I stumbled upon this work in progress while investigating Corrigan’s Service Station in Brideghampton. I probably shouldn’t have lifted the tarp, but what fun would that be? Previous mystery rides have been way to easy for you. Hopefully this shot is a bit tougher. So, what do we have here? please weigh in after the jump and stay tuned for the full tour of Corrigan’s garage..

I’ll give you a hint…it was only sold on these shores for one year and needed to change its name as not to conflict with one of the General’s popular models. Weigh in below with a make and model for your free Man on the Move t-shirt.
This handsome little coupe blew by me on the freeway. Like one of those gun fights from the Wild West, I whipped out my 3G and fired off this picture fast as I could. The car looks and feels like a vintage European, possibly with an Italian body design (Zagato, Bertone, Pininfarina, etc). You know the drill – name that car and get a super cool Man on the Move t-shirt.
It’s not often we find ourselves unable to identify a vehicle. And as much as it hurts our car guy pride to admit it, we have no flippin clue what this cute little coupe is. The fussy styling cues, particularly the front and rear lights, feel pre WWII Japanese. Also notice where the hinges are positioned in the rear – that could mean there is a rumble seat below. The roof also appears to be of the clamp-on variety. Care to take a stab at the make and model? Test your car spotting skills after the jump…

It would have been great to bring you the exact make and model but this mystery ride is locked up tight and I don’t need a pissed off owner chasing me down the street with a 12 guage. I did manage to find a piece of the car cover that wasn’t being held down with a brick though – it revealed what appears to be a brand name or race team logo tattooed onto the side sill. Anyone recognize it? Either way, the plexiglass and abundance of scuffs reek of a kit that has seen its share of track time. Thanks to all those who weighed in.
We spotted this curvy sports car all covered up on the streets of LA. Any thoughts on the make and model?? Weigh in after the jump…

RE: what’s under the car cover. For those of you who said early 1960s Lincoln Continental hard top sedan, pat yourselves on the back. You didn’t actually think we would pull the cover off of a complete stranger’s vintage automobile did you? That’s how people get killed in this city.
