Le Zébre cars were nothing like as old as 1904. They were a sporting type of French small car and were advertised in the motoring journals in the very early nineteen-twenties. They are not to be confused with the Zebra, a French small single-cylinder car of about one hundred pounds which was marketed from 1910 until about 1914.
I was very interested in Mr. Elphick’s picture of the steam Sheppee car, but please notice the correct way to spell it. I don’t think they made very many steam cars; the one illustrated is 1912. But they made a number of light steam lorries and exported a good many, especially to Zululand. These were advertised from 1906 to 1914. In the early nineteen-twenties they made a neat i.c. engine attachment for cycles, called the Cyklaid; and also motor accessories.
