If the owner agrees whats the issue ? There are some owners who dont want their names or details to be published so posting the snaps according to the rules of TBHP dosen't make a harmis in't it ?

No one has any issue if it is done with the owners permission/knowledge,
The person who posts the snaps may not publish the names or details, but others who see them can and may publish the names/details and thereby harming the owners interest.

Very nice photo. to be thanked.
This is definitely not a RR, maybe a Wolseley. Maybe not even 1906, I would say nearer to 1910.
Can you get a clearer copy, maybe a scan?

The red car is a Karmann Ghia convertible. Dunno if its a genuine cabrio or a chop-top.

Good to see the 170V is better state. It used to lie in a shed behind the property.
