Mystery Car

Our mystery cars have been identified quite quickly lately, even when we show you just a sliver of sheetmetal. So this week, we’re hobbling those of you who have eidetic recall of the lines and curves of every car body. Rather than shrinking your view of the body even further, we’re removing the body all together.
So, now you wrench-spinners, gearheads and nut-monkeys who spend most of your time under vehicles have your shot. Which is not to say this particular vehicle is a ‘gimmie.’
Commence head-scratching and beard-stroking now.

    SsangYong Actyon.

      I don't believe it, but after doing some Google-Fo, the wheels look the same, and the exhaust system is in the right location. I think we have a winner.

      Just so you know…all of us at Hooniverse now hate you.
      …but are also amazed.

      Just for the record, that's the last time I use a photo available on the Internet for Mystery Car.

        If you flip the picture horizontally, you'll throw off the image search engines.

          But wouldn't that make it a wee bit tougher for people to guess correctly?
          ("Hmmm…I would've guessed SsangYong Actyon, but the exhaust is on the wrong side…")

        I agree with this. There are too many aids out there. I think between all the editors at Hooniverse, there should be enough photos to chop and post to make things really interesting.
        That, or just post an NSX.

        Just throw a tiny watermark on it and host it on Hooniverse and then the cheaty services will just lead back home.

      Hey, I just ordered that keyboard this morning!

        At first glance I thought that had the Manx triskelion at the bottom center. I was all set to order one until I looked at the larger view.

        Earlier ones had detachable cords. If you could find an example with non-removable keycaps you wouldn't even have to reassemble it after the vicious beating.
        Does yours have the badass trackball?

          I've still got one of the old trackball models, and it was a great keyboard. I say was because it has the old style connectors and I can't find a serial DB9->USB adaptor that will work with the trackball. You can still get the old IBM style keyboards without the trackball that have USB connectors and they're still great, last forever and you can beat the hell out of them.

            I thought I was the only one holding onto one with a trackball. It's just waiting for me to buckle down and figure out how to adapt it all to USB as well.

      It's a motorcycle! It's a keyboard! it's a pedal!
      …No, it's Ssangyongman!

    Those almost look like the 17" wheels on my Dodge Grand Caravan, but they're not. Doesn't really look like the chassis, either…
    That's all I got.

    Drag on a SsangYong Actyon is probably terribad.

    Yup. *Hangs head in shame.* Sorry guys. Won't happen again. 🙁 Let the berating begin.

      I'd be more concerned about you if you could identify that on sight.

      you go stand in that corner until I tell you to come out!

      Ah, who cares. It's already all but forgotten. In fact, just to show there are no hard feelings, we'll let you have a sneak peek at our next Mystery Car…

    Well, I'm happy enough with my guess (Kia Sorento). Same Korean body-on-frame SUV idea, but I knew I was a bit off.

    Pretty sure that's a Lambo, dude.
