Fiat Type 52B

This was one of the entrants in the Manchester to Blackpool Veteran and Vintage Car Run in May 1987, photographed before the start of the run on the Exchange Station car park in Manchester.
It's a 1912 Fiat Type 52B, and the programme of the event said this about it:

15   1912 Fiat Type 52B
       Reg: LU 4369  4 Cylinder  15 hp
       (Vic Lupton, Colne, Lancs)
This blue five-seater was an advanced model
in its day, boasting a four-speed gearbox and
shaft drive.

You can see that some of the participants liked to get into the mood by taking part in period dress.
