Devil's in the details

Recommended Posts

So, I decided to put one of these together, I think it's been a while.

Basically, I cut pieces out of pictures I found on the 'net. See if you can identify them...

I've included 2 interior shots and an engine shot this time too, to mix it up. Most of these are probably not that hard. :AH-HA_wink:

2. Seemed distinctive, until I cut it off the car. I'll be interested to see if this one is easy or not.

4. Bigger piece, blander piece of design.

8. Name the bland greenhouse.

10. I think this is stock, my apologies if it's not.

11. Gauges. Colour gives it away.

Posted Image

12. Engine pic, but should be simple.

Posted Image

13. Again, I have a feeling this will be simple for a select few.

Posted Image

14. Decided to include the complete pic here, because it's rather obscure. I have a feeling this answer will come from one of about 3 specific members.

Looks like a Chevrolet HHR

10. I think this is stock, my apologies if it's not. Hint: This vehicle is probably bigger than you think.

#2: Yes. It's a Laser. My mother had one in this colour. Maybe that's why it seemed more obvious to me. :P

#6: No. It's bigger than that.

#8 = E-class

It is a Mercedes, but you picked the wrong class.

2. No (see above)

4. Yes. That was a tricky one.

8. Yes! Good eye! Amazingly bland when you take it off the rest of the car, isn't it?

10. That is the closest guess yet. You still have the wrong manufacturer though.

11. No. Again, nobody got the manufacturer here. THey are two closely linked models (not rebadges) that share these gauges.

14. No. You are two years and half a continent off. :P

#10. No. Nothing that exotic. More of a people's car.

#11. Yes! They are specifically, Golf R32 gauges.

#14. No. This Marque no longer exists. :P

FYI on the Marquette:

The Marquette was an automobile manufactured by General Motors' Buick Division for model year 1930. Along with Pontiac, Viking and LaSalle, the Marquette conceived to span a price gap in General Motors' market segmentation plan. Marquette was placed below Buick, but above Viking which was to be sold in Oldsmobile dealerships. The Marquette "arrived" in dealer showrooms on June 1, 1929.

The Marquette line rode on an 114" wheelbase and was powered by an "L" head six 212.8 in³ producing 67hp. Marquette was built to sell in the $1,000 range, and was available in six body styles. Unlike Harley Earl's total LaSalle design, the Marquette's most unique styling feature was its herring-bone patterned grille. Reviewers at the time the car was released described it either looking like a small Oldsmobile or small Cadillac.

Compared to Oldsmobile's Viking, which only enjoyed a total production run of 7,224 over three model years (1929, 1930, 1931) Marquette produced 35,007 vehicles in the U.S. during its brief one year life span; additionally, GM Canada turned out another 6,535 Marquettes.

Despite its promising first year sales, two factors worked against the Marquette. The first involved Oldsmobile, which lost sales to Marquette; the second was that Buick executives didn't feel that enough Marquette's were sold to warrant the extra burden on the bottomline given the state of the economy. Buick gave no advance warning of the termination of the Marquette; just four months before the shut down 4,000 Marquette signs were shipped to dealers in the hope of better days ahead.
