Mystery Car


Tomorrow is Star Wars day, and in light of that auspicious occasion this week’s Mystery Car is . . . completely unrelated to that venerated film. However, it’ll still give you something to do this morning when you’re done practicing your May the fourth be with you greeting.

As you may recall, the rules are simple ones: make, model, year-range, and likely engine are required for full credit and the chance to escape the Death Star. And if you solve this quickly enough we’ll next set you on discovering the location of the hidden rebel base.

    Everything in there made me think Vector M12 right away- color, sweeping lower windshield, short wheel well to hood distance, but when I looked for a picture they don't have the small recess right near the windshield.

      Holy crap I actually got one. Apparently some had it, some didn't.

      Let's see, it's pretty much a Lamborghini Diablo, engine is a twin turbo Lamborghini 5.7 V12, made between 95 and 99 though I have no clue which of the small run this car is.
      Oh, and build location (rebel base?) was Green Cove Springs, Florida.

        Alright, dammit, you're sneaky. This is actually the Vector WX3R, a predecessor and almost identical car to the M12. 6.0 L V8, made in 1992. That dimple not on the M12 is the giveaway in the picture.
        Here's another picture, just because:

    I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

    What happened to the Vector guy? Didn't he end up going to prison? Tax problems?

      Okay, talk about a faulty memory. Nope. He had some civil legal issues, where he (Gerald Wigert) was a plaintiff.

        Yes, he's actually standing behind the car in the above Mystery Car picture.
