    I didn't even know of an automobile named the Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire... that name was used on their turbojet engine that was manufactured at the same time.
    Used on many Brit planes and licensed (licenced?) in the US for many of our planes also.

    Kidding above of course. Per Google:
    Produced between 1947 and 1982 the Citroën HY was a very popular van in France and some other European countries. Even today there are quite a lot around, often used as mobile shops or restaurants.

    It’s an Opel Corsa Bakkie, smaller than the related Holden.

    I don't have much except to say I would date the car on the left at circa 1922 and the car on the right more like 1908-1910.

    Metropolitans were made in England for Nash.
    Were essentially re-bodied Austins, which was part of BMC, like the Mini.
