Mystery Car!

Today is Friday, March 16th, and on this date in 1966 the Gemini 8 space capsule achieved the first ever space docking with the un-manned Agena Target Vehicle. That accomplishment was short-lived however, due to a stuck thruster on the Gemini capsule forcing the mission to be aborted. Still, it proved a major milestone for the U.S. Space Program’s race to the Moon.

Your task is a little less daunting, and doesn’t require the wearing of astronaut-grade diapers or even the ingesting of tasty Tang, although that’s not to say that you can’t do either, should it float your boat. What you do need to do determine, from the craftily disguised photo above, the identity of today’s Mystery Car!. What do the sixties space race and orbital docking have to do with this week’s contender? Well, that will be up to you to determine. As always, make, model, year, and engine are required to win. If you’re ready, I’ll give you a count down- Five, four, three, two, one, SOLVE!
