My killer was catching all those funny things and then hitting the wrong thing on those Chevys. Doh!

finally gave in and did it. 69%. Not bad for a guy born in 1973.
I got the one with the ornaments all right. The one with the Henry J and Kaiser I got all wrong, which surprised me. On several, I KNEW 2 and guessed 2 and almost always guessed wrong. Oh well.

I got 100% but that's only because I think I once owned all of those cars
Actually I had to guess on 3 or 4 and got lucky.

Okay, so nobody got #1178 Who Am I # 1178
and so I'll tell you it was George Keller, who made the Keller car.

Okay, now I'm really going to get tough:
I was the only Ford Co. car (or at least the only one Shiftright remembers) that used a GM carburetor!!
Who Am I?
hints: 4-barrel / big block

I'd guess Lincoln, but couldn't guess the year.

I'm an American luxury brand that used GM's Hydra-matic transmission for five years. Who am I, and in which model years did I offer Hydra-Matic?

I assume you meant in a non GM brand?
How about a 1949-1953 Lincoln?

I'll guess the 1971 Mustang 429 CJ with a Rochester Quadrajet 4bbl. Only reason that rings a bell is because I had a '71 Mustang 302 V8 in high school. I don't know if any other models came with that engine/carb combo. My ex-girlfriend's father had an original 1970 Torino Cobra 429 and he said that the Holley carb on that engine was original equipment.

Didn't T-Birds use them for a few years?
