I think I've got it. The year and model might be off, but as for the make, yeah, I'm pretty certain. And Mike, the rear wiper was optional...

The wiper threw me off at first. But after closer examination I believe I have the correct answer (I think). And if I am wrong I will change my answer on friday.

After several failed attempts I was able to determine the correct year and model ( I think, Harry hasn't given me the official word) but it was fun!

Thanks Harry, I am liking this!

This ID Quiz set the record for most wrong answers and most right answers!

Most wrong answers because almost everyone said this car is a 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak. But once I told you you were wrong, most of you got it right on the second, or third, or even fourth guess!

There was no such car as a 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak.

In 1948, Pontiacs were available in three model lines: the entry-level "FLeetleader" series, the mid-range "Torpedo" series, and the high-end "Streamliner" series. The "Silver Streak" script on the fender was a reference to the car's engine, it was not the car's model name.

The car in the picture is a 1948 Pontiac Torpedo.

Who got it right (most after several tries!):
