2017 MSCC “WHAT’S IT?”   WEDNESDAY

MSCC What’s It? Wednesday is back for 2017.

 

This is a weekly guessing game for car guys and it was one of the most popular new MSCC features in 2016.

MSCC JUNE 21 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE PERSPECTIVE

 

Nothing is exactly as it seems in MSCC “What’s It?” Wednesday.

 

Despite the obvious attempts to obscure and give an odd perspective on a vehicle a number of very astute MSCC readers get the correct answer almost every time so maybe this second clue will be the winner.

 

IMGP9297-003

 

If not-check back here on Thursday.

MSCC JUNE 14 “WHAT’S IT? WEDNESDAY—THEY COME FROM DIFFERENT ANGLES

 

 

Today’s MSCC “What’s It?” Wednesday is pretty typical—it’s not a great picture.

 

If it was easy to ID these classics then everyone would do it so we all need a challenge.

 

Here’s the 2nd clue.

 

IMGP9173-002

 

If all else fails, check below tomorrow for the answer.

It’s a ’60 Chrysler.

MSCC JUNE 7 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: IT’S EASIER WITHOUT THE SMASHED FRONT END

 

This is actually a pretty common car by hobby standards.

 

The problem is it was crashed many years ago so you have to deal with the aftermath to ID this car.

 

IMGP9346-001

 

Puzzled by the carnage?

 

Check back here tomorrow.

MSCC MAY 31 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—PILE STUFF ON IT AND MAKE THE GUESS MUCH MORE DIFFICULT

 

There’s a really good way to make an MSCC “What’s It?” Wednesday guess a lot more difficult—pile stuff on the vehicle.

 

Here’s another look – maybe it’ll help.

 

IMGP3270-002

 

Check back tomorrow for a clear picture—the junk will still be there but the answer below the picture should really help.

 

IMGP3270-001

 

It’s a ’66 Polara

MSCC MAY 24 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—YOU GET A CLEAR VIEW THIS TIME

 

Most of the “What’s It?” Wednesday rides are based on distorted pictures but this time you’ll get a clear view of the front (above).

 

Here’s a clear view of the back half so use your imagination (or a good editing program) and piece the two together.

 

18622867_10154390070435684_631865476_n-004

MSCC MAY 17 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—THE GRILLE WON’T HELP YOU

 

Most car guys look for obvious clues with old iron and one of the biggest clues is found in the grill.

 

That won’t help because this beauty has a custom grill—here’s another clue.

 

IMGP8537-002

 

Come back tomorrow if you can’t ID it-you’ll find the answer below.

 

IMGP8537-001

MSCC MAY 10 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: IF YOU REALLY FOLLOW THE CLUES—YOU’LL NAIL THIS ONE

 

“What’s It?” Wednesday is designed to be solvable with varying degrees of difficulty.

 

This one may be at the higher end of the difficulty scale but if you put the first clue and this second clue in context you should figure it out.

 

AIMGP3033-002

 

If not—come back tomorrow for the solution. You’ll find it below.

MAY 3 MSCC “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—TWO CLUES, ONE CORRECT ANSWER

 

Last week’s clues made it relatively easy to solve “What’s It?” Wednesday and this week’s test could be the same if the first clue gives you a big advantage.

 

Maybe this 2nd clue will give you a better route to analyze the overall configuration of this classic.

 

IMGP8178-002

 

If not-come back tomorrow—you’ll find the answer below.

MSCC APRIL 26 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—THE KEY IS IN THE FIRST CLUE

If not there’s always a second clue like this one.

 

IMGP0656-002

 

If not check back here tomorrow.

MSCC APRIL 19 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—YES, IT’S A WELL KNOWN CAR

 

Last week’s “What’s It?” Wednesday proved to be a little difficult even with the visual clues.

 

The car was too rare so this week’s vehicle is a very common sight at very show you’ll see in 2017—here’s another clue.

 

IMGP4582

 

If you don’t get the answer come back tomorrow and check it out below…

MSCC APRIL 12 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY–YOU GET A GOOD CLUE TODAY

 

Most of these “What’s It?” Wednesday rides are familiar rides so you’ll see obscure pictures to make the ID a lot tougher.

