Hi Fred
B-Bob credits the image 'G.L.', which I think means Graham Little, a prolific automobile image poster. Nearly 13 thousand images on Flickr.
If that turns out to be correct then hopefully Mr Little can be prevailed on for further info - too many images for me to search through anyway, but a great stream to dabble in.....

cheers
Derek

Sorry!

I was looking at the later picture. Talk about the radiator and I twigged I must have been looking at the wrong picture. I see now you are talking about the little car. Why read when there are pictures? I can't even make a false confession on that one except that it looks typically French from one of the hundreds of builders around Paris. Same front suspension as my Peugeot.

You gents are too good for me to competesmiling smiley
Linking through from there reveals that it's an AVA, but the museum description plate calls it 'a mystery in the Mahy collection'. High resolution image of car from slightly different angle here.

Rock, Paper, Google.

I went to the Paper (books). John Bolster and Georgano say "AN". Looking at the badge again in new light, it makes sense.

Allain et Niguet, Kremliin-Bicêtre, Seine. 2 cylinder. Around 1922. Not many details available.

Here is another Google sighting:

Very confusing, some folk seem to call it an AZA as well. Poor little car doesn't know what it is (sigh).

Whatever it might be it's a lovely little car and so close to being a cyclekart as it stands it could almost be welcomed into the fold.



Additional information: Photos below by Marticelli, who emailed me the following information

These are pics I personally took when visiting the Mahymobiles Museum in Leuze, Belgium some years ago.

The information about this little car, which is definitely called an AZA, came from the car's owner, Ivan Mahy, who with his brother owns most of the vehicles in both this museum and the well known Autoworld Museum in the centre of Brussels.

Interesting car, the Marmon Missle. The real car is for sale right now on Bring a Trailer.

Here's a car that was often overlooked in competition, but still had an excellent racing pedigree. The Singer '9'. This is a 1937 Singer '9' special.

If this isn't a so-complex-it's-silly CK inspiration, I don't know what is.

I'm dreaming about my second one before I even build the first one!

Nice, that would be a very straightforward bodyshell to build.

Hello to all,
Not originally vintage Grand-Prix automobile, but something as ancient Cycle-Kart by itself...
Some details could be useful or not.
Ciao, Zoran

That place looks a lot like the Microcar Museum here in the states. Cool car.
