Mystery Car


Today happens to be the birthday of Monty Python’s Eric Idle and so in his honor, for this week’s Mystery Car I would like to present, something completely different. Well, it’s actually not all that different. It is after all some form of wheeled vehicle masked by some inscrutable trickery and served up with nary a hint of its true identity. Okay, so it’s not different at all. 

Also not different are the rules – you guys never follow the rules! They are: make and model, likely engine and year range in the answer to win. That’s all, and it’s not so hard. Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, on to the meaning of life, er, I mean the Mystery Car.

    That looks like a Gurney Bubble to me on a Ford GT40 MkIV with a 427 Ford V8. If not, it gives me an excuse to post this.

    I know what it's not, but what I think it should be:

    But then again, Eric Idle wasn't in that movie, but it's a cool car.

    Something with a lumpy Idle, I bet.

      Sort of looks like they designed the body and then modified the hood until it worked.
