The lower one in circle is a Gilbern Genie, which presumably the author didn't recognise, as it's not mentioned in the story, despite being highlighted.

Might be worth a bit more digging first - the article appears to have the following date:
Published: 18:43, 11 October 2012 | Updated: 11:51, 12 October 2012
.

Given that one of the cars mentioned in the first few lines is "Humber Sceptre" I suspect your web search for petrol caps might have trawled it up from the abyss?

Wow. That's quite a diverse collection. The two Lancias look to be in quite good nick considering their propensity for disintegrating.
