  1. Despite my best efforts, I am no further forward
  2. Well that wasn’t easy. I must be the only one who actually likes the front end styling, and I know where the headlights came from!
  3. That is interesting, I am holidaying in Devon at the moment, only a few miles from Loddiswell. I might go there to see if anything remains of Quantum Sports Cars.
  4. Well I deserve to fail this week, it is so obviously a member of the Borgward family. Even with poor signal coverage I should have got this one.
  5. Yeah, looks familiar to me too, but it isn’t what I thought it should be. Luckily enough, I am on vacation again, in a field in Devon, UK. Lovely place but not much signal coverage so I'll just have to wait for the big reveal on Sunday. Some may sympathise but most will recognise a cop out when they see one. C'est la Vie.
  6. I learn something new almost every week on Autoquiz.
  7. 53-54 Plymouth, Cranbrook or Belvedre
  8. Do you know when this car was built? I suspect that it must be quite recent, but there seems to be very little about it on line which is surprising. If you don’t have a tape measure handy, it would be very difficult to decide whether it was a Mercury or a Ford. Obviously I guessed wrong.
  9. 40 Ford?, on second thoughts it looks more like a 41. But considering that the 41 is truly rare (see what I did there?) it is more likely to be a 47. My final offer.
  10. This one is a ‘62 apparently. I was trying to guess the age based on the belt moulding, the slim grooved example shown here featured on a ‘60 sedan but I didn’t find any positive evidence of when it appeared on the Champ, I wrongly went for ‘63. Most examples I saw had a much broader moulding that tapered away to a point at the rear edge of the fender, some had a thin moulding extending across the door too. I even saw some with the “flyaway” fender moulding from the ‘62 Lark, were they factory fitted? I don’t know. As several people pointed out, it is very difficult to age a Champ accurately. Whoops, Michael beat me by two minutes on the age, fair enough, it was him who told me anyway.
