Doesn't look like a Rolls Royce to me - the front is quite different and the whole car looks too small.

Looks like a Renault to me. If only that chap at the front would move out of the way a bit, we could see if it had a 'coal scuttle' bonnet! I think the radiator is behind the bonnet and up against the windscreen like most Renault cars of this era.

I disagree with Zagato about the Renault theory, that looks like a regular curved panel rather than a radiator below the windscreen, and anyway a Renault of the era would have a flat top on the bonnet.

It's got me digging though, still poring over various books, but nothing found yet.

They do really seem to have taken over now don't they?

The Spammers that is.

So, the system we have here is not working, right?

When it gets to where there are more spams and junk mail than genuine posts it would seem the website/forum/webmaster/moderators or whoever has failed.

Sorry, but it seems now that the regulars are staying away by the busload while the annoying crap increases.

(I doubt there is anyone left interested enough to comment though!)
