Time to put on your thinking caps and see if you can tell from this photo, the make and model of car. For extra points and giggles- what engine does it have? You’ve got quite a bit to go on- you can tell that it’s red – in fact shockingly so. Also, it has windows and some sort of tires. Heck, you’re half-way there!
The answer will be revealed in a later post. Or maybe in the comments below.  No looking at your neighbor’s paper now!


  1. You got the car, I got the motor. If I remember this is 98 hp Ford 4 banger from a Sierra not sure about the displacement.. Man I hope I’m right about that.

    OK, I need to go find more information about this car!

  4. Nummer_Sechs, you are quick.
    The engine is a twin-Webered Cortina 1500 engine with 105 hp or optional 135 hp.
