So, are you feeling the fall in the air? Perhaps you’re enjoying the seasonal colors as they wash from green to golds and browns. If you happen to live where fall is a little less colorful then perhaps you will appreciate the hue of this week’s Mystery Car as it’s fall fantastic.

While you’re enjoying the seasonal colors, you can also take the opportunity to identify the make, model, likely engine and year-range of our fall classic.

On this day in 1851 Moby Dick was first published. Melville’s story about obsession and albinism went on to become a classic, and is read in high schools nation wide even to this day. Speaking of read, or red, that’s the color of today’s Mystery Car. You could read a lot into its identity from the picture above, but if you want to capture the win, you’ll need to write the make, model, year-range, and likely engine under this red vehicle’s hood. Oh and call me, will ya’ Ishmael?

Forty-nine years ago tomorrow, Art Arfons set a newline speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The Ohio drag racer drove his jet-powered Green Monster on a two-run average of 576.553 miles per hour. You don’t have to be as fast as that today, but alacrity does count in getting your Mystery Car answer in before everyone else. Just don’t be so quick so that you forget to include the make, model, year-range, and likely engine in your answer.

Once again, happy Hoon-a-ween, ghouls and boys. We’re starting All-Hallows Eve off early with a cloaked car for your enjoyment. The trick to this treat is to discern the make, model, likely engine and year-range of the above apparition.  That’s not too scary, is it?

On this date in 1911 Orville Wright rode the brothers’ glider over North Carolina’s Kill Devil Hills for an amazing 9 minutes and 45 seconds. This was a record flight, and one that would stand for fully 10 years.

You’ll be flying high when you solve today’s Mystery Car. Of course to get into the record books you’ll need to identify the make, model, likely engine and year-range too. We won’t even mind if you ask your brother to help.

Happy Friday, everyone. Any big plans for the weekend? No, well then that will give you plenty of time to work out this week’s Mystery Car. Of course, we don’t like for this to be considered work, after all, it should be a nice respite from the daily grind to wind up your work week.

Whether it’s work or play, there’s still some rules by which we’d like you to abide. Please give us the make, model, likely engine, and year-range for full credit and the admiration of your peers. Got that? Okay then, get to work, er… play.

Have you seen this joke about the new Spice Girl? It seems that every year pumpkin pie invades more of our lives, whether it be flavoring our chai lattes, or scented candles and toilet tank sanitizer hockey pucks in our homes.

We’ll have none of that here, and I’d like to assure you that the weekly Mystery Car will continue to be 100% pumpkin spice free. It won’t be rule-free however as we still do require the make, model, likely engine, and year-range for the win. Now, did you want that regular, or decaf?

October is here and we are now officially into Fall, let the hot toddies begin! It was in this month in 1908 (October 1st to be exact) that the first Model T rolled out of Ford’s Piquette Avenue plant in Detroit. That would be the first of more than 15 million such examples that Ford would build over the next 19 years establishing the T as one of history’s most ubiquitous and famous automobiles.

The weekly Mystery Car has no such lofty goals, only to offer you all a bit of simple diversion. We do ask that when you offer your guess of the above vehicle’s identity that you give the make, model, year-range, and likely engine, just because. Get those all right and we can add this one to the history books.

On this date in 1928 the Galvin Manufacturing Company began operations, having incorporated just the day before. It would be two years before their most influential product would be released, the Motorola car radio, which was the first mass-produced radio for automotive use.

We’re glad that you’ve tuned in today for the weekly Mystery Car contest. We would like to ask not only that you provide the make, model, year-range, and likely engine for today’s candidate, but also that you… don’t touch that dial!

Once again the week is done, and I’ll bet you are ready for some fun and frivolity. We save the Mystery Car contest for the end of the work week because it (hopefully) takes some effort, and it being Friday, you’ve probably already checked out from work for the week.

Because of that, you should check out the picture above and let us know if you can correctly identify what car, truck, or hovercraft that is. If you’re not too checked out, remember to include the makemodel, likely engine, and year-range in your answer.
