Talking Contest IV - Guess The Ride, Win a Prize

Guess the ride!

Be sure to refresh your browser when you return so that you see the most current reveal!

Contest Rules
  • One post per day per Camaro5.com member. A day is defined by the clock in my kitchen, which is on Eastern time.
  • Each guess MUST contain the Year, Make and Model of an actual production vehicle. (Example: Speed Racer's Mach V is not an actual vehicle)
  • Close doesn't count, you must guess all three correctly
  • Any prize will be shipped only to winners who reside in the 48 contiguous States, Hawaii and Alaska
  • Each incorrect guess will reveal one additional square
  • Only non-vendor members are eligible
  • Year, Make and Model defined as: YEAR; The year of the vehicle, not the year it was released. MAKE; The manufacturer of the vehicle, MODEL; The full model (IROC Z28 is not the same as Z28)
  • BONUS - At times throughout the game I will add a possible bonus to the game. The bonuses can be of a public nature (shown to everyone in the game) or a private bonus (sent in the form of a PM) Look for the new bonus questions/riddles/trivia/etc. in this first post.


Bonus #1: Cannonballin'

Answer either question correctly and get your choice of removing 15 squares or a private clue. You can only guess each once. If someone gets both correct before anyone else gets either one correct, you get BOTH bonuses!

When I was just a youngster, there was a race across the united States called "The Cannonball Baker Sea-To-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash", or better known as the Cannonball Run. I dreamed of getting my shot at the trophy but unfortuantely for me they ran the last one in 1979, a few years shy of me getting a driver's license. So, my buddies and I had to create our own, somewhat-not-so-legal rally, and we did so by running from Clarksville, Indiana to Miami Beach, Florida. How long did it take me to get there?

Some details of the trip:
Car: 1986 Chrysler Conquest TSI
Passengers: 3
Driver Changes: 4
Miles Driven: 1132
Route: Louisville, Nashville, Atlanta, Valdosta, Lake City, Daytona, Miami
Departure Time: 6pm Eastern
Pit Stops: 1 rear tire blowout @ 140MPH nearing Vero Beach, Florida. Switched to mini-spare.

How long did the trek take?

a) 12 hours 26 minutes
b) 12 hours 58 minutes
c) 13 hours 31 minutes
d) 14 hours 15 minutes
e) 15 hours 09 minutes

What was the name of the shop at 95th and Flagler in Miami that had the only 16" tire in all of Miami? (16" was a BIG tire at that time, most cars had no more than 15's)

a) Miami Tire
b) Charlie's Tire Service
c) Tread Heads
d) Flagler Marathon & Tire
e) A1A Tire

Public Clues: NONE YET


Wrong Answers: 2010 Astin Martin DB9 | 2010 Chevrolet Equinox | 2010 Chevrolet Camaro | 2010 Lexus IS 250 | 2009 Chevy Corvette Z06 | 2009 Mazda Miata | 2009 Nissan 370Z | 2008 Chevrolet malibu | 2008 Chevrolet Lumina SS | 2007 Nissan 350z | 2006 Ford GT | 2006 Nissan 350z | 2005 Nissan 350Z | 2004 Chevy SSR | 2003 nissan 350z | 2001 chevy Corvette | 2000 Chevy Corvette | 1983 Chevrolet Corvette | 1975 AMC pacer X | 1974 AMC Gremlin | 1973 Pontiac Trans Am | 1972 Chevy Chevelle | 1970 DeTomaso Mangusta coupe | 1970 Ford Mustang | 1970 Ford Pinto | 1970 Ford Torino | 1970 Plymouth Barracuda | 1970 Pontiac Trans-Am | 1969 Chevelle SS | 1969 Chevrolet Caprice | 1969 Pontiac GTO | 1968 Chevy Camaro | 1967 Chevy Camaro | 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 | 1967 AC Shelby Cobra | 1965 Ford Mustang | 1965 Shelby Corba | 1962 Nash/Hudson Metropolitan | 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS | 1960 Aston Martin DB4 | 1958 Nash Rambler wagon | 1957 Plymouth Fury | 1955 Desoto Firedome 2dr HT | 1940 Supermarine Spitfire Mark 2 | 1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster | 1936 Cord 810 White | 1929 Whippet 98A coupe | 1928 Hupmobile Century 125 | 1928 Lasalle 303 RS coupe | 1912 Hudson model 33 coupe

The divided box below contains an image of a vehicle. It might be a car, truck, SUV, minivan, golf cart, motorized cooler, who knows. All you have to do to win is guess the correct year, make and model of the vehicle. Each time a wrong answer is given, another square will be revealed. The squares with the most revealing details will be revealed last. One post per day per person.
