    Ah! The first family car I remember as a toddler. A 1959 Plymouth Fury Station Wagon in Fire Engine Red! Dad called it, "the old, red bomb."

    Not the car in the video - I didn't watch - but that old Plymouth was... the bomb.

    Not a Commuter. Our family ride for several years was a Meteor Montcalm Wagon. The younger kids thought shotgun was riding in the rearward facing seat...

    Okay , it’s a muscle car relative, and the muscle car in question was introduced the same year as the wagon in the video.

    Hmm. Page 340 seems appropriate by association, although it wasn’t made available in the compact offering by the manufacturer until the following year. Last year of headrests being optional equipment in America.

    It isn’t a compact, but it got you to the manufacturer and 67 is correct. R/T engine ? No but you could be forgiven as this model infers through series designation.

    No, it was part of the R/T / Charger family and was the top wagon from the series.

    It’s a 67 Coronet 440 Wagon. Dash/headrests and exterior trim give it away. ;). That green thing looks as though it was the cockpit section of a 50’s car/plane thingie.

    The second one is one more than was manufactured. My guess is a Fairthorpe Electron Saloon ;)

    Oh come on now, take a look at this hum drum device and toss a name on it. Not from South America, Africa, Indian sub Continent nor is it Eastern Bloc.

    Blind guess, but based on the clue is it an NSU Wankel?

    No but this concept could really belt along with the conventional engine. ;)

    Hint - current GP driver’s surname is directly related to a major feature of the marque.
    Hint - it could be said all owners were Narcissists.
    Hint - my favourite hobby is gardening
