    Ack, I should've noticed yours is parked on cobbles and mine's on tarmac. Ah well...

    My bad. :) These old cars are just ... well ... too old and obscure. Good fun though.

    Krikkit - you leave me between you not wanting double posts and John wanting a new post for each new car, so they turn up in his notifications? Argh! Anyway, clue o' clock;

    Interestingly, it was also named after it's top speed.

    I can forgive multiple posts when separated by a few hours, but within a few minutes you may as well just edit it up. :)

    I can't believe how easy this actually was! That's an early 1950's Panhard Dyna X for sure but to be more specific... X85?

    EDIT 1: It is an X85 but I'm not sure about the year. Could be late 1940's for all I know.

    EDIT 2: Another (somewhat tricky perhaps) idea I originally used a few months ago. Let's see how it fares here:

    Don't have a clue, maybe Japanese? Hint?

    Looks like some sort of microcar?

    I would say it's a similar size to the Reliant Scimitar from that window shape and the rear hatch.

    It does look a bit like the Suzuki SC100, weird little things. But it isn't one of those...

    Not Japanese. The manufacturer is unambiguously popular, so was the model in its heyday.

    Not at all. Funny observation though. You'll understand my amusement when you see the car in its entirety. :)

    I'm not sure what it is (a seatbelt perhaps?) but it's not relevant to solving the puzzle. In short, the car is a standard production model.

    Shape is almost right for the Fiat 850 Bertone Coupe but not enough chrome.

    I would say Studebaker Avanti or Avanti 2 but I haven't found a door button/handle that matches yet.

    nah, window shape is close but the belt line is not.

    It's not a US product at all. On top of that, the manufacturer is alive and kicking.

    Oh, and the Fiat associations (however justified, especially John's 850 Bertone find) won't get you far either.

    The whole shape is like a renault alpine, but something about that pillarless door is not right. The Alpine has a plastic moulding behind the quarter windows too not painted bodywork, and definitely doesn't have those mirrors.

    Unless it's an older model I'm not aware of.
