Mystery Car

Robert Emslie November 9, 2012 Mystery Car

A funny thing happened last week- the Mystery Car remained a mystery even to me. Four-door Ford aficionado, LTDSCott nailed the answer right off the vampire bat, but as I had erroneously committed to memory the answer being an earlier model, I denied him immediate satisfaction. Oh well, it all got sorted out in the end, and everyone went away with some nice parting gifts.

That won’t happen this week because I’ve written the answer down – right here on this old candy wrapper leftover from Halloween. It’s totally legible too, despite the smudges of caramel. Dang, what are those, ants? Anyway, professionalism has returned, and we won’t have another escapade like last week again.

And just so we’re all comme il faut, the rules once again are to name the makemodel, likely engine,  and probable model year.  And this week, I promise that I’ll remember the answer – damn, where’d that candy wrapper go?

    E-type lightweight, as in the Jagar factory racers. Rare cats.

    Well done folks. I thought I could fool you by trying to disguise the boot as the bonnet, but I was wrong. This is one of 12 factory racers originally built. There are others out there that are homages so when buying one, be sure to check it's authenticity!

    Did anyone guess the right answer to the September 28 Mystery Car? The red louvers.
