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.

It was on this date in 2007 that Steve Jobs introduced the first-ever iPhone, a device that would go on to radically change how we spend time in-line at the grocery store. You might be viewing this Mystery Car contest on an iPhone, or one of its competitors, and if you are, good luck! You’ll still need to identify the above car or truck, including its make, model, year-range, and likely engine, but you’ll need do so using one of those tiny keyboards.

Today is Boxing Day, a tradition that began in Great Britain, and which is celebrated in many English-speaking countries around the world with the exception of the United States. It’s also called the Day of Goodwill in South Africa, and Wren’s Day in the Republic of Ireland. The tradition is to give gifts to servants and tradespeople on the day after Christmas, as they had to work on Christmas Day.

It’s a nice observance of gratitude for sacrifice and I’m equally grateful for you all coming back here week after week and playing our Mystery Car game, as it’s my gift to you. If you think you know the identity of the above vehicle, let us know in the comments below, and try and provide as much description as you can.

So far, nobody has posted the correct answer to last week’s Mystery Car, and because it’s the season of giving, I thought I’d give you yet another chance, and a bigger visual hint. I’m pretty sure from the image above that you’ll be able to ID the car. You can also answer the question: does the reflection in the bumper makes me look fat?

mystery_car_19_12_14We are just two days away from the Winter Solstice, which is of course the shortest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere. That means time’s running out to solve this week’s Mystery Car by natural light. You might need to be pretty bright to figure out the identity of the above vehicle from its cleverly masked picture. Since you’re so bright, you’ll remember to include the makemodelyear-range, and likely engine in your answer. Oh, and for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, take your time!

Are you full of holiday cheer yet? I kicked started my seasonal mindset last week by watching the Charlie Brown Christmas special, and I can say that I’m already over all the holiday music in the grocery store. That didn’t take long! If you too would like a respite from the holiday onslaught – which seems to have been going steady since late July – then pull up a chair and have a try at this week’s Mystery Car. All you need to do is identify the make, model, likely engine, and year range and you’re golden. And there’s no damn little drummer boy to bug you either.

On this day in 1951 the first push button automated parking garage – the Park-O-Mat – opened in Washington DC. Run by a single attendant it could return a customer’s car from any slot in less than a minute. I’m guessing that it will take you even less time to figure out the identity of today’s Mystery Car, which I found parked at what will remain an undisclosed location. As you do submit your guess as to its ID, please remember to include the full make and model, likely engine, and year-range to gain full credit. Only then can you fully enjoy your Win-O-Mat.
