Mr Rogers’ Neighborhood debuted on this date in 1967. I don’t know about you, but I consider Fred Rogers as the epitome of how a human should act, and comport themselves.

I’m sure that if you were perhaps flummoxed by today’s Mystery Car, Mr Rogers would have consoling words that would make everything all right. If you in fact know the answer to this week’s contest – make and model, the whole ball of wax – then he’d let your know how proud he was of you, and how everyone else should be proud of just trying.

On this date in 1942 gasoline rationing was mandated in 17 Eastern states as part of the expanding war effort. By year’s end, President Roosevelt would mandate rationing for the entire nation. We’re not rationing the fun, and in fact it’s free for the taking with this week’s Mystery Car contest. Fill up on it and guess the identity of the above car or truck. Make and model if you please.

I know you’re already working on this week’s Mystery Car, but there’s still the matter of last week’s as nobody was able to offer a correct guess from the wee image snippet provided. At least if anyone did, they kept it to themselves.

Here’s a little more of the car – the image was of the backlight-boot juncture – so now you know. And now you are also thinking about Mustangs, because that just what this generation of Aston Martins does.

No one managed to correctly identify last week’s contender and while I’m loathe to give you the answer straight up, I am going to give you another shot of the car, one that I think will make its identity immediately recognizable.

You all offered some great – and remarkably close – guesses, but as you can see above, no one quite got it spot on. Coming up very shortly, another Mystery Car!

On this date in 1948, the Land Rover Series 1 debuted at the Amsterdam Motor Show. Maurice Wilkes, then head designer at Rover had employed a Military-spec Jeep on his farm, which surprisingly didn’t prove durable enough! That led him to advocate within Rover the building of what would become the iconic British alternative. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black!

Today’s Mystery Car may or may not be some sort of Rover, that will be up to you to discern. Whatever it is, make sure to provide the make and model when you post your guess. Best of luck!

On this date in 1908 Mr & Mrs Jacob Murdock set off to become the first couple to travel across the United States by car. They left Los Angeles in their Packard, arriving in New York City 32 days, 5 hours and 25 minutes later. That may be a record, but it’s also a chunk of time and we don’t have that sort of luxury. Instead, you’re going to want to solve this week’s Mystery Car contest before someone else does. I mean, what else have you got to do? When you give your answer, please remember to include both make and model. Good luck!
