The world’s greatest detectives – Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Poe’s Dupin – all were able to solve complex crimes based on the merest shred of evidence. For today’s Mystery Car challenge, I am providing you with what you might consider to be the merest shred of a car – that being a single instructive label located (probably) somewhere on the car’s person.
The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind, as the label’s direction is in regards to changing an air passage dependent on the season. That will either cause the little 40-watt over your head to go on, or will cause great consternation, depending on how great a detective you are.
Like stereotyped machinations of criminals, great sleuths often return to the scene of the crime to lay out their convoluted exposés of how the said crime went down. You may do so as well, offering up your solution to today’s Mystery Car right here in the comments – just remember to mind the police tape. Also remember to solve the mystery in its entirety including make, model, year-range, and the likely engine powering the thing. The game is afoot!
