    Matracien at Alpiniste's DIFFERENT 26 questions

    OK, the following questions ( one per week ) came out of a long drive back from the Classic Car Show in the NEC in a car of petrolheads.

    So week 1 ......

    Starting with A, give me 26 car MAKES.
    No posting until the letter before has been given.
    If you have a list but don't know one, then your guess stops at that letter.

    Just for fun ( and some of the later ones get hard )

    X will remain X, I checked with current Chinese manufacturers, but nothing. I drive a Xantia, but that's against the rules

    Sorry Falcon, you lose some of these as you've given MODEL names eg MAZDA Xedos.

    Gordon Keeble was an intersting one.
    Is 'Checker' the New York cab ? Are they a manufactuer ? or just a builder and painter.

    AND their is still the elusive X - which is out there......

    Xedos is like lexus to toyota and lincoln to ford so you probly should discount them as well...
    Yup cheaker the new york cab they built their own cars they even used their own side valve engine till about the 60s when they used a chevrolet OHV engine and offerd a v8 option as well.
    gordan keeble was a nice shortlived chevrolet powerd car its was a great design too space frames and other such advancments and good for 135 mph (for those not in the know)
