The OHC Norton engines are probably worth something. They are at least Internationals and possibly early Manx.

It is a Manx engine. It was in a fire.
Almost everyone who has sold vehicles has at least one regret. One of mine was an OHC Norton. When I bought it, it had been stored in a shed for many years and the owner knew little about it. I thought that it was an Inter. Another local guy who was into old bikes wanted it and I sold it for 60 English pounds - a small profit. The new owner took it to a vintage meet where it was recognized by Eric Oliver, the former world sidecar champion, as a special 600cc Manx works engine from one of his bikes. He wanted it and traded a mint Vincent Black Shadow for it.

Does anyone know the make and model of the car with the busted windshield pictured next to the Fiero is?

You have to at least feel for the European odd-ball car hoarder. It's a different affliction than the guy with a yard full of old chevvies IMO.

Cool stuff.

Never seen nuthin' like it, and I had the same reaction on that coupe. I fwdd the link to a friend who's good with oddball Euro cars (owns a couple Tatra's and a Panhard like the blue one). If he knows, I'll post his response. He's also a big microcar and motorcycle collector, wouldn't surprise me if he travels to this auction.

Coupe ID

That windowless coupe shell is a Deutsch-Bonnet. Very low production, if you can even call it a production car. Wiki says each car was produced individually, no two the same. Usually employed Panhard engine of some sort.
