    how about a clue, country of origin, decade of manufacture, # of cylinders, something.

    Never mind. I surrender, although it does look a little like an early to mid 50's Alfa.

    Every mg I ever saw had the MG crest on the top of the front grill. No crest here, but, the grill does have a distinctive "v" shape within it.

    plus the wheel is on the wrong side, this would never have been an exported brit car, would it?

    ARRRGGGG, I promised myself I'd give up.
