The car in the picture is a 1951 (I think) Toyota "Toyopet" Model SA.

This particular model was made from 1947 to 1952, and they all looked pretty much the same... so if you guessed the model year within that range you got credit. Who got it right:

"wasting" 3-4 hours on a computer requires something with pigs and birds....

spending 3-4 hours doing research is LEARNING.... we should try to do THAT every day.

unless pigs and birds are more your "thing".
