An Item from the Automotive MIA Files

The Puzzler

TOM: I got the answer, because I was sitting staring at it in our very office. I was staring at a photograph of a beautiful car-- my 1963 Dodge Dart.

RAY: And it had them, at least had one of them that we could see.
What it had were chrome bumpers, and cars don't have chrome bumpers anymore. Some trucks have chrome bumpers, as do some SUVs, but cars don't have them anymore.

TOM: You can't get a chrome bumper. Excellent puzzler!

RAY: So who's our winner?

TOM: Our winner this week is Alice Yayman from Pittsboro, North Carolina, and for having her answer selected at random from among all the correct answers that we got, Alice gets from us the 26 dollar gift certificate to the Shameless Commerce Division at, with which she can pick up a stainless steel Car Talk thermos, which says on it, "Pure Massachusetts Crude." Now that summer's coming, it's perfect for that 30-weight summer iced coffee.
