Hi folks, I hope I've not posted this one before

To answer my own question, this one's been identified as a 1929 Willys-Overland Whippet (Four).

As the Overland has now been identified, does anyone have a suggestion as to this ancient machine's manufacturer?

Not that it's much help but the brickwork behind them is called "Flemish Garden Bond".

(Not a lot of people know that - to coin a phrase)

So how do you know that then?? Smile Smile I hadn't paid much attention to the brickwork until then.

The chap on the left is called Mr Potter, if that helps Wink

Where we used to live in Sunningdale, the Victorian houses in our lane had all been used for training brick layers in the different patterns or "bonds".

That got me interested in bricks. There is a vast and fascinating history of the subject.

How do you know the man's name?

Judging by the 12 spoke wooden wheels, the shape of the hubs, the mudguards and tiller steering, I would say it is an Oldsmobile from about 1903. It looks like the "curved dash" section is missing and has exposed some workings. The seat looks similar to others I have seen but I can't make out the sloping lighter shade part behind it. Perhaps it is not even part of the car? Close inspection suggests a desk/table against the wall with two glasses on it.!Cheers!

I think that you are correct, Ray. The curve of the footwell area certainly suggests that a curved dash would fit there.

Table with two glasses makes sense- some fortification for driver and passenger before setting off!

I am also interested in bricks. I have been known to build models of houses and industrial buildings, and making the brickwork correct is important.

Our house here in Derbyshire was built in 1920 but is more like a Victorian one. The man who built this place and two others nearby also lived in the lane and chose a local brick yard. The bricks are big and heavy in comparison to modern ones and are embossed "Waingrove metallic". They are incredibly hard and would have been awkward to work with.

Interestingly, just 1/2 mile from here, is an independent builder's merchants who have a "brick library". I keep meaning to take in a couple of my Tudor bricks which are longer and thinner than usual but I never seem to find the time. A fascinating subject.

I found this original 1903 Curved Dash Olds which on closer inspection shows an old repair to the front. Perhaps it was not uncommon for the front to break away on these cars.?

Hi
Looking for ideas about the ID of the drophead between the Farina and the A35.

No - a Roadster is more bulbous than that
