What Am I? Pull

Welcome back to What Am I?, DT's Monday morning puzzle that puts wits versus mitts, brain versus brawn, encyclopedic memory versus creative logic, your cousin Louie versus the Empire State Building -- it is an epic battle no matter how you slice it.  This week we feature a simple picture of a car part; your job is to identify the car it is from.

  2. Inconsistency of the stitching looks British. Leather quality and plastic handle looks American. Fact that there's no seam in the plastic suggests it's newer. Still stumped though, but not giving up.

    1. point of clarification.......does that handle serve to operate the latch (aka it moves) or is it fixed and it's just a pull?

    2. It looks like it's hard mounted from the back of the card to me, so how would you get the door card to pull the door closed? Drop the card down into a pair of slots?

  3. The stitching and leather quality looks like it is from a Subaru, but I don't believe they ever had a hard mounted plastic handle like that.

    1. Not a Subaru, but not an OE known for quality.

  4. The aforementioned inconsistencies in stitching what I perceive to be the poor quality of the Naugahyde remind me of those conversion vans from the 80's.

    1. i think it's a truck or older-school suv - nicer cars have much more molded interiors - then again, who does light blue anymore? - it's all beige or gray or brown or black out there - early 90's american truck-based suv - suburban?

    2. I channeled my inner K2 with this one...so don't be fooled by the color. Not a truck/SUV.

    4. It is funny how in the blue it REALLY looks like something from a 90s American car. Now...not so much.

  5. I think it's a TVR. Not sure the exact model, but one of the wedge cars. Like a 350i.

    3. I'm really surprised I like this car so much. I usually hate convertibles, but I could imagine myself driving this in Miami wearing a gold chain and playing 80's rock.
