GUESS THE CAAAAAARRRRRRR!

Post  T5 on Wed Apr 13, 2011 3:55 pm

Hello Redline LoL lovers,

You like cars and you like games! Am i right?

Guess what? here is a new car game!
Because we all are a bit busy to play sim/bl; real life is bugging us, isn't it?
Today it's time for a simple but fun game for you car lovers.

Here is how it goes:
In the Netherlands we don't really have a good climate for cars. And we don't have enough garages to store them. So people wrap their oldtimers or other precious wheels under a cover. When I see one of those i always get curious and start guessing, some times it's easy (like a DS) but mostly not.
Now i've started taking pictures of those covered cars i come across.

Every week on wednesday i post a covered car and all you have to do is..... guess!
First one that posts with the right answer wins. You have a week every wednesday a post a new one. If you can give more correct details, like year, specific type, interesting facts etc. you can win even if your answer has comes in later.

If you have pictures of your own or see a covered car, mail them to me (t5.1(at)me.com) and i make sure there is a new quest every week!

Good luck and Have fun! here is car number one

European cars aren't my thing. The first thought that comes to mind is a Mustang, but in Europe...? IDK I like the idea of the challenge though and look forward to viewing the photos as they are posted.

From my point of view, that's the Firebird's twin - a 2nd Generation Chevrolet Camaro with a powerdome on the hood (like on this '73 Camaro Z28), but by the looks of it, it doesn't have a spoiler.


EDIT: By the way - T5, please specify that stuff with the 'additional details' better. I reckon that the first one who gets the right manufacturer, exact model and generation right, should win, regardless if someone else later adds more details.

Neat idea! I'm going to agree with Val...2nd gen f-body with a cowl hood. By the way the hood slopes, I'm thinking 1976 Camaro with a fiberglass hood.

Hm, isn't the Triumph too short and too high?

My first imagination was a Citroen SM, but the rewarded wheel cases and the hump on the hood are arguments against.



BTW T5: Nice idea to pick up us again ;-)

too short, yes is the only doubt I have. But is very close to the front design of the covered car. Has no rear wings, and rims are close, although the triumph don't equip american tires...

I thought Citroen as well, but can't find something similar...

If you realized that you can have a Camaro F-Body with a powerdome'd hood (there are various shapes) but at the same time with no rear wing and no front spoiler, you'd be quite a bit further. Razz

In answer to your email, I do not know enough about the brand to give you much more information than I did, but somewhere I have a picture of the car out from under the tarp. If I can find it, I'll send it to you.

Yay! sunny

Regarding the new one:

The "SIRROMET" cover means that an Australian winery paid money to be placed on the cover for a car and it appears to have both a serious front splitter and a rear wing, so it might be a race car.
The grille & headlight placement remind me of a Holden VE Commodore.

I'm pretty sure that this is a Holden VE Commodore (current generation) racing in the V8 Supercars Australia series.

If the grille was split, it could have been a G8 or a Commodore Special Edition (Commodores fitted with leftover Pontiac bumpers).

That's the second winning for the Val, where is the Hamilton on the LoL-forum that beats this German in the third round?
Here it is:
