Remember... don't post hints or answers here!

You need to specify year, make and model (all three!) to get credit. PM me with your answer.

It was the similarities to the American "Fuselage" styling of the early 1970's and the Mopar-style rear view mirror that gave me the clue as to what brand it might be. The steering wheel being on the right narrowed down the country of origin. Harry is one of the best guys that I know of as far as manipulating a picture in Photoshop goes, but he plays his games cleanly. He would never flop a photo to put the wheel on the wrong side to intentionally throw us.

Good one Harry! It took a ton of searching to get this one. Keep these challenges coming! :)

I didn't mean to imply that he reworked the images in these games - Just that he cleaned them up to take away any hard and fast clues like emblems, badges, and license plates, maybe eliminating the wording on a sign in the background to eliminate using the language as a hint for the country of origin. I find these games to be one of the highlights of the forums. Hat's off to Harry for doing such a great job with them!

That's exactly right. I get rid of any obvious clues (or answers) in the photo... emblems, scripts, etc., but I don't mess with the photo otherwise (except maybe crop it a bit). In this case it's pretty obvious why I cropped the photo...

Leaving it uncropped would have made this just a little too easy for you guys... :lol:
