Mopar Muscle's monthly Summit Trivia Challenge has ended, effective with our December, 2013 issue.
Come on in for the answers to the last three questions we brought you...and the last three winners...
As mentioned above, the Summit Trivia Challenge that appeared each month in the "Mopar Scene" section of Mopar Muscle Magazine has concluded.
We'd like to thank Summit Racing Equipment for their support of our monthly Trivia Challenge over the years, and we'd especially like to thank you Mopar historians who entered each month.
That includes all of you who entered our October, November and December, 2013 contests. Here are those questions. the correct answers, and the winners.
For October: What’s the difference between the ’68 Plymouth GTX trunk trim panel, and the one used on the ’68 Satellite, Sport Satellite and Road Runner? ANSWER: The GTX trunk trim panel is a die casting, while the other one is a stamping (and only the base Belvedere and non-Exterior-Decor-Group Road Runner models got the painted-steel-with-no-trim-panel trunk lid.) Larry Robinson of Tulsa, Oklahoma was the first one to send in the correct answer for October.
For November: On the 1969-’76 Mopar fender tag’s second line from the bottom, why doesn’t the code “C25” ever appear in the fourth block of digits from the tag’s left side? ANSWER: That fourth block of digits is the datecode, and “C25”= December 25, a date when Ma Mopar’s facilities were closed. (Something to do with that date being Christmas Day.). Joseph Glosek of Mesa, Arizona was the first one who got his correct entry for the November Summit Trivia Challenge in.
For our last Summit Trivia Challenge, which appeared in our December '13 issue: True or False: The Plymouth Road Runner and Dodge Super Bee both went on sale at the start of the 1968 model run. ANSWER: FALSE...The Super Bee was a mid-year (1968 ½) model that went on sale in February, while the Road Runner was in the ’68 Plymouth lineup from "day one" the previous September. Denny Simonson of Vancouver, Washington, was the first entrant with the correct answer to the last Summit Trivia Challenge question.
Thanks again to Summit...and to you!
