April famously arrives like a lion, and bows out as would a lamb. Of course, if this year’s edition is anything to go on, you’d need to plug a polar bear in there someplace, as this year April has been snowy and cold in a lot of places. In an attempt to warm the cockles of your heart, or at least take your mind off the lost toes, we’ve got the weekly Mystery Car.
This week we’re going to the junk yard. Our contender sits in one of Southern California’s many U-Pull-Em yards, and as a hint I will tell you that it is in a row with a ’69 Mustang, a ’50-something Studebaker Commander, ’52 Chevy Sedan, ’68 Cougar, and a ’60 Metropolitan. It’s an eclectic mix of iron to be sure.
As you might recall, the rules are simple – make, model, year-range and likely engine (this one I will tell you is missing its engine) to win. Okay, it’s now time to get on it, before the trail grows cold.
