The Fiat 500 K aka Giardiniera is simple enough indeed but we're still guessing CCC's entry which, I'm afraid to say, seems a bit too modern for my liking.

Answer: Since time has run out, the car in question is a Ford EXP produced in the 80's as a sporty fuel efficient car to compete with the Japanese market. A dismal failure.

ID:887 is (I'm guessing) a Kia Brisa - basically a variant of the 2nd gen Mazda Familia, manufactured between 1974-82. No idea which year the pictured specimen might represent though.

I thought of that and rejected the thought. The Prinz 4 was much more boxy and never had wire wheels (not sporty enough).

I don’t know what that is but – and this is where it gets somewhat amusing – I saw it a mere two weeks ago, somewhat surprisingly concealed within an otherwise uneventful coachbuilding-related thread (most probably at the AutoPuzzles site but I’m not 100% sure of that). I remember it vividly because of those peculiar taillights which made me think that the design felt a bit too sloppy for… that’s right, whom? Michelotti perhaps? The fact that I didn’t save the picture to my HD there and then () leads me to believe that I felt confident (and how foolishly so!) about my ability to recall the model’s identity if required. This, in turn, seems to tell me that both the designer and the brand are fairly well-known, and that we’re dealing with some ultra-rare styling proposal or coachbuilt edition here.

More pathetically still, I actually toyed with the idea of using that model in order to torment CCC elsewhere but it looks like Fate played a nasty little trick on me!

Obviously, I’ve turned the Internet upside down since then but I haven’t managed to rediscover the said thread (I don’t believe I’ve seen the car anywhere else), not even by retracing my steps via my browser’s ‘history’ function for some reason.

C’mon, CCC! Have a heart and tell us what the damn thing is!

I can't tell you the sense of accomplishment I feel when I can stump you DM. It brightens my whole day. It's not an easy task and so infrequent. I just want to savor the moment.........................................OK

answer: 1966 Scorpion Sovereign 616M Saloon......I had some info on this car and for some reason I can't find it in my files. I will attach it straight away, when I come across it.

I think that as a Standard-Triumph Herald based kit car, it
hardly qualifies for this thread. See the Herald doors, windshield, bonnet catch.

Scorpion

Before posting a car, please ensure that
1) you know the car
2) It is not a limited production prototype
3) It is not a kit car
4) It is not a racing car or rally modification
5) It was actually mass-produced and sold in volumes.
