    Spotted in Brisbane

    A friend of mine emailed this pic taken in Wynnum Brisbane, the car on the left is a 5cv but not sure about the one on the right.

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    Not my area of expertise, but didn't Arthur have a Bugatti down there at one stage?

    Certainly doesn't look like a Bugatti. Just maybe an Amilcar (looks a bit wide to me for that) or a Salmson. There are a few other things vaguely similar - could even be a Daracq for example. Or a special built a long time ago, but it doesn't have that look about it.

    To me it certainly is no Amilcar (I have one), yes it might be a Salmson, no BNC. If you like Chris I can post it on my page, a few knowledgable people come along there.
