So far, nobody has posted the correct answer to last week’s Mystery Car, and because it’s the season of giving, I thought I’d give you yet another chance, and a bigger visual hint. I’m pretty sure from the image above that you’ll be able to ID the car. You can also answer the question: does the reflection in the bumper makes me look fat?

mystery_car_19_12_14We are just two days away from the Winter Solstice, which is of course the shortest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere. That means time’s running out to solve this week’s Mystery Car by natural light. You might need to be pretty bright to figure out the identity of the above vehicle from its cleverly masked picture. Since you’re so bright, you’ll remember to include the makemodelyear-range, and likely engine in your answer. Oh, and for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, take your time!

Are you full of holiday cheer yet? I kicked started my seasonal mindset last week by watching the Charlie Brown Christmas special, and I can say that I’m already over all the holiday music in the grocery store. That didn’t take long! If you too would like a respite from the holiday onslaught – which seems to have been going steady since late July – then pull up a chair and have a try at this week’s Mystery Car. All you need to do is identify the make, model, likely engine, and year range and you’re golden. And there’s no damn little drummer boy to bug you either.

On this day in 1951 the first push button automated parking garage – the Park-O-Mat – opened in Washington DC. Run by a single attendant it could return a customer’s car from any slot in less than a minute. I’m guessing that it will take you even less time to figure out the identity of today’s Mystery Car, which I found parked at what will remain an undisclosed location. As you do submit your guess as to its ID, please remember to include the full make and model, likely engine, and year-range to gain full credit. Only then can you fully enjoy your Win-O-Mat.

Today is known as Black Friday, the traditional day-after Thanksgiving shopping frenzy that is the unofficial start of the Holiday shopping season. That’s of course for everybody who is not otherwise occupied by football or tryptophan-induced food comas.

I’m assuming that, if you’re reading this right now, then you’re not shopping until you’re dropping. Good for you. This is far more fun and at least as rewarding. All you need to do is identify the above ride, including its make, model, year-range, and likely engine. Then let the unbridling consumerism begin!

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.
