Looks as though Max just transgressed several boudaries with Bobby here. I have to give the Baconator credit though, he went from zero to Milford Megajerk in almost no time flat.

I’m sure there will be plenty of time for that to pan out over the next few weeks. In the meantime, I’d like to play one of our older games here at TWIM and try to guess the model for that car in panel one. I will have to throw up my hands however as that Kamm tail has me flummoxed.

  1. That has to be a 1975 Ford Granada.
    You may remember the Granada as Ford’s competition to the Cadillac Seville. (Get it? Seville and Granada are both cities in southern Spain, both known for their flamenco and remaining structures from the Ottoman Empire. Not sure what that had to do with cars though).

  2. Here’s a different picture of a Granada, from the same angle as in panel one of today’s Gil Thorp, looking exactly as the drawn car does: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Granada_(North_America)#mediaviewer/File:1977_Ford_Granada_coupe_2.jpg

  3. “Sorry Mr. Mack Swell dope fiend, no fish today. However, if you talk to my love interest Ishii, she might hook you up with a Midol or two.”

  4. Unhinged? Maybe Bacon DOES need medication…

    Haha, no, he’s just an idiot. After all, he is actively wanting to be more like Bobby Howry.

  5. Zoinks! A drug storyline? I’m flashing back to Cody Exner — and Kay Morgan’s sloppy joe’s during two-a-days.

  6. All the subtlety of Keith Moon at a Holiday Inn.

  7. A Granada wouldn’t have that triangular rear quarter window. My guess is another legendary Ford of the 1970s, a 1977 Mustang II hatchback.

  8. Whatever that car is, the driver must have to sit over the front wheels.

    But I admit I am surprised: I had assumed Bobby was going to be the principal a-hole of the winter. Kind of makes my head spin, thinking of the awful directions this plot could turn…

  9. Teenchy — you may not have looked at the rear angle pic of the Granada from comment #2, which clearly has the triangular rear quarter window: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Granada_(North_America)#mediaviewer/File:1977_Ford_Granada_coupe_2.jpg

  10. Nah, Moon, I’m sticking with Mustang II. Granada rear window is shaped more like an old front vent window. Plus no landau roof.

    Either way, That ’70s Ford would’ve rusted to powder in Milford long ago. They must not salt the roads there.

  11. Oooh, fight breaking out in the comments section! And here I was thinking it was a Citroen CX,

  12. Timbuys, can we do side bets on this one? I for one think the car is not one but two, welded together with the middle five feet missing.

  13. I wondered where that car went. We had a race car that looked like that. Our driver was not that skilled and at one point we had Fairmont, Granada and Thunderbird body panels on our car. The officials told us kindly not to bring it back.
