'Guess The Car' Guesses Hint At Loves Lost

‘Guess The Car’ Guesses Hint At Loves Lost

MindGames is a weekly series of interactive puzzles designed to fire the synapses and inspire creativity.

We at MindGames Central have an interesting job: reading the entries each week and weeding out the incorrect ones. Sometimes it’s just one or two; sometimes it’s a lot more. Usually, they’re obviously wrong and it’s easy dismiss them out of hand. Sometimes, the guesses hint at emotional baggage and tug at our heartstrings.

This month, we received such guesses as Prelude, Defender, Love Bug, Wrangler, Rendezvous and the Inquisitor, who was a character in either Star Wars, Dragon Age or some other form of media, but definitely a painful memory. All very interesting suggestions – but all (sadly) incorrect.

Before you and me = Pre us (Prius)

This month’s puzzle was the Toyota Prius (Pre + Us). And, in hindsight, the Inquisitor just seems jealous.

Everyone who guessed correctly was put into our giant rotating drum and winners of a $10 McDonald’s Gift Card were randomly selected. Congratulations to:

• Greg Paczkowski, Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth, FL
• Dave Lynch, Richland High School, West Richland, WA
Michael Margalis, North Pocono High School, Covington Twp., PA
• Harold Strickland, Triton High School, Erwin, NC

Were Things Better When They Were Simpler?  

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
