Mal, it's located beyond the past.
Please find attached another three pics, taken in India. Don't know if the given annual details are correct.

Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson; born 14 May 1943 is an Icelandic politician, who was the fifth President of Iceland from 1996 to 2016 [source: wikipedia].
This car was our first carforce number one, a couple of years ago.

As often before, Tito and his cars. Visible in the last pic below is a mounted rod antenna for his radiotelephone.

Interesting photo, and some unusual features including non-stock radiator cap and fender lights. And what appears to be painted wheels with chromium plated spokes. This wheel configuration is quite popular today on restorations though I can't ever recall seeing it listed as available back then. As I recall the wheel options were limited to painted wire spoke, all chromium plated wire spoke, wooden artillery, and disc (disteel).

Think this is a '40 Packard in Cairo, Egypt.

Caption reads "Opening of new Y.M.C.A. hostel by Gen. Wilson in old post office. Arrival of Gen. Sir Henry M. Wilson, just after alighting from car"

A Y.M.C.A. in Cario? Strictly for ex-pats? Still, an interesting photo and caption. Thanks for sharing.

Here is another period picture of plated spokes, which make the unlisted option more authentic than painted radiator shells on 32-34 eight cylinder cars for which I am still searching for one single verifiable period picture. I have two pictures from the late forties - Gordon Webber's 32 and an individual Custom 8 - but both may have been due to paint jobs.

Not my favorite, too ghetto, but period correct.
