Mystery Car


Here we are at the outset of February. That is the calendar’s shortest month, meaning you better get jumping on solving today’s Mystery Car contest.

You know the rules – you need to come u with the make, model, year-range and likely engine to win. You all are pretty good at these so I’m sure you’ll have the answer in. . .  short order.

    1. Good grief… I just got here…
      Not saying I would have gotten it that quickly… but come on!

      1. "I guess our Mystery Car…"
        ( •_•)>⌐■-■
        "…was not so mysterious after all"

  1. Spyker C8 Aileron or Aileron Spyder. Audi 4.2L V8 parts code prefix: 077, identification code: ANK
    C8 has been made since 2000, Aileron version since 2010.
    I guess they're still in production?

      1. 65F and sunny here today. (18.3C for those from Canadia)
        Happy Friday to you from the other "CA"!

        1. I think it was -3*F outside here when I started Dale. I love the way he starts in the cold, wrrrr wrrrrr wrrrrrr wrrrrrr wrrrr ROOOAOOAORARROARRAR! ttrrtrtrstertrrrt tst tsspsts tspstptptsttstaatatatpapapapapa abrbrbrbbrr rttt tt t tt t t . t . .
          My wife's minivan had trouble firing-up and it was parked in the garage over night, the big baby.

          1. But what if you buy it for her as a Valentine's Day gift? Put a big red bow around it, and it'll be so romantic she can't say no.
            Then, after a few weeks, make sure that the cars are parked in the "right" order in your driveway that you are "forced" to take the NSX instead of your own car every morning…

  2. Gotta admit, this one wasn't hard. I immediately identified it as the C8, and apparently so did everybody else. Think you went with too common a vehicle on this one, everybody's seen a C8 (on here at least).

    1. Chewie! Get your head back inside the Millennium Falcon before we make the jump to light speed next time!

      1. I was thinking about that recently! I have a hunch it's because they get all the outside smells that way in car and just my putrid breath otherwise. This dog can't seem to see, but look how his nose and mouth are straight-out into the wind. I think that is what is going on.
        Also I dreamed of an electric (heated) butter knife two nights back, and I still argue with my kids it's genius. They still disagree. So take my thoughts with a grain of salt. Dogs are awesome indeed, no arguing that.

        1. That is indeed brilliant… I've long had an idea for an ice cream scoop with a heated wire running around the edge to slice through ice cream like… well like butter lol.
