Hi Max
Lots of work, fully vaccinated and a 1939 Graham "sharknose" sedan.

Hi Rich,
Right on the money, a '38-39 Sharknose it is. In this case the shark's nose is much prettier than its tail :D .
Your turn now.

HI Max
I just don't have anything good for the quiz at the moment. Please pass my turn on to someone else so I don't hold up the quiz anymore.

Thanks
Rich

Hi Max,

after some time to think about it I decided to take Your offer with the first shot with a new question. I think this pic could be a suitable found on the Russian photo archives www.photo-war.com. So the question is, who can ID this vehicle, where two German soldiers are sitting on the motor hood.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Max,

very good!! It is not a Saurer SGS or SGA 4500, but You are very, very near to it.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Bert,
Well, the windscreen doesn't look to me like the BT 4500 or 4-BRDv. Plus, I haven't seen the tool holders on the bonnet on other models. I also considered the OM Titano, which looks similar, but is RHD.
Cheers,
Max

Hi Max,

excuse me, please! I was checking all my pics of Saurer heavy trucks and I must admit that You are right. It must be a Saurer SGS or SGA 4500. First I thought, that it is a BT 4500, but You are totally right, that the windscreen doesn't look to me like the BT 4500 and I have also seen the tool holders on the bonnet only on the type SGS or SGA 4500. Sorry, once more. Please, go on with the quiz.

Best regards

Bert

Thank you, Bert. Yes, the models are very similar indeed, especially in that heavily cropped photo.

Max,
I remember this image from a couple of months ago.. it's a Unic S18.
My photo is of a bus dated 1934.
Regards, Rob.

Thank you very much, Max.
It took me quite a while to identify the vehicle in this photograph; once I did identify it I found the image very useful as I was preparing a set of scale drawings of that vehicle at the time.
See what you think.
Rob.

Hi Rob,
It looks like a Hanomag Kfz. 1, either a 4/20 PS or a Rekord.
