#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.
