In the next few weeks I'm going to post 59 different trivia questions

of all different forms on C&G. Multiple choice, photo identification,

photo match up & even some true or false. Some questions will be

multiple part and others a simple one word answer.

At the end of the 59 individual trivia thread questions all the winners

will be added up and a trophy will be mailed via the USPS to the

over all winner of the first annual Tight Whips Trivia Trophy.

Best of luck to all, I encourage everyone to participate.


Current Score:

Fly: 12

WMJ: 10

Balthazar: 9

Yellow_Dart: 9

OldsGuy: 7

OcnBlu: 4

Chevelle7.4L: 4

American_Revolution2005: 1

Off the top of my head, the top left looks like a BMW inline six, from a 3 or 5 series. The top right looks like the engine in my truck (can't tell if it the Atlas 5 or 6, looks short though.). The bottom right... Cadillac V16? And the bottom left... I have no idear... some sort of strange V8 from the looks of it.

HINT: the "strange" one is air cooled and a HEMI.

Yeah, those odd fans make me think it's aircooled, but I am clueless. I've always refused to Google these questions, anybody can do that. I just do not know, homes. Was the Tucker a V8? The photo is fooling me, it looks old. Edited by ocnblu

Name three out of four of these motors and then tell us why

this car is special and you've got a point. Not this car model,

or make but this EXACT vehicle that you're staring at. It

has quite a dark past... a little creepy actually.

Okay... here's a hint: this car was featured

on a famous "socialist" album cover.

Well.... I spent HOURS working on question 58 and I'm just in

a hurry to get this one answered. It's real simple: 3 motors &

the blue econobox or all four motors and you've scored. All

is fair in love, war & Tight Whips trivia.

#58 will be the greatest question of them all!

The upper left is not very hard... it's a modern

day slant six DOHC with shorty headers right

from the factory. It is made by a manufacturer

that does not beleive in V6s or FWD, which

IMHO are very admirable principles to uphold.

Shifting gears, the lower left motor it's out of a

very unique "luxury sedan" that featured a

rear mounted motor (obviously with RWD) &

up front it had three or more headlights

depending on the model year. It is air cooled,

OHV and so small it would make a BOP 215

look like a deep skirt big block by comparison.

Now as far as the "blue bucket" it exists today

as a dark symbol of ritualistic suicide as a

means of creating positive political change to

stop oppression and violence.

Hmmm... OK, let me try then.

Top left is a M54 3.0L i6 from BMW.

Top right is a GM I5.

Bottom left is the engine from the Tatra T603.

Bottom right is the Cadillac V-16.

The rusty blue car belongs to Thích Quảng Đức, a Vietnamese monk who burned himself to death to protest his government's lack of religious support. A very small part of that car can be seen behind a burning Thich on the cover of Rage Against the Machine's first album.

And we have a winner!

For the record that particular Atlas motor is an I6

out of a Trailblazer, as for the BMW motor all you

had to say was inline-6 from a modern 3/5 series.

Now as far as the Austin it does have a dark past.

yes.... & a tie-breaker, if needed will

be the mother of all trivia questions!

At about 6:00 pm eastern I will post the greatest

"trivia questioon" ever seen here on C&G or any

other automotive forum, period.


BTW: Interesting footnote. What was left of Thích Quảng Đức after

he burned himself alive was cremated (yes, I know it's ironic) and

as the story goes his heart was found intact amongst the ashes.

He was pronounced a saint as a result because medical science

can not explain how the heck his heart survived those two violent

exothermic oxidation events.
