Mystery Car

Kamil Kaluski September 28, 2018 Mystery Car 16 Comments

Congratulation, children! You were on your game last week and it took you only two days (this is sarcasm if it is’t painfully obvious) to figure out what the Mystery Car was. It was a first generation Miata, of course. Congratulations to  for correctly identifying it. You are, of course,… The Person of the Moment

Now we get to today’s Mystery Car. As you can see in this rather unaltered image, I took this picture with my phone, because you can see me actually see ma taking the picture. It’s almost a damn selfie. There was something really intriguing about this mystery car. I am hoping that you can tell me what make and model it is. Good luck.

    Toyota FJ40 or some other Land Cruiser with the same front clip?

  • Okay, I’ll bite: What’s so intriguing about an LM002?

    • The door hinges, Michael. They looked like they were right out of a hardware store with the intent of being used on a farm fence.

      Congrats, you’ve once again ruined it for everyone else. But since you’re so smart, tell us where I took this picture.

        Italy?

      • Nobody solves the Mystery Car and you get grouchy. It takes too long to solve the Mystery Car and you get grouchy. It’s solved quickly and you get grouchy. I’m beginning to sense a pattern…

        Anyway, judging from the color of this one and from the reflections in its paint, I’ll say it’s chassis #12231 in the Museo Lamborghini in Sant’Agata Bolognese.

        • In other words, this one:

        • I was proud of you today for last week. But yes, your educated eyes picked up on my general displeasure of you guyses’ timing. That said, part of this is my dry humor and part is me exercising my dominance over you peons.

          Good job on location. As to the chassis – I really don’t know. But you’re probably right.

        Typical Lamborghini blacksmithery?

      God
      Dammit…

      I was googling my ass off and never considered this one.
      I couldn’t place those hinges and that cut line at all.

      • Without giving away too many of my trade secrets, I’ve solved more than one Mystery Car by starting with what’s parked next to it using its reflection.

        • Vairship

          You searched for “Kamil Kaluski”? 😉

      Thanks, Doc! You’ve saved me from a wild goose chase through any pictures taken in the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum.

        I was going the same way… just from the lighting alone. I would have been at least 50 years off!

        • Which speaks loudly of Lambo’s technical advancements, past and present.

      • You’re welcome, although the A-C-D photos are probably still worth reviewing.

    That paint is amazingly shiny. At first I thought it was chrome or polished aluminum, which along with the crude hinges and mesh grille made me think either vintage or hot rod. Kudos to Mr. Harrell for getting it first try. In my defense I always associate the LM002 with red or white paint.
