Mystery Car


They sometimes say that one is missing the forest for the trees, and that’s often the case when trying to decode the identity of the weekly Mystery Car. Of course that begs the question- should you suddenly realize the answer while in a forest and there is no one around to hear you shout eureka! does it still count? You bet it does.

That is, if you’re correct, and you’ve followed the rules. What are those rules? I thought you’d never ask. For the win you need to come up with the make, model, year-range, and likely engine powering our mystery machine.  Now, ruminate Forest, ruminate.

    I'll start the bidding at Reliant Scimitar. Can I interest anyone in a Lamborghini Athon concept?

    its not the one that is for sale, though, so it is a little less disappointing about my personal finance situation.

      Hey did you see my post on the Last Call thread list night? You should be buying PowerBall tickets:

          I heard on the news last night that three (IIRC) million dollar tickets were sold here in Texas.

    It's a 1997 Flazblan Boodilcator 200YX with the 6.01L 5-cylinder boxer.
    And spoiler delete.

      I had one of those in high school….
      Good times.

      First year for Flazblan's use of the Chrysler Turbo-Encabulator, if I recall correctly.

      Boodilcator? More like Booty Licker, if you ask me. My old Kasabian Super Ti Lux, with a 7 liter, supercharged W3 would suck the windshield outta any Flazblan going. She-eet!

    Some early Saab? Two stroke engine, consequently.

    Is that a hood we are looking at, from the top? I have idea even where north is in this photo.

      Yes, I think so, photo taken at the left front wheel, looking down, car front to the left. Pretty curvy, so I'd assume something 50- or 60-ish. But that's like, you know, my opinion…

    Mentioning forests, seeing tree reflections in the red paint, and the hard body lines are combining to make me believe this vehicle may have been in a recent story on Hooniverse. Call me crazy, my guess: 2001 Jeep Cherokee. with the 4.0

    Forest for the trees, huh? I say we have here a top-down view of the hood of a faux-jeep or maybe even a flavor of actual jeep. But then I see the reflections of a car show and realize this is likely wrong unless the hood I thought I was seeing opens sideways.
