Now here are some mysteries.  These photos & mentions have turned up in my research, but I can't connect them to current cars.  Can you help?


Steam Automobile, 1979, v21 #4, R. M. McKenzie circa 1957.  Unusual sedan body.
"Now a rich millionaire owns it, and won't sell it." [probably #23611]


Steam Automobile, 1958, v1 #1, Owner-driver Frank Lynon, Sydney Clement standing.

2000 VSCC tour - 1904 Stanley - which car is this?
1972, A R Egan owned a 1921 touring, a previous owner lived in Victoria - which car is this?
