Snow-bound Mercedes SL

This snow-bound Mercedes-Benz SL is a little too easy to identify.

The snow came later than it usually does here around Consumer Guide’s suburban Chicago headquarters. However, when it did come, it came with impact, dumping 6-8 inches around the area in a relatively short period of time. With snow comes snow-covered vehicles, some of which may be difficult to identify under all the badge- and shape-obscuring white stuff. Here we have eight liberally coated vehicles for you to identify. A couple of the cars are pretty easy, but a few should take you a least a moment to ID.

1984 AMC Eagle

Do you remember how much this car cost?

 

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one 1984 U.S. dollar is worth $2.26 in 2015 money. Such is the impact of inflation on currency, and why we shouldn’t keep our money in the freezer wrapped in foil.

Snow-covered Trofeo

1. Can you identify this snow-bound coupe? One clue: Hamtramck.

Several days after what Chicago weathercasters have dubbed the fifth- or sixth-worst snowstorm in city history, the Consumer Guide® staff has made note of a surprising number of vehicles still buried under hardening layers of the white stuff.

Which is longer?

Can you tell which of these vehicles is longer?

Based on reader comments, we made our first “Which Cars are Longer?” quiz a little too easy. This one is tougher. Tougher, because the pairs of cars presented below are a little more closely matched in length than those in the first quiz. If you haven’t taken the first quiz yet, go ahead and do so now. As always, let us know how you do.

Which is the longest car?

Can you tell which of these vehicles is longer? 

No less a luminary than Mark Twain once noted, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” Yet, despite Mr. Clemens’ call for deeper consideration of the things we appreciate, Americans have always put a premium on size. We like our TVs, BBQ grilles, and fountain beverages extra large, and, based on the popularity of Kim Kardashian, we tend to prefer select elements of our popular icons on the generous side as well.
