Question of the Week: Can you name these cars based on small details?


We stalked the Amelia Island auctions and concours for telling details of cars that a true aficionado might be able to pick out. Can you identify the year, make, and model of car from just these tightly-cropped photos? If any of these vehicles are in your wheelhouse, one of the images might make the identification seem easy, but there are seven photos depicting seven brands from cars built in four countries over the span of nearly 60 years. Starting with some easy ones, we’ve got major styling details and even some emblems to help jog your memory. We’re not going to reveal the answers until Monday, and if you think these were a piece of cake, we’ve got more on the way that will truly test your sheet metal mettle.