 

This isn’t supposed to be easy but here’s another clue.

 

IMGP1914-002

 

If this isn’t enough check back here tomorrow.

MSCC APRIL 5 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: BRANCHES CAN BE YOUR FRIEND

 

The basic premise of “What’s It? Wednesday is simple—never give the reader a clear shot at the prey.

 

Branches can be a big asset when the game is to camouflage an object but this wider shot may help.

 

IMGP9344-002

 

If not, come back here tomorrow and you’ll find the answer below.

MSCC MARCH 29 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—AND NOW FOR A REAL CHALLENGE

 

Last week’s MSCC “What’s it?” Wednesday was a little too easy so this one may be a little more of a challenge.

 

Maybe this will help.   

 

IMGP3191-001

 

If not, check back here tomorrow for the answer.

MSCC MARCH 22 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—DEFINITELY THE SUM OF ITS PARTS

 

The key to a solution for any MSCC “What’s it?” Wednesday is to add the clues together.

 

You can look at the first clue then look at this one and hopefully you’ll come up with an overall image.

 

IMGP3988-002

 

If not look below here tomorrow and you’ll get the answer.

 

IMGP3988-001

 

It’s a ’65 Rambler Ambassador.

MSCC MARCH 15 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: THE TAIL LIGHTS SHOULD TELL THE TALE

 

Tail lights are a dead giveaway with most classic rides but do they tell the whole story?  

 

In this case they may seem obvious but here’s another look at the same vehicle.

 

IMGP2384-002

 

The answer will be here on Thursday.

 

IMGP2384-001

 

It’s a 1970 Corvette custom built for Farrah Fawcett by the legendary George Barris.

MSCC MARCH 8 “WHAT’S IT” WEDNESDAY—WILL THE SEVERE CUSTOM TOUCHES BE A FACTOR?

 

There are customs that barely make a ripple in the look of the car so they’re easily recognizable.

 

Then there’s the radical custom like this one.

 

MAY-JUNE 2011 055-002

 

If it’s too radical check in tomorrow—there’ll be a full picture (with a label to tell you what the original vehicle was before the custom job).

It’s a ’63 Plymouth.

MSCC MARCH 1 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: THE MID-WEEK PUZZLE IS A YEAR OLD

 

The “What’s it?” Wednesday concept started a year ago this month and it’s been a phenomenal success because car guys love a challenge.

 

Today’s example is definitely a challenge so maybe this second clue will help.

 

IMGP4055-001

 

Check back on Thursday for a clear picture of this classic piece of iron.

MSCC FEBRUARY 22 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: WILL A CLEAR PICTURE OF THE SUBJECT HELP?

 

This “What’s It?” Wednesday subject is a non-distorted shot of the car so you’ll either get in seconds or you’ll never figure it.

 

Here’s your second clue for an overall view of the car.

MSCC FEBRUARY 15 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—ADD-ONS CAN ADD PROBLEMS

 

Old cars and trucks are the easiest vehicles in the world to ID because they are so unique.

 

That’s fine when they’re completely stock but when guys add stuff to them it changes the game in a big way so here’s another view of the same vehicle.

 

IMGP9124-001

 

Check back here tomorrow for the answer.

MSCC FEBRUARY 8 “WHAT’S IT WEDNESDAY?”— SO? DO YOU REALLY NEED A TAIL LIGHT TO ID THIS BABY?

 

A complete car is far too easy to identify so here’s another stick in your spokes.

 

There are no tail lights on this baby so do your best and give it your best effort with this second clue.

 

IMGP3982-001

 

Failing that, check back here tomorrow.

Failing that—come back tomorrow for the answer.

IMGP7477-001

 

If not, check back here tomorrow  for a clear shot.

JANUARY 11 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—IF THE HEADLIGHT DOESN’T HELP YOU’RE PROBABLY OUT OF LUCK

 

You rarely get a clean look at a “What’s it?” Wednesday headlight so this is an exception to what few rules there are in this game.

 

Maybe you need an overall view no matter how distorted it is so here’s your second clue.

 

 

IMGP4701-002

 

 

Maybe you’ll need to come back and see this third picture tomorrow because it’s an actual view of the vehicle.
