Today we say goodbye to another July and hello to yet another Mystery Car contest, our Friday time waster that let’s you flex your car-identifying mental muscle. Regardless of the month, you can count on it to give you something to do other than work on the eve of your weekend. Also as always, make and model if you please.

It’s nearing the end of July which I assume means we’re getting close to the dog days of summer. I sure hope so because I really like dogs. I guess a lot of people do too as there sure are a lot of dog references when it comes to the weather. In addition to being used to describe the hot doldrums of summer there’s three-dog night to describe the cold, and of course raining cats and dogs to let people know just how wet they might get.

I don’t know what all that has to do with this week’s Mystery Car, other than that I hope you doggedly attempt to solve it. When you do, be sure to provide both the make and model. Good boy.

Welcome to this week’s Mystery Car, that finally-a-Friday frivolity that either vexes or rewards your vast knowledge of vehicular visual detail. What is that reward? Why, the admiration of your peers, that’s what. Of course that has zero monetary value, is non-transferable, and is void in Florida and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Other than that, good luck!

On this date in 1925 the Scopes “Monkey Trial” first entered into session. That Tennessee court battle put the teaching of evolution on trial and turned the courthouse exterior into a circus with formally attired chimpanzees on display and vendors hawking everything from hot dogs to bibles. The trial became one of history’s most famous and ended up in defeat for both the defendant Scopes and prosecuting attorney William Jennings Bryan who was made the object of ridicule by defending attorney Clarence Darrow. Bryan would die in his sleep less than a week later.

We’re not monkeying around today, but you’ll still face a trial by obfuscation as you try and identify the above vehicle by one closely-cropped image. How long will the jury by out? It’s hard to say, but when you do reach your verdict, please be sure to include both make and model.

About That Mystery Car From Last Month

question marks

It has been brought to my attention that the Mystery Car from June 19th was never solved, and neither have I been forthcoming with the answer. Click that link for a refresher. I’d like to take this opportunity to rectify the latter oversight by giving you the facepalm-worthy answer right after the jump. I’m saving it for there just in case any of you haven’t really given up and don’t want the answer to be spoiled. If you have given up, by all means, click on through. … Continue Reading

Tomorrow is Independence Day here in the U.S. of A. and that means flags and fireworks and hopefully beer and BBQ. Before we get to all the rockets red glare, it’s your duty – patriotic or otherwise – to try and solve this week’s Mystery Car. Make and model if you please.

About Last Week’s Mystery Car

question marks

Seeing as nobody correctly identified last Friday’s Mystery Car by now, I thought it only fair to give you the answer. Of course I also thought it only fair not to spoil it for those still refusing to give up the ghost. That’s why I’m hiding the answer after the jump. Click through to be amazed and thrilled at the answer, or click the link above to be taken back to the obscured version and keep trying.

Do you know when the War of 1812 took place? I know, it was a trick question- it was in fact, on today’s date. The year however escapes me. There’s no escaping the fact that on the same date this year, a Mystery Car contest takes place.

That’s a lot more fun than a war, and the casualties should be far fewer. All we ask is that you give the make and model and then we’ll raise the white flag. Okay then, once more into the breech!

Happy Friday, everybody! It was on this date in 1923 that the very first Checker Cab rolled off the assembly line in Kalamazoo Michigan. Checker is still to this day America’s most iconic cab, even though the last one left the factory decades ago, in fact all the way back in 1982.

You know what is still around? That’s right, the weekly Mystery Car contest. It’s not quite the icon that Checker once was, but there’s plenty of time for that. For now, you need to come up with the make and model of the above vehicle. Better be quick about it, the meter’s running.

On this date in 1940 Ford agreed to build Rolls Royces. Actually, Edsel Ford agreed to a request by the Office of Production Management (OPM) for Ford to produce 9,000 Rolls Royce Merlin engines, intended for American and British wartime aircraft.

We’ll make no such monumental request of you, just that you try and solve this week’s Mystery Car. Remember to include the make and model if you do!
