Paul: Good guess I was just going to say that also, good luck!

Guess for today:

Nardi or perhaps Kurtis?

For a great site check out supercars.net. It has hundreds of great cars, not the one I wanted but it's worth a look. Also tamsoldracecarsite.net is a great site for racing pictures.

Thanks! Fingers crossed, but given last month's mystery car, I suspect that it will be a while before anyone gets it right ..... :lol:

Paul: I'm getting very frustrated at this point. I've gone to hundreds of sites with no luck. Almost done with the list from hymanltd.com too. These little manufactures are tough to track down.

Happy Hunting!

The Devlin was a good guess (neat cars those Devlins...)

Not Nardi, nor Kurtis...

(Just think of how much good all the research you're doing will come in handy for future Cars of the Month!) :)

Or perhaps, in your travels, you'll find something interesting to submit so you can stump the rest of us!

From where I sit, it almost looks like everyone has given up on September. I have a question: Does that hood with two humps fit over a DOC I6 like found in Jaguars? And the Devlin hint has to go somewhere, but my resources on this one are pretty thin. Later, SpridgetBoy

What about the 'hump' on the rear deck? For the spare tire? I don't think so! Also a funny place for an oil cooler or radiator. It looks like the dual front humps are for looks. Also note the high sill line, not one you would expect to see on a 'high' performance car. And the 'wire' wheels look like hub caps rather than real ones.
