While doing research for another GeekList, I pulled out some cards for the game Alibi. I had picked this up at a thrift store several months ago, but had never looked at it up close. I suddenly realized that the car on the cards was the very model I own! My car is a 1959 Volvo PV544, a model that is neither very common nor very popular. I am always delighted when I see one in a movie or in a magazine. I was of course pleasantly surprised when I found it in one of my games.

How about the rest of you? I know some of you own some cool cars. Do any of you own a vehicle that is featured in a game? Show us a pic of your car followed by the game piece that shows your particular model. This goes for any vehicle you own or use on a regular basis. Show me your car, motorcycle, train, boat, or anything else and the game it is in.

Here is my car, a 1959 Volvo PV544 from about 12 years ago.

Here is the same model Volvo in Alibi.

Looks like something from one of the magazines or possibly owners clubs. Nevertheless, there's a Land Rover Board Game.

I do like cars, I'm an avid Top Gear viewer. Although I know very little about them, don't even ask me how to repair one, and I'm not really into speed and sports cars. Classic British cars is my thing.

My car's not as old as yours Erniepaul, a 1976 Series III 88" Land Rover with mis-matched panels. The camo look was not intentional, just body panels from an old car, but I've got used to it now.

5. Board Game: Plymouth Drag Race Game [Average Rating:7.00 Unranked]

The 60's - muscle cars and drag racing! The second generation Barracuda was produced by Plymouth from 1967 - 1969. Three models of the A-body Barracuda were offered, the fastback, the notchback, and the convertible. Advertising of the day characterized the design as a combination of the better of two worlds: sporty european and yankee practicality.

In 1968 Plymouth offered the fastback with a hemi engine in a stripped down version built for drag racing. So much for yankee practicality! Drag racers Ronnie Sox and Buddy Martin had great success winning in the professional drag racing circuit running the Plymouth Barracuda and other Plymouth muscle cars. Because of this success, which demonstrated the engineering capabilities of Plymouth, racing became a big part of Plymouth's marketing. For the 1968 model year you could win a copy of the Plymouth Drag Racing Game by visiting your local Plymouth dealer and entering the Plymouth Sweepstakes.



According to the game instructions, "The next best thing to a real taste of the Quarter is the Plymouth Drag Racing Game. So, get ready for all the excitement that Sox & Martin experience on the strip. You've got the green light!" The game included components for racing the Plymouth GTX, Road Runner and Barracuda.



This game is a great collector's piece of automobilia. And my car, a 1969 Barracuda convertible (one of only 1,494 built), is almost in the game. Just missed it by 1 year!
