What Am I? Wheelie Easy

Welcome to another edition of DT's cure for the Monday morning blues -- What Am I?  In this better than a vegan Thanksgiving dinner game we find a random picture of a car and you get to guess what it is.  Last week's puzzle was a picture of a camouflaged Jaguar XF that was solved quickly by sharp eyed readers, but the discussion went on for a while. This week it is time to get back to basics, just a close up of a rear wheel.  Just what am I anyway?

Update:  As pointed out by several readers below,  this is a 1967 Mercury Comet Cyclone GT offered here on eBay.

See a good car for the game of What Am I?  Send them here:


  1. 1966 Fairlane GT(A)

  2. Yeah, '66-67 Fairlane, what looks to be a 14in American Torq-Thrust D wheel with painted spokes, BFG TA rim protector.

  3. Dang! Beat me to it!

    1. I suppose if you drove a Comet these days you'd have to have a little thing that looks like an ESA space probe bouncing back and forth in your rear window.

  5. 7H15S512933 '67 Comet Cyclone.

    1. Someone has too much time on his hands.

    2. You determined the correct model, I just searched ebay. It was I think the 2nd listing that came up.

      Although... yes I do in fact have way too much time on my hands.

    3. Good work gents! It is indeed a Comet Cyclone.
