Although it makes things more difficult in choosing a winner; we like it when your answers to our bi-weekly car puzzle come in large quantities. And we highly expect this may be the case with this entry. A rare car, yes, but you’ll know this swoopy sweety, won't you. Hints? The headwear seen here shouts this car’s origins from the rooftops of, say, the Notre Dame. The car’s base should be easy as pie, too, just look at the wheels. But that’s enough for now. What we want from you is an answer that meets the demands listed below.

Others were the Chrysler La Comtesse, Chevrolet Impala Martinique, and Cadillac Eldorado Seville Baroness. And how about the one seen above: the Buick Flamingo with swivelling seats, upholstered in a remarkable Paisley fabric. The car is believed not to survive, so this may be your way to get your mother interested in barn finds?

Last week, a most remarkable car made it to the hallowed pages of Ebay, only to disappear very soon after. It was a Volkswagen Beetle, offered for sale for $525,000. Excuse us? Yes, really. But then this was not your average Beetle. In fact this was an....
