Well I guess if you have read the Talbot review then you know what this model is. It is, as Kev says, a Cabriollet Brissonneau and Lotz (1957) built around a Renault 4 CV.

I know what it is, but mainly because I cheated to find out, so I'm not going to say the answer. it's an obscure one though!

Yes Rob, me too.
This company was founded by James (Lehigh University Class of 1884), his brother William and their partner, George Lewis Weiss, in the city of Warren, Ohio. They believed that they could build a better horseless carriage than the Winton cars owned by Weiss (an important Winton stockholder) and, James being himself a mechanical engineer, had some ideas for improvement on the designs of current automobiles.
He built his first on November 6, 1899.

i was totally off base thinking of British Logos.... But thanks to the clue and Google, I have since found it. Although a trawl through the British logos found some interesting little items.

I suppose it was naive of me but yes Jordan you are right!! (Double bugger with brass knobs on!) Just for that, the next one will be impossible. How about I show a section through a left gonad and you have to tell me which famous racing driver it used to belong to??? I've checked out Google and the answer isn't on there!!

I actually thought it was an FJ, but the grill didn`t look right so i looked at the model that came before and after it.
