About Quiz #380: 1928 Ford Model A taxi!


about quiz_380_1928_ford_model_a_courtesy_stew_dean_470

Finally we had an extremely simple car in Quiz 'What is it' #380 and now people were afraid to answer. At least it seems that this was the case. Four competitors were spot on with 1928 Ford Model A Tudor. When you check in to see the quiz results you can read that John Elema came up with most details; well done John. Still it's our opinion that this week's prize should go to somebody else as we asked also to be very correct on the accessories. And there was only competitor to identify the extras on the car correctly as from a taxi!

His wording: "It's a 1928 Model A Tudor sedan. You can see the Drum tailight which was only used in 1928. Later cars had a light mounted on the rear fender.It is being used as a taxi; has a luggage rack on the back and a for hire light on the lefthand screen post. Accessories include left hand welled fender for spare tyre and a tool box on the running board." Congratulations John Cochran! Please send us your T-shirt size and mail address. See you all next week.
