On this date in 1964, the Ford Mustang Debuted at the World’s Fair in Flushing, New York. It also made its first appearance in select Ford dealers across the nation on very the same day. Is the above mystery vehicle a Mustang in honor of the day? I’m not telling, but I will tell you that you need to come up with the make and model for the win, whatever those might be.

Did you know that AMC introduced the Gremlin to the world on April Fools Day? Yep, April 1, 1970 saw the debut of American Motors’ import fighter, no joke!

As always, make and model FTW.

Weekend Edition: Mystery Car Sighting: The Westland Empire Aristocrat Edition

Mystery-CarAug05

So awhiles back in my V.I.S.I.T. post about that Deux Chevaux this olelongrooffan had spotted, I mentioned I was returning from picking up TheKenMan’s generously provided AuctionsAmerica weekend pass for their auctions over the past few days. So on this past Saturday morning after making sure the underside of the lid of my washing machine was clean, (yeah that is a joke only a few of my fellow Hoons and thejeepjunkie will get), this olelongrooffan headed across Alligator Alley for the 93 minute drive to the Fort Lauderdale Convention Center there in the Port of the Everglades for the show that is Auctions America. Now while I was there I saw a whole bunch of cool ass carp, a lot of which I had seen before but it was cool to see it all once again. There was, however, one vehicle I have only seen in a partly obstructed view and that was here in the Hooniverse. Yes, it was one of the esteemed Mr. Esmlie’s Mystery Car posts from way back in 2011 which, surprisingly, this olelongrooffan remembered. Check that post out here and the ultimate identification of that ride by none other than commenter P161911. Yeah, my fellow Hoons, this olelongrooffan was pure assed flabbergasted to have spotted it and even more so to have remembered it. I guess the blue Skyy hasn’t killed all of the brain cells in this double nickeled aged old man.

On this date in 1928 James Packard, co-founder of his eponymous car company and an industry pioneer, passed away. Pour out a 40 at the curd, or perhaps more appropriately, a twin six packs. When you’re done with that, come back and play this week’s Mystery Car contest. It may not have the panache of a Packard, but it’ll keep you from getting any work done for a while at least. Make and Model FTW, please.

The weird thing about March is that, up until the 28th the days and dates match those of February. That means we get yet another Friday the 13th, for all your superstitious bad luck fear enjoyment.

Maybe you’ll enjoy trying to solve today’s Mystery Car more than staying away from black cats and stepping on cracks. If you do so, please provide the make and model. Oh and, good luck.

It is said that March comes in like a lion and exits like a lamb. I don’t know anything about that as I live in Southern California where our climate makes grilling either lamb or lion a year-round affair. One thing I do know is that no matter how dark the weather it’s always a bright idea to try and solve the weekly Mystery Car. If you think you have a clue as to the identity of the heavily cropped car or truck above, let us know – make and model – in the comments below.

One more day and February 2015 will be one for the books. This is the shortest month of the year, and seeing how cold it’s been in many places (although thankfully not here in paradise) I’ll bet a lot of you are glad to see it go. Something that might warm your heart before it does is the weekly Mystery Car contest, and this being Friday, get ready to get warm. As always, please provide the make and model, and also as always, best of luck!

On this date in 1909 Hudson Motor Car Company was founded in Detroit Michigan, with the majority of its initial funding coming from department store owner, Joseph L. Hudson. Hudson today is remembered as one of the great names in automotive history, and to honor the company’s memory, today we have a Mystery Car that is definitely not a Hudson. What is it then? That’s up to you to figure out. Make and model, if you please.
