  3. 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? View full article

  5. 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? View full article

  7. COME 'N GIT 'EM! 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?

    Trivia Tuesday: March 3, 2015

    In the last Trivia Tuesday we had a Thunderbird with a giant hole in the side. This week we have Flying Goddesses and Hatchbacks. Can you answer our Trivia Tuesday challenge? What was available on a 1941 Cadillac that you could not get again until 1952? For many years, Cadillac featured various 'Flying Goddess' hood ornaments, especially grandiose in the 1930s. When did the last Flying Goddess appear on a Cadillac (from the factory)? Name the earliest American production hatchback car. Name an American car where the vehicle, it's tires and it's battery all had the same brand name. Name two American vehicles that featured the model year prominently displayed on the exterior of the car. Ford & Chevy have long battled on numerous fronts. Chevy eclipsed Ford in V8 displacement, building a 496 CI unit vs. Ford’s 460 CI. But Ford eclipsed Chevy by building a smaller RPO V8 than Chevy’s 262 CI job. What was the displacement of Ford’s smallest RPO V8? Answers to last week's Trivia Tuesday: Crosley Oldsmobile; 1968 455 CI Fireball 1950s; Mercury 1950: 110 HP, 1958: 400 1958 and 1975 Ford-built gas turbine testing.
