What Am I? Fuzzy Logic
Welcome to another edition of DT’s cure for the Monday morning blues, everybody’s favorite
killing guessing game — What Am I?.
This week we take a look a pixelated mess and you get to decide what kind of car it belongs to.
mid 50"s Chrysler product. 56 Dodge?
Oooooh, man. That's every bit '57/'58 DeSoto
'57. And it's a wagon.
Was that too easy? Okay, find the actual car in the photo.
I just googled '50s ________ from the rear(fill the blank with various Big 3 options)'. Looked a little Christineish to me, so I narrowed it down to Chrysler products. I saw that non- wagons had an exhausty thing at the bottom, then saw the ambulance that confirmed it for me.
I'm trying to find your 'ol blue, but I must drive for a moment.
I shall return…
Well, I'm not having any luck finding this exact photo. But I'll still take one of those sickle & hammer DT shirts in extra medium whenever you get to it.
Hope you had safesearch on. If id have googled 50s from the rear i doubt id have seen too many cars.
Right? Surprisingly, all I got was cars, no safesearch to speak of. Should have gotten something to do with Jayne Mansfield's deathday and all…
You knew those tail lights were too distinctive. If you had shown the tailgate bumpers it still would have been easy. So are you saying to find the source of this picture?
He is now.
Tom — yes, go forth and find! -Vince
it's not the one in this NY Times slide show, but totally worth a look
Good one, guys! This it?
K2 — yes, that is the same one, also find it here on eBay.
And here is the original picture.
Gorgeous car. Probably worth the $55K asking price, though that's not in my reach. So if somebody buys it, I call shotgun!
BTW, I love the wagon theme lately. Awesome. They're the best for when the natives attack; just circle 'em up and they form a good makeshift fort.
nah, that's the first one I saw, but it's too green
I modified the hue on the blurry part to throw you guys off the scent!
i *knew* that was shooped! – i could tell from the pixels
So changing the color led to not finding it, and this green one of course was the first one to find.
Excellent pot metal chrome job here!
Chrysler used the same station wagon platform for all of its late '50's wagons and just swapped the front clip and taillights for the particular model. You can see it if you compare the DeSoto and Plymouth images above. The back is identical except for the lights.
You're right. That's why I posted it. That and the joke, of course.
Anything for a joke.
