That is the "Yankee Doodle" Roadster.

I had to resort to Google, but it was a tough search anyways...

I recognized the headlights right off the bat, and the fenders looked familiar, but still had trouble identifying the whole car.

I wasn't neccessarily going for hard.

Though I suspect most people will have a little challenge.

Modified Saab! I love the added aero, and the suicide door! Stock they were 2 strokes, and were great rally cars.

Larry, I'll go ahead and give it to ya.

It's a Saab 93 (1959? not sure on the year) and originally had a 3 cyl 2 stroke.



This one was modified to run at the Salt Flats and has the same motor I'm putting in my Corolla, a YZF-R1 motor. It set the current I/GALT record at 145+ mph.

OK! Here we go!

I'm thinking about a car that that has been built in 2 different countries that end in the same letter.
Production started in both places the same year. Production stopped in one of the country's some time ago!

In one of the country's, it was kind of over shadowed by it's sister in glamor.

In one of the country's, it's production stopped at a half year mark.

This kind of car has been in a famous movie with a VERY well known actor!

This car has done world wide rallies, and some road racing. Yet, at the same time; it COULD be a family car.

In one of these country's, it's cousin is described as a scene in outer space!


What is this car?

Bonus for 1st year of production, what 1/2 year production end in 1 place. what movie/actor, what cousin I'm referring to! what 2 country's??
