    Not a Morgan. But it is a pre-war Grand Prix and Indy car.

    Here’s another angle: http://i49.tinypic.com/27z9g1i.jpg

    Clue #1: The engine you see was the first to have a major technical innovation.

    My pre-war knowledge isn’t great. I’ll guess at some model of Duesenberg.

    Clue #2: It’s a marque that still exists.

    I really don’t think it is, but I’ll guess Alfa Romeo because I’m struggling to think of any pre-war manufacturers that it looks like it could be.

    Not an Alfa either.

    Clue #3: The car is painted in it’s country’s racing color (but in a different shade).

    Renault never used the French blue afaik.

    Here’s the whole thing: http://i48.tinypic.com/majtwj.jpg

    Notice that it has two seats, to give you an idea of it’s age.

    Wow, that was much taller than I thought it would be. I thoughts it would be from the 20’s, or maybe even 30’s.

    Peugeot l45.

    That’s the one. Pre-war meant pre-WW1 in this case :P.

    It won the 1916 Indy 500. It’s engine, the same as in the L76, was the first to have a dual overhead camshaft. The outside also looks very modern for it’s day indeed.

    You’re up @matt90

    You are finding the car which is closest to the camera.

    The color and the tail lights make me think it’s a Ferrari, but I have no idea which model. Some kind of 512 perhaps?

    Edit: I think it’s a 312P.
