One of the requirements was a new (less than 6 months) vehicle, unmodified.

A little digging around here should bring up most of the other details. I'm too lazy to do the digging right now. http://www.cleanmpg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17691

I take it Guinness didn't know or didn't mind that the grille was blocked. I still call that a mod.

I wonder if the Taylors did that.

Not diminishing their efforts - they likely would have beat them without the block, just not as dramatically.
