    I took this last week in Prague and I'm trying to find out make\model\year. Google searches have been unsuccessful. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    I can give you the name of that car Monday. I can't think of the name of it. It's like a license built Simca from the late fifties.

    Thanks Bill, I've never heard of a Simca and probably would not have found this one.

    Dagnabbit, Bill, the suspense is killing me. I've gone through every obscure car reference I know of and I'm stumped. The name appears to start with "M" and have 8 characters. Unfortunatley, knowing that did me less than no good.

    Like I said, it starts with a W ....

    :shocked: I guess they don't consider rings, wrist pins, end caps and such as "moving".
