    Sounds like more fun than here. :)
    Recovering from a small surgery and bound to just walking small distances in my area so in weeks didn't see anything more interesting than Trabant or Beetle... :D

    I'm sorry to hear that and I hope you recover quickly so you can get back out and see some interesting cars.

    So is it my turn? If so, here's one that shouldn't really be hard to crack at all. I just felt the thread desperately needed a little color. Bonus points for naming the event, year, and driver.

    Racing Sports Cars knows of only two instances when an OSCA was raced with Nr. 32. In both instances Jim Hall was driver, year was 1956. Races were at Mansfield and Eagle Mountain but I'm not familiar with these tracks so I won't guess. I only found that car, probably a MT4, had a 1500 cc engine. Problem is, this design was quite new in 1956., so I really expected some later date, when such design was more common...

    You were right to expect a later date, as this is not an MT4 but a later car.

    And Racing Sports Cars has very limited information on this event, so it's not a good source for this particular challenge.

    Make: OSCA
    Model: ????
    Year: post-1956
    Driver: Italian
    Event: European (but not Italian)

    Thought so but I believe that some MT4s were also rebodied that way... Will keep on searching

    Well done on the cc Wayne.

    Looks like an OSCA 750S?

    While this overall design was shared with the 750cc cars of the same period, the car shown here is not a 750.

    Just a guess due to some styling details... Does it have any relation to Ghia-Aigle?

    Correct, of course. The body had a cd of 0.2-0.22. Increased top speed from 108km/h to 140km/h and improved fuel consumption by 30%

    Wayne, is it possible that one day you might post up the answer before any of us post a picture? ;)

    As you can see, this is a very serious automobile and all passengers must remain serious while seated in the cockpit. Drivers, not so much.

    What's challenging is deciphering that second digit.
