So the answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge a Buick... More or less!
It is in fact 1938 Mc Laughlin Buick Special, built in Canada for Right-Hand-Drive markets this one was delivered to Sunderland in the UK in 1938 so survived WWII and some terrible weather!
This beautifully restored example of what must be a rare car has appeared on screen in various films and TV shows!
Well done if you got it right, or at least that it was a #Buick Special.
#WeirdCarMastodon #BuickSpecial

The boot/trunk handle of a 1930's car. The handle bears the manufacturer name McLaughlin Buick. Beneath this is a number 8 in red semi circle. Thia refers to it having an 8 cylinder engine.
Right hand side of a black 1930's car.
There is a spare wheel carrier built in the wing, this bears the legend Buick. To the right of this the word Special is visible on the side of the the engine housing.

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge, it's a TVR Griffith 500. The details on it are mad, slits in the bonnet and the odd silver button was the door release.
Not sure what is happening wirh #TVR these days! Not the best times to have a Russian owner, especially as he didn't seem to be a great owner to start with. A shame they are not making mad things like this anymore.
Thanks to everyone who had a guess, well done if you got it or close to it.

The answer to yesterdays #NameThatCar challenge was as a fair number of people worked out it was a #Chevrolet #Impala with the consensus it was a 1960 model.
It is one of those cars that, while not really my thing, is a super attractive piece of automotive art, created by Detroit at close to the height of its power. I was particularly taken that it seems to still have a dealer badge on it.
Thanks to everyone who had a guess, well done if you got it right.

The rear light cluster of a period American car. The lights are arranged as three individual lamps each with a chrome surround. The lamps are very pointy. There is a big chrome bumper below the lights and thick chrome strip around the rear panel. A little piece of bodywork is visible it is mainly marine blue with a white stripe. There are chrome strips either side of the white stripe. The car appears to have a boot/trunk.
The door mirror on a car with blue bodywork, viewed from the back of the mirror. The mirror has a distinctive chrome three armed support that holds the mirror glass in place.

@TheBreadmonkey: Actually I think your original picture shows a Swedish #Toppola demountable camper on a #Saab, too, albeit an early one on a #Saab99 with Dutch number plate: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toppola

Definitely no Morris Minor given those rather modern taillights.

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge is a car that I like the look of, but have never really desired, despite owning its siblings! I would like to drive one sometime! The image with its odd vents made a few folks to think "rear-engined" whereas it is in fact Triumph's pocket homage to the E-Type, the #Triumph #GT6 MKIII. The vents are either cabin air or just decoration!
Well done if you got it right!

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge is a car that for a while was so ubiquitous in the UK it was referenced in politics!
As many of you worked out it is a #Ford #Mondeo MK2 2005 model in posh Ghia X trim.
This dates from a time when every volume manufacturer had a D segment car, nearly all of which, most like this were great family transport. Sadly all including the Mondeo are no longer in production.
Well done if you got it right, thanks for the guesses

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge is a car that would have been an object of desire in my youth, affordable performance compared to a hot hatch.
It is a #Ford #Escort MK1 #Mexico which I spotted for sale at a petrol station for Β£32k, isn't even an original Mexico.

The answer to the outstanding #NameThatCar challenge was as many spotted a #Rover P5B Coupe. It's not the most obvious Coupe. As these are indistinguishable from the saloon from the front corner I will take Rover P5. This is a car associated with Margaret Thatcher, while out of production by the time she became PM HMG having purchased the end of production vehicles, kept them in use by Minsters into the 80s.

A car I think still looks very modern despite being out production for 14 years.
It's tricky handling in the wet means that a fair number have ended up in the great scrapyard in the sky. Possibly helping secure it's future classic status.

The film connection is that an earlier Sunbeam Alpine was the first film "Bond Car" appearing in Dr No. More here: https://www.hotcars.com/the-real-story-behind-james-bonds-sunbeam-alpine.

Today's #WeirdCarMastodon #NameThatCar is a slightly controversial car, certainly in design terms, if memory serves.
It's another rear corner so as ever can you name it from this image?

Whole it should be a future classic, especially in its most exotic form, it is more of a #YoungTimer at moment.

Morning all, the answers to the #Coronation Weekend #NameThatCar challenge for #WeirdCarMastodon shared a theme, in that they all have a Royal connection.
So image 4 the Austin Princess
Image 1 was a Renault Dauphine, the Dauphine was the wife of the Dauphin so a French Princess.
Image 2 is an early NSU Prinz, the German for Prince.
This leaves the most difficult one, image 3. A Canadian Monach Richelieu! Yes I couldn't think of a car with King in the name!

For today's #WeirdCarMastodon #NameThatCar challenge here is something of a fixer upper!
This "car" lives the other end of town from me, sadly it doesn't look like much has happened to it in recent years.
Can you name it from this image of where the headlamp should be?
Reasonable popular in the UK, one of the Royal Family had one, not sure how many made it to other parts of the world.

So the answer to yesterdays slightly more than 50th #NameThatCar challenge was as many spotted a Land Rover Defender 110. It really was one and not two despite the colours looking different.
Also glad people continue to enjoy this daily challenge despite the absence of a prize!
With this "old school" #Defender already sought after, it's place in classic cardom seems assured.

Today my #WeirdCarMastodon friends we celebrate (belatedly) a #NameThatCar milestone with over 50 challenges have being made and answered since I started this as one off with an Avantime back in February. It has seen me through recovery from surgery, provided some fun moments and new connections, so my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has got involved.
To mark this milestone here are some panels, can you name the car?
