Category Morris Minor[edit]

In this image

London Mill Hill Station Road geograph-3074050-by-Ben-Brooksbank.jpg

the car inthe foreground is a Morris Oxford. The only Minor is in the left-hand backgound ??? Chevin (talk) 13:03, 15 August 2012 (UTC)

Yes, an in the background there are also two Austin A50's, an Austin A40, a BMC ADO16 and some other automobiles I'm not able to identify. - Herranderssvensson (talk) 15:49, 16 August 2012 (UTC)
Apologies for jumping in on your talkpage, I removed this image from the categories of the background cars and placed them in image notes instead. Also, nice work on the Town & Country categories. Best, mr.choppers (talk)-en- 17:58, 17 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks, mate! I guess my sometimes over-enthusiastic categorizing might need some tidying up ;) I should have used the “&”-sign for those old Chryslers, though. “Fort men fel…” - Herranderssvensson (talk) 05:41, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

File:Classic Bentley, VJI 5305.jpg[edit]

Hi, many thanks for recategorizing this image. :-) I'm far from being a Bentley expert, so I have no clue about whether this is an original or replica car - would you be willing to explain why you're saying it's a replica here, please, to satisfy my curiosity? Thanks. Mike Peel (talk) 19:11, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Hello Mike! I’m certainly no expert either but some fakes are so obvious it doesn’t take much knowledge to disclose them. First of all, let’s state that judging from the general design of this vehicle, with its sweeping front fenders and free standing head lights, it is trying to look like a 1930s automobile. The first clue to this being a replica are the wheels. Cars of the 1930s have tall and narrow tires on large diameter rims. The rims, pressed steel or spoked rims, are generally painted in black or other dark colours. This car obviously have modern, wide radial tires. It’s hard to see the dimension but I would guess on 15 inch rims and to make things even worse they’re fitted with cheap after market wheel covers. The tires also have thin white walls which would fit a Plymouth Voyager or a Ford Windstar, not a vintage Bentley. Then there’s the radiator. 1930s automobiles have tall chrome plated radiator covers. This vehicle have its radiator cover, which looks suspiciously much like plastic, painted in body colour. And the capital “B” on the radiator is certainly not Bentley’s flying B, but probably the logo of the replica auto’s manufacturer. Third clue would be the windscreen. A 1930s automobile with an open top body would have a low, flat windscreen. The curved windscreen on this vehicle is way too large and with the black rubber sealing it’s more likely to fit a 1970s auto. Also the head lights are too small. It looks like 7 inch VW Golf lights fitted in new housings made to resemble a vintage head light. And the brightwork looks more like stainless steel than good old chrome platings. Come to think of it, I was wrong moving this picture to the Bentley replica category since there is actually nothing on this car that even resembles a vintage Bentley. I’m moving it to the more general replicas of automobiles category. -- Herranderssvensson (talk) 16:12, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
Many thanks for the explanation here - I've learned a lot from this. :-) I've moved the file to a better title, and will update the description accordingly (and include a static link to this discussion) in a minute for reference of anyone that looks at this image in the future. Thanks! Mike Peel (talk) 19:33, 12 September 2012 (UTC)

Opel Olympia image[edit]

I have uploaded a modified version of your picture. I have NOT repeat NOT overwritten your picture. I have uploaded a modified version with a different name.

I hope you do not mind what I did. We seem to be short of decent pictures of the Kadett based Opel Olympia. If I was a very polite person I would have asked you first. But somehow it is easier to show you what I have done than it would have been to try and explain what I thought I wanted to do, even if I had precisely known what I wanted to do before I tried to do it.......

Rolls Royce / Geneva Motor Show 2013[edit]

Hi, thanks for your big work on categorizing many of my photos from Geneva Motor Show 2013.

I think here you made a small mistake, because I remember that all the 3 photos show the same car:

but one time it was categorized as Drophead Coupe and two times as Phantom Series II.

By comparing with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dhc_1174_kofferraum.jpg , I corrected two of the photos => Drophead Coupé.

Noebu (talk) 17:10, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

My idea was this: The current facelifted Phantoms are all Series II Phantoms, regardless of body style: saloon, drop head or fixed head. But I’m certain you’re right. -- Herranderssvensson (talk) 19:20, 8 March 2013 (UTC)

Bentley 8-litre[edit]

That is a great photograph you have uploaded today. Are you able to supply any more details about that particular car? Many thanks, Eddaido (talk) 12:07, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your kind words. According to the museum in Köping the original owner of this automobile was Woolf Barnato himself. Or does that simply indicate it was impossible to find a customer before the bankruptcy? Anyway, in 1933 this magnificent automobile was sold to Swedish banker Torsten Kreuger, brother of the infamous match king Ivar Kreuger. In 1950 mr Kreuger donated the auto to Tekniska museet in Stockholm which in turn has lent it to Bil & Teknikhistoriska Samlingarna in Köping. Here is a link to Tekniska museet's inventory list: tekniskamuseet.se -- Herranderssvensson (talk) 12:59, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
You may find this easy to believe. I failed to mark this page and so I didn't know you had replied and came back just now to write to you having forgotten that I'd done so! Thank you very much for that link to the museum's catalogue and I was able to rapidly find out a great deal about it. It has been suggested it is possibly the most original 8-litre in existence. All I want now is to have all these pictures here under the right licence for them to be displayed in Wikipedia! Many thanks and best wishes, Eddaido (talk) 13:25, 26 September 2013 (UTC)
Postscript: I think Barnato engineered the "bankruptcy" or maybe just let it happen because he was sick and tired of W O Bentley's talent for spending his (Barnato's) money. WO had already been through 2 or 3 other fortunes (including his own) and was beginning to make a dent in Barnato's. I'm sure Barnato would have done something rough much earlier if he hadn't liked the product so much and perhaps he did not like the prospect of the cars being destroyed? I don't know either!

Category:Riley RM[edit]

Hi, I've reverted the recategorizations you made to this Riley RM category. The images concerned are apparently unidentifiable (I spent many hours over them some time ago). I think that, almost without exception, they should be thrown away unless they are of historic interest to someone. We seem to have no shortage of quite good properly catalogued images of all these cars. Is it possible to ascertain what sizes their engines are through European registries? Otherwise I think they should be deleted (with gratitude because they filled the bill for a while). Regards, Eddaido (talk) 11:36, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

I have checked Lars-Göran Lindgren’s pictures with the Swedish licence register and moved them to their proper category, based on that information. I have no opinion on whether the rest should be deleted or not. Kind regards -- Herranderssvensson (talk) 12:17, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Thank you HAS. Best wishes, Eddaido (talk) 06:50, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
