Happy Lincoln’s birthday everyone! Also props to Charles Darwin who was born on the same day as our sixteenth President. We’re noting the day with a very special Mystery Car contest: the Lincoln-Darwin Mystery Car! One thing I can tell you is that it’s not a Lincoln… or a Darwin.

Make and model of what it IS if you please.

Last Tuesday was Groundhog Day, and based on Punxsutawney Phil’s prognostication, we’re in for an early spring. That’s all well and good, but it’s still cold out pretty much everywhere. At least we have the weekly Mystery Car to warm the cockles of our hearts. Make and model on this one if you please.

Well, so far my attempts to stymie you with inscrutable Mystery Car contenders has not panned out as I had expected. Now I think it’s time to bring out the big guns, and by guns I mean ambiguous grey cars. Make and model of this one, if you please.

I told you last week that I was stepping up the difficulty of the weekly Mystery Car and I hope I’m living up to my promise. My wife will probably have other opinions about my promise keeping, but hey I’ve got better things to do than take out the trash! Thats right, things like asking you to provide the make and model with your guess. That’s not too much to ask, is it?

As a warm up exercise for Mr Emslie’s main event on Friday, let’s go with an early Mystery Car Bonus edition today.

Difficulty wise, well, you either know it or you don’t. If anybody participates, I’ll throw the answer up right here tomorrow lunchtime.

Clues? There’s only one. What day is it?

Look, I know I’m going to have to step up my Mystery Car game as far too many of them have been correctly guessed way too early, spoiling the game for others and causing me to utter an audible “curses!”

That’s why I’ve gone and created today’s diabolically difficult Mystery Car, which, on a scale of 1 to 10 I would put at about a 13. We all know how unlucky 13 is, so watch out! I still think it is solvable, and so when you do, please remember to include the make and model. Good luck!

For our first Mystery Car of the new year I knew I had to pick something that was red. For some reason, it seems that the vast majority of our candidates are that salacious hue. That doesn’t give anything away, and neither does the information that I took this picture because I was a bit horrified by the panel gap this car exhibits at certain specific angles.

That’s all you get, and in return we’re hoping you will be able to identify both the make and model by just the above picture. Good luck!

Today is the anniversary of the death of Antonio Stradivari, the maker of musical instruments known by his latinized name Stradivarius. I think we should all have Latinized names, don’t you?

While you’re mulling over what yours would be, take a moment to try and solve this week’s Mystery Car. Makivarius and Modelivarius if you please.

Holy moses but the days are certainly short. It seems like it’s dark when I get up, dark when I head back to home and hearth and for all I know the sun’s only working part time in between. Well, one bright spot in this otherwise dark time is the weekly Mystery Car contest. You know the drill- take a look at the image above, and when the light goes on, let us know what it is.

It was on this date in 1971 that the Casino Barrière de Montreux on the shore of Lake Geneva was set ablaze during a Frank Zappa concert by a fan wielding a flare gun. You can hear a first-hand account of the incident in the Deep Purple song, Smoke on the Water.

Hopefully nothing similar will befall us today as we try and solve this week’s Mystery Car contest. As always, make and model for the win, but don’t dally, after all Swiss time is running out.
