    #1 gives me the impression of a Fiat based auto.

     

    #2 gives me a french vibe.

     

    #3 looks like the Mako shark car.

    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.

      1.) Most windshields are basically “parallelograms”, IE; though there is often a minor arc to a given side, they still present themselves as ‘rectangular’ to the eye.
      This is the 1954 Kaiser, which shows the feature Kaiser used since 1950; nicknamed the ‘Sweetheart’ windshield. Note the obvious double-arc’d top edge of the glass. For the sake of this question, we’re calling it a ‘non-parallelogram’.
      Is there a more recent vehicle with a similar “non-parallelogram’ windshield? If so; name it.
      2.) How is it factually possible that Chevrolet did NOT have a small block V8 in 1955 in the U.S.?
      3.) Which GM Divisions built both small block and big block V8s in the 1960s?
      4.) First post-war U.S. make/model to feature a speedometer marked higher than 120 MPH.
      5.) 'Body by Fisher' and 'Body by Fleetwood' were two common badges found on certain GM cars. There was a third 'Body by —' tag found for many years on GM vehicles- what did it read?

      1.) What's the deal with this vehicle on the right?
      2.) True or false; Benz invented the automobile.
      3.) Name two non-American brands to use Ford V8s and two non-American brands to use Chrysler V8s.
      4.) How much wider was Pontiac's first year 'Wide Tracks' than it's GM siblings?
      5.) Last one is a trick question, because I don't know the answer. Maybe one of you does. What year/make/model is this emblem off of?

      1.) What American car is credited as having introduced the plastic front grille?
      2.) In the '50s and '60s, Chrysler built the 300 series of high performance cars. They began naming them in alphabetic order, starting in ’56 with ‘300-B’. By the time the run concluded, Chrysler had skipped a letter- why?
      3.) What ‘obsolete’ engine configuration did Chrysler use in one of its 1990s concept vehicles?
      4.) The first (2000) 1976 Cadillac Sevilles produced were all metallic silver with grey leather interiors. Why no color deviation?
      5.) A chief engineer for a vehicle manufacturer was laid up in the hospital for a stretch after surgery. To keep busy during the resulting downtime, he carved a bar of soap into a 3-D emblem for the company, which was put onto production vehicles nearly unaltered. What is the company & emblem?
