Mystery Car

Well my fellow Hoons, it seems every time this olelongrooffan does a Mystery Car, it is usually identified by about the time I hit the “publish” button. This has happened so much that I thought I would try it once more just to see if those occurrences were aberrations or are my offerings just to easy?
thanks to those involved in the process of getting this up…you know who you are.

About LongRoofian

No biography of the LongRoofian would be complete without [edited for length and adherence to subject matter] and your continued enjoyment of these ramblings is certainly welcome.


      1. The position of the door handle (too low) and the presence of a heavy B-pillar look wrong.

      2. and he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you pesky commentors! Bravo tonyola!

    1. booooo!
      obvious use of image locating software
      this game needs a freshen up, unique images taken by users, it could rock if it took more than 10 min to solve.

      1. Take your sorry lame-ass accusations elsewhere, dork. I've known about this car long before image-searching existed. I first saw it in a 1966 Motor Trend magazine.

          1. I don't know, but supposedly only ten were made in total. It could also be a flipped negative on the older picture.

          2. It just looks to me like the wipers are properly parked in your photo but were stopped while at the other extreme of their arcs in the B&W photo– admittedly not a typical sweep pattern these days.

        1. Tosh.0 style punchline fest…
          "Nice BMW"
          "I drive one of those"
          "It's a real hot rod"
          "I've never ridden one of those, but my wife has"
          "Used to have one. It was terribly unreliable – it would only go in spurts"
          "I got this one for the handling"

      2. tristan…I did a Mystery Car post a while back with a Puma as the subject car. Tonyola got it in about 20 minutes. He is just that damn good. Take a look at his comments around this site and you will soon realize this guy knows his shit.

        1. I agree tonyola is just that good, but if you're referring to the Puma GT back in February, it was BЯдΖǐL-ЯЄРΘЯΤЄЯ who got that one. Um, unless they're the same person. Heck, for all I know, you're all the same person. Except me. I'm pretty sure I'm not the same person.

          1. Nope, that wasn't me who got the Puma. However, I can claim at least part credit for the Panther Solo.

        1. Apparently every one they ever made is green and licensed in Washington state. What are the odds?

        2. Hmm. Notice how the wiper appears to be backwards relative to the driving position.

          1. Aw, did you have to home in on one of its few conventional features? The wiper is directly driven by a Marchal electric motor; the only rubber band is in the transmission. Even the steering uses a chain instead.

      1. A bit, yeah. Might take a few more bottles of Neustadt 10w30 to be sure, but I can see the faint resemblance.

  1. Nope, didn't know that. Please don't give me too much credit. There's a lot I don't know. Besides, I could have used image-search software to solve this puzzle. At least that's what I've been accused of.

      1. Yea, just upgraded my old Mac Mini Core Solo with 2GB of RAM and a 2 MHz Core II Duo processor. So now, instead of being 7 years out of date, it's only 5 years out of date. That warrants an OS upgrade too, don'cha think?

        1. But if I go past 10.4.11 on a G5 I'll lose Classic, which I last opened, um, ah, well… I suppose I did replay "3 in Three" a couple of years ago….
