All answers are models of cars (with my usual warning about spelling variations). You are not required to give the maker's names, although "I've got a little list" in case they're wanted.

Please don't post answers, give others thinking time. You can PM me if you're stuck and want a quick(er) answer, or post to the list to claim 50% or 75% success (or100%). or to say which questions are really bugging you. But Please don't give it all away too soon.
