What Am I? Sunripe

Welcome to another episode of DT's cure for the post Super Bowl blues -- What Am I?  It will be another 7 months before anything worth watching is back on the Sunday lineup, so spend that time staring at this photo and trying to guess the make/model.

  1. i swear that's a Saab - pure gut reaction - shape of the opening, curve of the windshield

    1. My gut agrees with your gut, though I think our guts are wrong.

    2. Our guts are singing in harmony here.

      It looks much like a 99/900 sunroof, both because of the size and the chrome-strip-in-rubber windshield moulding.

      Two elements working against that: the windshield looks a little flat for a Saab (but that could be the lens) and the site poobahs probably recognize our first reaction to almost anything is going to be 'Saab!'

    3. Don't forget Golde.

      The sunroof on my Volvo 242 looks identical from this angle.

  9. BMW 5-Series E28....?

    Gotta be a sedan as coupe sunroofs are usually more rearward.

  14. Late 80s 5 series wagon....I never thought I would want to see a finish on a Prius be flatter so I could see a reflection better.

  15. The Saab guesses are good ones, if indeed it is some flavor of e28, as glass Saab 900 sunroofs have long been an upgrade for e28's....the sizes are almost identical.
