Mystery Car


The Mystery Car post has become a Friday tradition, like slacking off at work and T.G.I.Friday’s hook ups. Today, being Friday, we’re keeping the tradition alive with a car that’s so futuristic it just has to be old, and that’s all i’m saying about it. You all are so good at these – hell you even nailed last week’s freaky Marcos Mantis! Because of that, I fully expect this one to be name dropped before the quarter hour. I’m so confident that I’m not even going to do a ‘Mystery Car Revealed’ post later this afternoon. Of course that’ll just give me more time at T.G.I.Friday’s. . .

    No idea, but I'm going to guess some kind of Mazda.

      It's not the RX500, which has clearly frightened the crap out of this couple:

    With this being April 1st, I'm a bit leery.

    Well, it's not a Porsche Tapiro. That would've been too easy.
    Whatever it is, I'm thinking early '70s and styled by the Italians. Unless, that is, we're being trolled.

    I like the squareness. Square light, square wraparound bumper. It's killing me that I can't find it.

      I recognize the recessed hood too, but can't place it.

    Hmmm, harder than I thought it would be. I was expecting this one to 'slide' through much more quickly.

      Based on this hint, I figured it was one of the Ford Probe concept cars.

    So, you guys know that Wikipedia has a list of cars with pop up headlights, right?

      And that from a guy grown up in a country with only VW, Ford, GM and Fiat available on the market (ok there were some in barn made obscure car manufacturers too)

        Funny thing, I thought it was a Miura (tropical kit car, not supercar prone to self combustion)

          Hmmm….thats quite nice looking in 1980's Japanese sporty car kind of way. Not kit car-ish at all, ugly mirrors excl. And it sits too high but this, I understand, is something many cars in Latin America do.
          After driving 3000 km in central Mexico where every micro village on the main road had at least 5 Topes (speed bumps) higher than clearance of our rented Chrysler Cirrus' exhaust, I understand the need for higher cars.

            I've traveled thousands of miles in Mexico by bicycle, and it was only recently that I learned that a buddy of many trips really thought "topes" meant "Slow Down, Taco Cart Ahead".

            This one is a little jacked up, this is a better representation:

            (Miuras changed a lot that's why this is different)
            But what you said stands. Our roads are awful and we have no regulation for speed bumps (is there any?) so while some of them are insignificant a few look like knocked down telephone poles.

            I'll bet some of them are just a stray anaconda stretched across the road.

            Probably resting after eating a VW Gol or a Brasilia for lunch.
