Jeopardy!

10 posts in this topic

Some of you may remember that a while ago, for a few years in a row, I created different trivia games ... and awarded prizes. This time around ... 6 Jeopardy!-style questions (1 for each Monte Carlo generation: 1970-1972, 1973-1977, 1978-1980, 1981-1988, 1995-99, 2000-07) and 2 bonus "TV cars" opportunities.

Prizes? To Be Announced. Post your replies here; I'll keep track of the scores and post the correct responses (in the form of a question!)....

66 STOCK CAR

= 07 POINTS

The car pictured below is at the Route 66 Hotel and Conference Center along US Route 66 in Springfield IL and is considered to be this generation Monte Carlo.

0039_090509d01_ILsprngfld_hcc.jpg

HISTORY LESSON

= 70 POINTS

In the mid-1990s, the Impala name was resurrected for a sporty version of the Caprice, which was still rear-wheel drive. In 1995, the Monte Carlo name was resurrected for the coupe version of the front-wheel drive Lumina coupe/sedan, which had replaced the Celebrity ~5 years earlier. At that time (late 1980s/early 1990s), all of Monte Carlo's cousin nameplates (Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme, Buick Regal and Pontiac Grand Prix) continued on front-wheel drive cars, while the Monte Carlo name disappeared. The re-designed 1995 Lumina sedan was the second generation Lumina (the third generation becoming the new, front-wheel drive Impala), while the re-designed 1995 coupe is considered to be this generation Monte Carlo.

TALL TAIL

= 73 POINTS

The taillight pictured below is from this Monte Carlo generation.

NAMEPLATE PLACEMENT

= 78 POINTS

The only year of the 2nd generation Monte Carlos that the nameplate on the front of the car is on the grill chrome, not the body panel/header.

EMBLEM ETIQUETTE

= 81 POINTS

The hood ornament emblem pictured below is from this Monte Carlo generation.

_trivia1.jpg

MILESTONE MARKER

= 95 POINTS

The 70 millionth Chevrolet produced was a 1970 Monte Carlo on this date.

GENERAL LEE KNIGHT, BONUS

= 88 POINTS

January 21, 1983, television's "car night", saw Coy and Vance Duke helping Boss Hogg in the "Ding, Dong, the Boss Is Dead" episode of CBS' Dukes Of Hazzard. Meanwhile, that same night, the "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" episode of NBC's Knight Rider featured Michael and KITT (a modified Pontiac) entering the Alternative 2000, a cross country race for cars running on alternative fuel, to find the saboteur. One of the race cars is an orange Dodge Charger, driven by a pair of relatives similar to the Duke boys, complete with a Dixie flag on their uniforms. Their Charger was powered by this fuel source.

RED, WHITE & GREEN, BONUS

= 77 POINTS

ABC's "Starsky & Hutch" featured 1974-1976 Ford Torinos (body style between those years mainly unchanged), supplied by Ford Motor Company's Studio-TV Car Loan Program for Spelling-Goldberg. But, William Blinn, the show's creator, originally wanted this car, because he fondly remembered a green and white one that he owned.

Nice job, WK ... glad you put 'em in the form of a question. Some haven't ... thus:

*** Ahem! This is JEOPARDY!. Your answers should be "in the form of a question". ***

Since the first topic is worth only 7 points, the answer to "66 STOCK CAR" is below. I will deem points accordingly.

In the meantime, I'll wait to post the rest of the correct replies to give people a chance to CHANGE responses to be "in the form of a question." This also gives others a chance to POST guesses to all but the first topic.

CHANGE or POST your replies to "HISTORY LESSON", "TALL TAIL", "NAMEPLATE PLACEMENT", "EMBLEM ETIQUETTE", "MILESTONE MARKER", "GENERAL LEE KNIGHT" and "RED, WHITE & GREEN".

ANSWER: 66 STOCK CAR

= 07 POINTS

What is the 6th generation?

Remaining correct responses coming next time.... Then, I'll tally the points and post the totals during my following visit.

POSSIBLE prizes, paid for by me

1-year National MC Owners Association membership

1-year First Generation MC Club membership

1-time donation to group/board of your choice

I didn't play, because in my opinion, there have only been 4 generations of Monte Carlo.

And the fourth doesn't really count.

I take it you essentially lump the '78 - '80 (3rd gen) Monte in with the '81 - '88 model (4th gen) ... ?

I do see your point, though.

I see your point, but don't quite agree....

It's not like you can take the rear fenders and interchange them....

*pauses*

Course, I chuckle when people say the 2006-7 are a different generation. If that's the case, the MC has a heck of a lot more generations, considering the switch from 2 headlights to 4 (1975 to 1976), and the SC to LS changes in the 4th gens.....

I would call it a major (and excellent) MCE rather than a separate generation.
