What You Know About Cars ?

Report on Problem No. 5.

UR last month’s puzzle proved t the most difficult of the series to date, for only 10% Of the entries were correct in stating that the car was an Excelsior. The photograph was taken in the pits during the Essex Club’s Six Hours Race in 1927, and the driver was F. H. Hayward. The first correct solution to be opened on July 15th was that sent in by : R. Broad, 23, Ormonde Road,

East Sheen, S.W.14.

to whom we have sent a cheque for one guinea.

By far the most popular solution received was O.M. which polled over 50% of the entries. This was no doubt due to a superficial similarity between the radiators of the Excelsior and the O.M. As usual, an immense amount of variey

was shown in the various solutions. Here are a few widely divergent types which show that the size of the car impressed different people in a different way :— Frazer-Nash, Lea Francis, Fiat, Invicta, F. N., Austro-Daimler, Diatto, Wolseley Hornet, Alfa Romeo, and M.G.
