some of these are pretty tough:

that is pretty tough.  I got 27/50.  the hardest part was figuring out how to spell some of the models...

nice find

After a while (giving everyone a chance to try it first) it would be cool to collaberate our efforts to see if we can get them all.

I'm up to 29/50 also.  When we feel like collaborating, here's what I need:

4: Make/Model
5: Model
6: M/M
9: M/M
10: M/M
11, 12, 15, 17, 21, 25: M/M

Spoiler - skip this entry if you haven't tried on your own yet.

6 is a Mini Cooper
9 is a ford GT40

I thought 10 was a saleen S7 but I was wrong
same with 21 which I thought was an Alfa GTV6, but again I was wrong

to me 11 looks really familiar, but I can't think of the M/M

and to me 22 looks like a BMW M3, but apparently I am wrong there too.

Damnit, I could do better if I could spell worth a damn!  My brain is literially wired wrong for spelling!  They need drop down lists for this game!!!

#17 is an Austin Mini...the old school Mini.  A picture of the right front quarter panel, just behind the front tire, and the door.

Title: Re: I must be slacking
Post by: Cole on May 09, 2006, 02:06:14 PM
DUDE! I never would have tried "Escort". Looks like an old muscle car. Did not realize the name went back that far.

I was trying "Lancer" but not Lancia. Never would have got the model.

#4 Ford Focus
#10 McLaren F1
#11 Pagani Zonda
#12 um...blue(I keep thinking old VW, Saab, etc but not right)
#15....I swear I know this one but just can't get it.
Title: Re: I must be slacking
Post by: Cole on May 09, 2006, 02:08:09 PM
I only need 12 and 15
Title: Re: I must be slacking
Post by: ianacole on May 09, 2006, 02:11:02 PM
I was originally thinking coronet myself.  But then I got to thinking of all the fords that I ever saw in europe, and escort struck me as one of the first.

10 I would have never gotten.  I should have known the pagani.  15 doesn't strike a bell with me at all.  12, you're right.  I've tried saab, vauxhall, vw, volvo, and it's right there...
Title: Re: I must be slacking
Post by: ianacole on May 09, 2006, 02:14:18 PM
AH HA!!  #12 is the Morris Minor!

sweet.  thanks for the help guys.  

I know the citroen 2cv, but never knew the name or who made that car.


You know what car I think is really hot... the Lancia Delta Integrale.   I have seen old rally pictures of it, but that is a good looking car.

thanks for the help guys, that was fun.  Without help, I think I ended up with 32/50, but then started to google stuff and work off of the answers here.

good times, good times....
