Bought this car on a fair over the w/e, nobody there knew what it is.  It says Foreign so I assume it is a postwar car from Germany or Japan but not sure.

I\'m not positive, I think it\'s a C.A.W. Novelty DeSoto airflow sedan. It appears that there is a makers mark between the front axle and the tabs, but it\'s so far gone you can\'t tell from the pics.

OK thanks. It\'s not the C.A.W. unless the center post on the windscreen is missing. I\'ll keep looking.
