    Thank you dfelt! I knew that shape looked familer I just could not put my finger on the manufacturer name.

     

    #1 Looks like an off-road varient similar to a Fiat X1/9

    3.) Ocnblu was coy, and §§ was specific, so you two can share the trophy. '63 Corvette reimaged by Pinninfarina & called the Corvette Rodine.

     

    The rest of you keep digging. :)

    I agree with knightfan, this is perhaps the most difficult one.

     

    My try -

     

    1) Autobianchi A112

     

    2) Schlörwagen or the pillbug

     

    4) 1961 Seagrave

    ^ Aaaaaaaaaaaannd this week's Trivia Tuesday is all wrapped up!

    Z-06, you are correct on your 3 answers. A Bologna sandwich is on the way to you via Fed Ex Ground.

    #2 is the 1939 prototype design by German engineer Karl Schlor. It was wind tunnel-tested at .18 cd. It's whereabouts / fate is unknown. 

     

    The Seagrave is a very interesting project IMO, coming from the fire truck manufacturer Seagrave. I've often wondered if there would be any business case advantages for a HD manufacturer to build a (in this case: very) light duty auto.

    See you next Tuesday!

    Thanks Sir. That #1 and 4 had really had me scratching every part of my body to find answers. #2 I had seen it in an article that talked about wind tunnel testing, I just didn't know the name.

     

    But that was a long Sherlock-esque search.


    At least I got the country for #2 right. I'm quite pleased with myself really :D

     

    You should be proud.

    Ha number 2 looks familiar some how. Im not sure how but I feel like I've seen many pictures of it in the past. I believe it is German.

    As for number 4 it looks like a seagrave to be honest.

    • Wishing all our members a safe and happy Fourth of July.  It's but a few hours away.
    • But Tesla is up 53%, so they obviously aren't being crushed by supply chain since they are mostly vertically integrated. Whoever can crack the supply chain problem first (or maybe 2nd and 3rd too) and get EV production booming is going to win, the ones that don't will lose, probably get consolidated into another car company as very few actually go out of business.  And that might be GM, it is like a big reset button right now.  There is an estimated 3-4 million units of pent up demand right now, whoever stocks their dealer lots first could get massive market share.  There is very large Chevy dealer near me, they have 3 new vehicles in stock.  The Mercedes dealer across the street has 81.  GM or any other car company can't have dealers with 3 cars in stock, they should have over 100, if they had 300 cars in stock they'd probably sell them in a month given how much demand is out there.  Whoever gets the inventory first wins, and I'd say EV inventory as well, because if you order a Tesla is still about a 6 month wait on average, some models are a 1 year wait, if the rivals had cars in stock you could get today, they could beat Tesla.
    • It seems like there is a shark attack is making the news on a daily basis ... in Monterey Bay, CA, on Florida's Gulf Side, on Long Island (a lifeguard), and faraway places like South Africa and Sharm-El Sheik, Egypt.  This is horrible. In oceans and seas where the surf was minimal, I used to swim out to where I couldn't even touch or see the bottom.  I haven't done that in 1 or 2 decades.  The teenage girl in the Florida attack at Keaton Beach was in 5 feet of water.   Don't do it.  Find another place to swim.  Encourage your loved ones and friends to stay very close to the shoreline.  Just work on your tan or something.
