Thursday Twister: Twistception

For this week's Thursday Twister, I'm not going to ask you to identify cars that had a particular feature or favorite such-in-such, instead I am asking you to come up with future Twister quiz ideas.  How about that for a twist?


You've seen it here first folks -- suggest future Thursday Twister features.

  1. Good timing, as I had a great idea I wanted to suggest: Car editions with tie-ins to things that are not automotive related. It could just be fashion editions like the Levi's Jeep you ran recently, or possibly other odd branded tie-ins as well.

  2. Identify the concept car with the production car.

    1. I was going to suggest concepts versions of production cars that never hit showrooms or were available in limited quantities, excluding homologations (a.k.a. AMC diesel eagle)

  4. How about car companies that make other things besides cars?

    1. Virtually every single car company makes things besides cars...it would be more of a trivia sessions.

      E.g. Subaru makes generators, Toyota makes forklifts, etc...

  5. Either: a) Cars sold under one name in the US where the exact same platform is sold elsewhere under a different name or brand e.g. Honda Fit/Jazz, Nissan Primera/Infiniti G20.

    Or: b) Cars sold under the same name in the US and elsewhere but the underlying car is a different platform e.g. the four different Accords sold around the world.

    4 - 2002

    5 - XR4Ti

    6 - Rabbit

    7 - Matador

    5. or put a twist on your idea....last letter of first car is the first letter of the second car & so on....
      Dart, Torino, Omni, Intrepid, Dakota, ....(wow, thats alot of Dodge)... Aztek, K-car, Ridgeline,

      Delete
    6. or to make it a little harder, the last 2 letters:

      omni > nitro > roadmaster (the answer is always roadmaster ;) > ercoupe (wait, that's a plane) > pe... pe... hmmm

      Delete
  8. Generations of cars discontinued/advanced in the states that are still in production elsewhere

  9. For once I got here early enough to have the right answer. A 2015 Buick Regal(and every car that looks like it).

    Given that every single car looks 98.5% like all other cars (Idea for new Velocity show - drive freeways and have contestant name the mid-size sedan only from the rear). Can't be done.

    This picture falls into the "all of the above" answer category.
