    Model A Keith,
    What a beautiful work of art that Amilcar is. It would look so good in my garage, in the
    Spot formerly taken by the 35 Morgan F4.

    In the past you have posted imaged of Bedelias, how about some shots of the chassis
    and bodywork framing. It would be a great help in the project I am giving serious
    thought to.

    The name puzzled me, the initial K suggesting a Breton connection. Apparently it was merely a fanciful phonetic rendering of the surname of the founding brothers Quervel.

    Just how fast were cars like this? I'm sure the terror factor was over the top. Bob

    Especially for the passenger, sitting above the axle. I hope there was a handhold.

    Now that is pretty neat!

    A JD Harley, converted to full overhead, and (I think) twin carbs. Bet it goes like stink!! I'd like to see more, even if it is off topic.

    I watched "Those Daring Young Men and their Jaunty jalopies" today on cable. Really dumb movie but the cars were interesting.

    My first thought was that these will all be "made for movies" cars using all modern parts but I was quite surprised, in the opening minutes, to see an open hood and a banger with twin overhead cams!

    I know some of them were made for the movie but some seem to have been actual vintage cars. Anybody have any info on theses cars?

    The Internet Movie Cars Database
    (http://www.imcdb.org/movie.php?id=64688) has photographs and brief subpages for many of the cars, but a number of them are simply listed as 'unknown'...
