Triumph's 8C Masterpiece

Triumphs 8C Masterpiece

The eight-cylinder Triumph Dolomite is one of those mysterious prewar supercars that seems more of a legend than a reality. Few enthusiasts have had the opportunity to examine one up close, and for years the model was shrouded in mystery. How many were built? What were they built for? Was the engine really a direct copy of the Alfa 8C? If you pick up this month’s issue of The Automobile magazine, all will be revealed.

In fact, only one complete car was built by Triumph, with a second built up slightly later by Robert Arbuthnot’s High Speed Motors. The two cars have recently been reunited for the first time since World War Two to celebrate the publication of a new book on the fabled model by Jonathan Wood, which is due to be published early in 2018.

From the family album: white mystery sports car

From the family album: white mystery sports car
Stan Allen's cousin found this photograph of his father sitting behind the wheel of a 2-door sports saloon. The photograph is taken in Australia, probably somewhere around 1938. He is curious to know the year and make of the vehicle for his family tree.

Does anybody know what car we are looking at? And is this car with license 36-532, still around? Please, leave a comment if you know more. Hopefully, together we can solve this problem.

Whatisit? PreWar Christmas Quiz day 6

The last part of our six-day quiz could be very well be the hardest one to solve. The remains of this once luxury car were found in a peat bog near Gotenburg. Only 500 of this particular model were made and its nickname was Carioca, meaning an inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro. But don’t be fooled as it was also a popular dance in the country where this automobile was made.

You can now send in your answers of today and the previous five days, but do so BEFORE Wednesday, January 3 2017. PLEASE click the “Add new comment” box and tell us the six makes and possibly the model names as this will give you bonus points when we have multiple correct answers.

From the participants with all answers correct, four names will be drawn at random. The solution to the puzzle will be published on Saturday, January 6. All four winners will receive the famous PreWarCar T-shirt. Good luck and we hope you enjoyed this holiday season!
