Thursday Twister: Forward Hinged Hood Roundup

Another week, another competition. Last week, you guys broke the internet with a Kim Kardashian rear-end sized list of cars equipped with factory pop-up headlamps.  384 comments later and the commenting images were broken, and then a rowdy group of readers continued the contest on another page.  It was chaos, madness, anarchy, and this sort of behavior is...well...rewarded?  Today, you are going to list all of the cars that came equipped with factory forward hinged hoods.  I will start.


The Giugiaro designed Isuzu Impulse is one of those funky hinged classics with a hood that will never fly up and obscure your view on the freeway.  Forward hinged hoods are great for reaching stuff in the back of the engine bay (or for ridiculously backwards installed Saab engines) but for the most part they are completely inconvenient for any normal maintenance on cars, which is why they are just about extinct.  Your job, should you choose to accept it, is to name all of the cars there were available as such from the OEM.

 Rules:

1. Only one car per comment (be sure to hit the refresh button on your browser before you post in case someone else has posted since you loaded the page).  Do not nest the replies, just reply to the main post -- if you reply to someone elses comment it should be in reference to his comment and not a pop-up headlight submission.

2. You can post again, but only after someone else posts another car.  (We all know why this rule is in place...).

3. The contest will end at a pre-determined (but un-disclosed) time (could be a minute, could be a month) -- and as soon as I determine a winner from the last quiz, this quiz will also get a winner...a prize...perhaps a some free advice or a deed to a bridge...

4. One submission per generation of car.






5. Each car must be a running/driving car (no clay model prototypes) and at least two must have been built of that particular car (no one offs). 


6. No anonymous submissions -- pick a name with the Name/URL dropdown.

Ready....Set...Start!

  54. Lots of various BMW models picked, but pretty much ALL postwar front-engine BMWs prior to the E28/E30 including E3,E9,E12,E23,E24, etc.

    All the pre-9000 Saabs including the 92, 93, 95/96 in bullnose and V4-nose form.

    All the postwar Triumphs from TR2-TR8, and I think the Herald, the Vitesse, the Dolomite, and probably others.

    1. All these nice pics of Alfas with their hoods open because the engines are pretty, or because there's some other reason you need to routinely - perhaps more than routinely - open the hood?

    2. Funny you mention that. It's been a bit challenging to find them with the hoods open. I couldn't find one for the Berlina. Of all Alfa's you'd think there would be a few Berlinas with their hoods open. But maybe that only happened when they were daily drivers, and that was before Al Gore invented the interwebs.

  85. Hey - I didn't think I needed to spell this out, but mid/rear engined cars with front hinged hoods don't count. If you find a mid/rear engined car with a REAR engined hood, it could be considered part of the bonus culture...but...mostly I'm looking for front-hoods that are front-hinged.

    2. May I make a suggestion? You guys should maybe play these games/challenges yourselves before posting them. That might bring up some of the details that need to be specified from the start. There are other posts that are honest attempts to participate that also most likely don't meet your new criteria. The commercial trucks, for example.

      I was thinking that it would have been a much shorter challenge if you'd chosen side-opening hoods. Maybe next time, huh?

      Delete
    3. Have you ever thought that perhaps DT is the beta test of the game?

      Seriously, K2MC, if I had time, I would do a dry run, but I'm too busy trying to come up with ways to make fun of French stuff.

      As far as the hoodedness -- most mid-engined cars have forward hinged hoods, so listing them seems easy, perhaps I should have said "end" hinged hoods. I do appreciate your willingness to run in the grey area of the rules, and I don't think I need to point out that one of the rules was specifically designed with you in mind BEFORE the first contest last week....so logically you'd expect more of the same.

      Keep up the good work, and I'll let you know when my neighbors cat coughs up the prize for the contest winners.

      -Vince "Worst Contest Creator Ever"

    4. Ooh, you got me. Sort of a blue pill/red pill thang, eh? It's all good...me b*tching and moaning over the stupid stuff also digs up stuff for the future, hopefully. Let's call it a "learning experience". Wow that sounded conceited as I wrote it...

      I'm still waiting to find out who won the last contest, hairball prize or no. You never know, there could be gold in them thar feline.

      You are NOT the worst contest creator ever. FAR FROM IT! Never, ever say that again or I'll send my ninjas after you. They may, in fact, already be there. And you've made a fatal error when you invited me to keep up the good work!

    5. To be fair, way up the page, both Hunsbloger and I gently suggested that mid- & rear-engined cars weren't following the spirit of the contest. Fair warning!

      Including Vince there are 5 of us who could be considered moderators here...the other two being Kaibeezy & PhiLOL. We know Vince all too well and take over for him periodically. There are many instances when he's too busy lying on his back upgrading 60-year-old cars to rack & pinion steering systems to keep tabs on every post, so the rest of us step in to keep the site going.
