WELCOME TO MYSTARCOLLECTORCAR “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY FOR 2018

 

This is the third year for MSCC “What’s It?” Wednesday.

 

This feature was an overnight success back in 2016 so the only thing to do was keep it rolling in 2018.

 

Look for the first clue at the top of the section and the second clue will be in the middle. If you’re stuck for the answer, you’ll find it at the bottom of the section.

MSCC JUNE 20 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—THE ONLY THING THAT CHANGED WAS THE COLOR OF THE PICTURE

 

Some guys would recognize this What’s It? clue right away if it was in color so that’s why it’s not in color but you get a good fender and headlight shot.

 

This is another full fender clue and it’s in color—just not the correct colors.

 

IMGP9663

 

Check back on Thursday for the answer if you don’t get it—it’s a pretty cool vehicle.

MYSTARCOLLECTORCAR JUNE 6 “WHAT’S IT” WEDNESDAY—MORE FUN THAN A CROSSWORD PUZZLE

 

Today’s What’s It? Wednesday is typical because it’s a bit of a challenge so the first clue is a signal light.

 

This look at the hood might help.

MSCC MAY 30 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: A HEADLIGHT AND A GRILL—WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED?

 

Today’s MSCC “What’s It?” Wednesday clue is a headlight and part of a fender.

 

If that doesn’t lock it down for you then here’s the full grill.

MSCC MAY 23 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY: YOU GET AN ENGINE COMPARTMENT—TOO BAD THE HOOD IS MISSING

 

Last week’s “What’s It?” Wednesday was a little too easy so this week’s clues should take your game up—so the 1st clue is a look at the back end.

 

Maybe this shot of the engine compartment will help but the hood would have been a valuable clue.

MSCC MAY 2 “WHAT’S IT?” WEDNESDAY—IT’S A BLACK AND WHITE ISSUE

 

The best part about a “What’s It?” Wednesday is the artistic license because you can make a clue full color or black and white.
