The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1984-1985) Kooshmeister USOnly the first series ran from 1984-1985. The episode featuring the MMC horseless carriage, The Problem of Thor Bridge, aired in 1991, and is from the season/series called The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes which ran from 1991-1993 (including the full-length TV movies).

How do we resolve this? Combine them and list "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" as 1984-1995? Or keep them separate and remove the MMC from here?

Sunbar UKIt matches this MMC 10hp tonneau from 1902 front, bonnet and firewall shape are the same, only the position of the single headlamp is different.

.....Also another new make, :)

The actual car, F89, is shown here on the 1988 London to Brighton run.

The picture description on the site I think indicates DR14 is the same car, if so it was re-registered in 1989.

The vehicle details for DR 14 are:

Date of Liability 01 11 2008
Date of First Registration 21 04 1989
Year of Manufacture 1902
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 2042CC
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type Petrol
Export Marker Not Applicable
Vehicle Status Licence Not Due
Vehicle Colour GREEN

"MMC"

Motor Manufacturing Company Ltd.
Drapers Field
Coventry
Warwickshire
1895-1908

Originally known as the Great Horseless Carriage Company Ltd. and supplied with parts by Daimler. The name change to the Motor Manufacturing Company came about in 1898.

MMC cars appear in the annual London to Brigton runs but not this actual car

Quote Or a special class for such very old things. Like for the Benz already listed.

Like 'all-that-old-stuff-class' :D

We could give time periodes (Edwardian, Vintage, Veteran, ...). This might be good for giving a time stamp for all the vehicles without an exact production date. Useful if one could search for e.g. "all race cars from 1950 - 1960".

But for now we could list 'old stuff' in the existing categories. A new category 'motor tractor' in the trucks section would be best, as there are other petrol/diesel engined vehicles of this kind. Other steam engined vehicles like road-rollers and plowing engines have already a class, the rest fits into 'simple truck' or 'motor tractor'.

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1984-1985) Alexander DEIn this film there are a lot of horse powered vehicles, the forerunners of our cars: carriages. Actually the first cars were often called 'horseless carriages'.

Let me show a few images from the series:

A lot of the names used for carriages are still being used for motor vehicles.

And two more images from the time when one travelled by train:

It is a Burrell Steam Tractor. So far I cannot say what model it is. Probably a 5 nhp type from the early 20th century -- therefore a bit too young for the film (~1890), but fits very well into the scene.

N.B.: I gave no class, as this vehicle does not fit into any of the existing classes. A new class could either be 'tractor'/'motor tractor' (not farming, but for all vehicles used for pulling trailers without being a truck) or a special class 'steam engine'.
