Curbside Classic Clue (Plus CC Suggestions)

You guys ripped the Handi-van clue apart on the first guess, by Dave Skinner. And I predicted it would take twelve guesses! I’ve got to keep reminding myself this is the Major League. Well, I’m going to (try to) crash your party this time. Have fun.

Meanwhile, after six months of Curbside Classics, how about a little customer feedback? Do you like them long, medium, short, or a mix? Is there too much detail and historical information or not enough? Prefer to see a particular brand or popular car (Mustang, etc.) done randomly or in chronological order? More virtual comparisons? Are you ok with the boring and mundane finds, or should I be more selective? Are trucks good? A fairly even spread of cars from the fifties through the eighties? Anything else I should know?

    jacksonbart : October 12th, 2009 at 11:18 pm more nudity please, an early Subaru Justy Justy was going to be my guess. The car I learned to drive on. Turbo, AWD Inline-3 5spd. Bulletproof. Parent's first new car when they bought it for $6200 in 1988.

    Re: CC Subject matter is dealer's choice. You need to have something worth saying about the subject to make the peice interesting. Format and length have been pretty good. I've never been bored by one, and relating the subject to real life experiences always makes the pieces more relatable.

    There's a lot to dislike about this site but Curbside Classics as it's currently constituted is *the* reason to come here. Whatever you're doing, you're doing it right.

    Definitely a Fiesta. My first car, a 79 Ghia I got going in to my senior year of high school. The car was so light you could light up the tires and not move, and even chirp the tires in 2nd... I totaled it, unfortunately. Love the segment, yes. You should leverage your readers, and let us send in similar pictures (no promises you'll use, obviously), so you don't do all the hunting. Then you'll get the variety people are looking for.
