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.

Last Week's Car

So it seems that last week’s Mystery Car went unsolved. Either that or the comments system ate the correct response. Whatever, I’m sure that some of you would like to take another swing at that one, so here it is on all its – albeit blurred – glory. I can hear the forehead slapping and choruses shouting Of Course! from here.

Today is Friday the 13th, which in western parlance portends bad luck. I’m sure you don’t believe any of that – as you sit there under a ladder, stroking a black cat and surrounded by broken mirrors. If you can spare the time, how about giving this week’s Mystery Car a go? If you do, all I can say is… good luck!

Mystery Car – Bonus Winter Edition

The city of Boston and surrounding areas are experiencing a very tough winter. It’s been cold, somewhere between -2F and 25F (-19C – -4C), brutally windy, and we have had record snow falls. Snow plowing and snow removal from the city has been slow and painful, by far the worst in the ten years that I’ve lived here. Streets and major roadways are 20% to 30% narrower, sidewalks are mess, and street parking is impossible. Interestingly, Boylston Street was completely plowed and all snow was removed from it prior to the Patriots Super Bowl victory parade, but streets around Mass General Hospital, the biggest hospital in the state, were gridlocked for days due to snow.

I took a quick drive around Beacon Hill last night and snapped a few pictures with my trusty potato. Under the pile of snow pictured above is a vehicle of some kind. Rules of this game are simple, identify it; year, make, and model. I’ll be lenient and let you off the hook with regards to the engine specs. Hit the jump for a few more snowy pics.

February is the shortest month of the year, but that doesn’t mean a shortage of Mystery Cars! Figure out today’s correctly and you’ll be starting off the month right. Speaking of right, in order for you to prove to be so, you’ll need the full make and model in your answer. Good luck!

Are you getting ready for Superbowl Sunday? No? You’re not into the big game? Well, how about Figure It Out Friday, and a more intimate contest we like to call the Mystery Car? There’s fewer commercials too, but you’ll have to bring your own cheerleaders. Make and model of the above please.

It was on this date in 1983 that The A Team premiered, bringing into the lives of TV viewers four Vietnam vets, framed for a crime they didn’t commit, and who while on the run from the military police still had time to aid other innocent victims facing similar fates.

The fate of today’s Mystery Car solution remains in your hands, and while you probably don’t have MPs on your tail, you might want to snap it up before someone else offers the solution. Don’t be too quick however, as we want the full make and model – I’ve given up on those other bits.

Tomorrow is the 62 anniversary of the Corvette’s public unveiling as part of General Motors’ Motorama Show, which was held at New York’s Waldorf-Astoria hotel. Attendees of the event could no doubt quench their appetites with a Waldorf salad after they had quenched their thirst for cool fifties show cars.

We don’t have to wait a day to see a show, as we have the Mystery Car happening right now. As always, please provide the full make, model, year-range, and likely engine in your answer. And then maybe go make yourself a nice salad.

Well, it seems that no one got last week’s Mystery Car. Because I think that everyone should be a winner, I’m offering up a different shot of the elusive candidate that should set light bulbs going off over heads around the globe. Yep, that’s what it was. I was shocked too.
