Curbside Classic Clue

curbside classic clue

The fairly generic egg-crate grille of the ’79 Caprice was tough. But we have some remarkable talent playing CCC, and one of the best of them is tklockau, who has won several before. Congratulations are in order.

Today’s clue is a bit different. No, the clue is not my xB in the background. And yes, you are looking at/through a regular production car, not some hippie bus with a glass gunner’s dome from a B17 on the top. Have fun.

    It is the 77-79 Impala/Caprice coupe rear window. Come on, Paul - can't you PLEASE try to get into the spirit of Panther Appreciation Week without getting all passive-aggressive on us with these Chevys?

      I never got the memo about PAW; it just appeared on Monday morning, when I already had my Chevy piece together. Sorry.

    Guys, its probably not a DeLorean (as I guessed), but I've never known Paul to duplicate a CC, and the Impala coupe is essentially the same car as the last Caprice sedan CC, so I find it highly unlikely Paul did one - unless he's got himself some serious "Box" love.

    Definitely a reflection, probably in the trunk/body line. Note the bend in the roof edge as it nears the gap - the metal is slightly deformed there. The variation in clarity suggests variation in reflection, not variation in glass cleanliness. And no camera takes a photo that poor today of something through glass.

    51 Hudson Commodore rear window.
