Tough to crack car puzzle #155

Tough to crack car puzzle #155
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. As we expect several of you to reply, it will help if your message tells us a bit more than just a make and a model designation. Fun facts give bonus points. Think you can handle it? Do drop us a line in the comments below. Before you enter your answer be sure to check the Rules first. For now: have a good weekend (and don’t forget your mother tomorrow).

Mother’s Day 2017: what women want

Mother’s Day 2017: what women want
Don’t forget your good old mother this Sunday – it will be Mother’s Day. You can bring her flowers or chocolates, but why not take her out for a ride? It’s Spring, the sun may well be shining and we’re sure you’ll find a fitting destination. What car to choose? Well did you know several manufacturers tried to make women-specific cars back in the golden age of motoring? There was the Dodge La Femme, white and pink in colour, and outfitted with specific accessories such as colour coded lipstick holder, umbrella and handbag. 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?

The Beetle burdened with history

The Beetle burdened with history
      

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....
