How is everyone/anyone going with this? I'm struggling to make 75% of them...proving that every year I know less than I thought I did!

I've got a lot, but some of them are so similar to each other that only a true geek will get them all.

The entrant with the highest score was Danny with 17 correct. Very few entries were received which make me wonder if there is a demand for any further such quizzes, if there is I am happy to compile them from time to time, but if not I see little point in doing more.

I have to admit to getting the Wolseley wrong (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blush.gif) Ihad convinced myself it was a Magnette and I was looking at the bonnet closing edge and not the wing to whatever it's called joint.
Thanks for the quiz Flying W. I did notice that log- ins and posts were well down during this period anyway...perhaps these quizzes need to become sort of sticky or at least be bumped up every day.

Good quiz! I struggled with the AC and the Lloyd. Also I do not think Lloyd was a British make?

The Lloyd car depicted in the quiz was without any doubt a British Lloyd: Lloyd Cars Ltd was a British motor manufacturer, founded by Roland Lloyd (1904–65), son of a garage owner, and based in Patrick Street, Grimsby, Lincolnshire, England between 1936 and 1951. Two models were made, separated by World War II; the company was unusual for a small manufacturer in making nearly all components in-house. After car production ceased the company continued in general engineering until 1983. During World War II the company made components for Rolls-Royce Merlin aircraft engines.

The other Lloyd make: Norddeutsche Automobil und Motoren GmbH (North German Automobile and Engines) was a German automobile manufacturer, created in 1908 and owned by the Norddeutscher Lloyd shipping company. The factory was in Bremen. Many of the products of the company and its successors were badged with the Lloyd marque.

The German Lloyd marque had no connection with the British Lloyd Cars Ltd company active between 1936 and 1951.
