May's Guess The Car Puzzle Too Rich For Most

May’s Guess The Car Puzzle Too Rich For Most

We thought the answer was pretty clear - most of our entrants did not. This month, EVERYONE had a chance to win.

It’s nothing we tried to do – it wasn’t intentional. And we’re certainly not proud of it. But the fact is, this month’s “Guess The Car” puzzle stumped nearly 99.9999% of the entrants. Sure, we get it – Wall Street dude, farmer; suit and tie, overalls; briefcase, pitchfork; the answer could have been a lot of things.

Congratulations to Brian Kelly from Waltham High School, in Waltham, MA, who was the only one to recognize the picture represented someone who ISN’T a tall city man – in other words, he is a small (some might even describe him as mini) Countryman.

Many of the other guesses were inspired, yet still wrong. However, we still need to pick winners so everyone besides Brian went into the hopper for a couple of spins and we randomly selected 9 other winners of a $10 McDonald’s Gift Card. Congratulations to:

• Brian Kelly, Waltham High School, Waltham, MA
• Jackson Fuchs, Forest City Regional High School, Forest City, PA
• Paul Yuravak, Cuyahoga Valley Career Center, Brecksville, OH

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.
