Well, let’s not totally forget the CC Clue. Reshuffled priorities means that the Clue will appear more randomly than like clockwork. But here it is, so let’s recognize our winner from the Imperial Clue…oops, there wasn’t one. But Zykotec gets honorable mention for his “Imperial, maybe a 61” guess. Damn close indeed. On to the next one here…

Here we are again, ready to use those certain special brain cell synapses that were created by spending way too much time looking at cars when we shouldn’t have been. Finally a way to make use of them. I’m happy to announce that Stingray, one of our most loyal TTAC family members won the Sunbird Clue. Felicitaciones! Or did I get that wrong?
Since we had so much fun with body cavity openings lately, let’s do another. This one looks like it may have contracted some nasty disease, though, so make sure you’re careful examining it.
The ’63 Catalina went undiscovered, but two of you came mighty close. Dr. Lemming guessed a ’67 Pontiac, and partsisparts said “early sixties Grand Prix”. Close.
(Update: well, I like stumping you, but not that much. Does this bigger picture help?)
The ’92 Tempo Coupe’s “grille” stumped you clue-nailing maniac aces. That sure doesn’t happen often. As a consolation, here’s a Clue for our Saturday CC, which I normally don’t do. All that glitters is not silver, ore something like that.
The Turbo Sprint’s rosy-pink intake orifice certainly got everyone’s attention, if not the kind that helped them guess what it was attached to. But one person stayed focused; thirty-three guessed it was from a Suzuki Swift Turbo. Since the two are identical except for badging, he gets the win.
Since you’re all so hot on body cavity openings, here’s another, although it is a bit less suggestive.
I sure hope my suggestions about how to keep the Clue fresh for later participants didn’t dampen enthusiasm too much and was the reason we only had five guesses. That wasn’t the plan; so don’t feel repressed either; agree, disagree and emote, as long as it leaves a bit of question in the air as to the outcome.
Maybe it was because Bozzie guessed the T-Bird on the first guess. Congratulations! And happy hunting.
