Car Photo of the Day: Smile!

Filed under: Car Photo Of The Day — chuck goolsbee @ 3:00 pm

Today’s CPotD is a shot taken a few years ago on the Classic Motorcar Rally. The car in the foreground is iconic, and should be an easy guess, but the other three (slightly) visible cars should generate some good guesses.

I chose this pic because it shows the winner of this years Classic Motorcar Rally, Antoinette Slavich. She’s the navigator for Alan Chockie, and is wearing the straw hat in this photo… obviously she’s poring over the next segment in the route book. This year the Slavich/Chockie team put on a Master’s Class on TSD rallying. Dad & I did pretty well, recovering from our first-morning’s errors by running a very good rally, but even if we’d done as well Friday morning as the rest we’d not been able to touch them. Second place is as good as we could have shot for… we ended up coming 4th in class, and 5th overall. (More details later.)

Meanwhile let’s let the carspotters play “name those cars” in the comments.

  1. 4th one out, 67 vette, 5th one out, wild guess XKE?

  2. Close Johnny, it is a 64 ‘Vette. The 5th? I have no idea as all there is visible is a windscreen. For all I know (and can recall, it very well could be my own car! 😉

    The fun one is car #3.

  3. Now that I can SEE Car #3..it’s a Daimler Dart SP 250..that nose is ENTIRELY diagnostic! Dunno waht #5 is, but I’m fairly certain it’s not 65E.
