve & twin sleeve engines respectively) - but I stand to be corrected if anyone out there knows better. I have to say that I can see it looking more at home in a marine application after having been scaled up about a hundred times or so. And who was the engineer who dreamt it up? (and what was he smoking..?) Was such a design (if that word can be used here) used elsewhere - and if so, where?
  3. Hi Ivan - my understanding of the Type 156 Peugot is that it has a sleeve valve engine. Is this the same as your "cuff valve engine", or is the cuff valve system something else altogether? Looking forward to some clarification, please. Regards, Geoff Adelaide
  4. Hi Ivan ... are we any closer to being able to see these images or have a description please? Regards, Geoff C. Adelaide
  5. No dramas, Bob - you hadn't previously mentioned the sign, I think. I'd still be inclined, though, to regard the different axle & kingpin arrangements as a product of a model (ie year..) change, rather than being the difference between a 2 seater and 4 seater. Perhaps there was an indication of that on the above mentioned sign ?
  6. Well.... if you want to believe that, go for it. I'm not buying it, though. I'll keep looking to find a Highwheeler which has the king pin/axle setup like your "Kiblinger" and see if it is indeed a Kiblinger - or something else. In any case - what basis did you have for picking on Kiblinger? There were at least 77 different makes produced in the US. Refer "Antique Automobile" March 1963 issue.
  7. Absolutely correct. So...:confused:
  8. It's possible, but if so, the axle ends are quite different on this 1909 model A... 1909 Kiblinger Model A Images. Photo: 07-Kiblinger-DV-08-NCM-01.jpg :confused:
  9. And another one from Louisville.... Whatever this is, it isn't an IHC - the frame/chassis is quite different.
  10. Bravo Deudeuche86 - les images sont superbe! Et une autre voiturette française ... notre Sizaire et Naudin 1909. Seulement un cylindre de 1600cc. C'est très belle! Et bientôt nous aurons un Citroen deux chevaux de 1989! Adelaide, Sud Australie...
  11. It's not good following up one's own post, but I just found this site Search Results which confirms in my mind that the shots posted by Grandpa are from Harlem race track. I've yet to be convinced re the first post of mine, although Harlem seems the most likely...
  12. Great shots, Gramps ... photos 1 & 2 are the same track as my original image post, and photo 2 almost looks to be the same car, although it gives the impression of there being a second radiator behind the first (how can that be?). Gol-darn, but I still don't know what make it is! Thanks a lot for your help ... maybe someone will come up with the answer.
  13. Thanks guys, I don't have the photo, it came from another forum, and the guy who posted it originally thought it might have been Kiser but can't help with extra information. Being able to magnify the shot would certainly help, but it's not possible, unfortunately. If it's Chicago, it might possibly be the Harlem Race Track, but I haven't been able to match the stand in the photo with what pictures I've been able to find of the Harlem Track. From memory, it has to be taken prior to (August?) 1905, when Kiser had his accident, losing a leg.
  14. For the USA folk ... what, who, when and where? Thanks guys...
  15. Ivan, I think it was just the tank suspension system as designed by Christie, rather than a tank as a whole..? regards, Geoff Chennells.
