About Quiz #383: Buick Master Six

about quiz_383_1925_buick_master_six_470

Well, that was fun! Lots of good and better aswers coming in. One answer - though not correct - was quite interesting as it told us about a make of car we never heard of before: the CWS T-1 , which was the first car ever produced in Poland. According to Wikipedia some 500 were made between 1925 and 1932. 
No the car depicted here - photographed near the entrance of the castle of Bran now better known as the home of Count Dracula... -  was produced in much larger numbers. All other senders agreed on Buick so we presume they are right. Most jurymembers agreed on Buick Master Six. So like quizes similar to this one in the past we had to go into the details.  And honestly we were quite glad to have solid support from long time jury member Kit Foster who graciously admitted his own guess was not perfect. "Goddess on 1927s, Motometers on earlier cars for example". It was decided that Ace Zenek was best on details and also on giving fundament to his guess. We are looking at a 7 passenger variety of the car - the lady in the middle almost 100% certain seated in the jump seat - which made the choice a lot easier. 
Ace, please send us your mail address and T-shirt size.  See you all next week! This weekend you can test yourself on a seemingly easy PostWar Puzzle. It's not!
