Autotrivia quiz – Friday October 19 – October 25, 2012


Last week, I asked you to look at the list of the supposed 10 best looking cars of all time.  It came out of America, so they can be excused for the inclusion of a couple of Yankee cars.  The list was:

1. 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300SL

2. 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California

3. 1963 Chevrolet Corvette

4. 1964 Aston Martin DB5

5. 1965 Jaguar E-Type

6. 1966 Ford GT40

7. 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4

8. 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T

9. 1971 Lamborghini Miura SV

10. 1973 Porsche Carrera RS

Muscles but not good looking. Muscles but not good looking.

The Quiz question was which one of the marques in the list used the hexagram?  It was the used by the Dodge Brothers.  The hexagram used was not the star of David, and the Dodge brothers were not Jewish.  They also came from a rich family and did not borrow the capital to start the business from Jewish financiers!

So to this week.  What classic racing car had a tapered, hollow beam axle at the front?  Clue: painted blue.
