I used to enjoy listening to the oldie timey radio show called I Love a Mystery because, well… I love a Mystery. That’s why I love Fridays and the work-week ending Mystery Car challenge. This is our last for the month of August, and hopefully it’ll be one that you love. Make and model if you do.

No one has yet solved last week’s Mystery Car challenge, a lamentable but fair situation considering how difficult it proved to be. Since perhaps not everyone is ready to throw in the towel I will save the solution for after the jump. Make it if you concede defeat, or move on if you;re not ready to give up the ghost.  … Continue Reading

On this date in 1979 Soviet dancer Alexander Godunov defected to the U.S.. Godunov was performing with the Bolshoi Ballet when he contacted American authorities and asked for asylum. Upon learning of what he did, the KGB put Godunov’s wife – Lyudmila Vlasova – on a plane bound for Moscow. The plane was halted by U.S. authorities and a diplomatic dialog was begun between then president Jimmy Carter, and Soviet head honcho Leonid Brezhnev. After three days Vlasova was allowed to go home.

Hey, there’s no need to cause an international dust up over this week’s Mystery Car, just the request that you provide both the make and model in your answer. And if you feel the need to attempt a croisé while doing so, well nobody here is going to stop you.

This weekend more than 1500 Hot Rods and Muscle Cars will invade the Spokane County Fairgrounds as part of Goodguys Rod & Custom Association’s Full Throttle Fun. If that’s a bit of a drive for you then I’m sure we can find some auto-related fun that’s closer to home… like maybe this week’s Mystery Car.

Think of that, you don’t even have to leave the house for this fun. Make and model if you please.

My sister’s birthday is in August. If it wasn’t for that, I’d have nothing to do with the month. It’s usually hot, there are no three-day weekends the whole time, and it’s almost always unbearably hot. Did I mention that it was hot?

Yes, August sucks, but perhaps to make it a little more bearable we’ll have the Friday Mystery Car for your entertainment. Please enjoy, and as always provide the make and model with your guess. Oh, and try not to get any sweat on the site, okay?

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.
