I have been remiss. Did you remiss me?

Rare license plate surround from the defunct Brooks Cadillac of sunny Scottsdale is just one of the items to be found at the Secret Internet Stuff Sale.

Apologies for not posting for some time -- I've been tied up accumulating cool stuff (some, but at all, car-related). Now, though, it's time to pass along these treasures. Check them out at the Secret Internet Stuff Sale. (The secret password is: Secret Password.)

Hint: It's a hybrid

But what particular brand of hybrid? If you've driven any of these dual moto-mobiles, you know they go in for these power-goes-here, power-goes-there dash displays. And this one belongs to a:

  • 2005 Ford Escape Hybrid

  • 2008 Nissan Altima Hybrid

  • 2008 Saturn Vue Hybrid

The Day the Earth Tilted 45 Degrees

Most other people would have panicked and grabbed for the nearest tree, but not Hedley Gasket, Auto Photographer. When the world went suddenly askew (was that a split infinitive, I askew?), your faithful photog just kept squeezing the shutter button. The earth regained its equilibrium soon thereafter, and all I have to remember that strange moment is this strange picture, the subject of which being a (you tell me):

Meanwhile, back at the Mustang boneyard

Yes, Namers, it's been a while. But the good news is that I'm back with more photos of cars for you to so eagerly identify. Before we get to them, however, let's examine the NAME THAT CAR! signature vehicle, which I'm sure you can put year, make and model to:
  • 1968 Mustang Fastback

  • 1967 Mustang GT

  • 1968 Mustang California Special

Say it ain't snow

Enough with the e-mails, not to mention the phone calls, telegrams and telepathic messages (and how you got those last ones past my Reynolds Wrap firewall, I'll never know). Here, Namers, is a new challenge for you to identify.
  • 2005 BMW 6-Series

  • 2006 Chrysler 300

  • 2006 Buick Lucerne

Yellow, yes. Fast? That too

At Haus Gasket, the rule has always been: Bring home not a yellow car unless very fast it is! (Talking like Yoda is another source of constant mirth at Haus Gasket.)
Fortunately, the yellow car you see here, with 420-h.p. V-8 engine, proved to be extremely fast.
But what, besides yellow, is it, exactly?
  • 2006 Audi S6

  • 2006 Audi RS4

  • 2006 Audi A4 Quattro

  • 2006 Audi A8

Found in a Mustang boneyard

I came across this in a junkyard -- well, not really, a junkyard so much as a farmer's collection of old rusting cars that aspired to be a junkyard -- that included at least three Mustangs, and maybe more, given the unrecognizable (even to me!) state of some of the resident autos. But every junkyard and even every wannabe junkyard must boast at least one Mustang, since Ford has built some two zillion of them since introducing its ponycar in 1964. Two zillion, by the way, is an approximation -- if you can supply the actual number, or even something close, say within a couple of hundred thousand, I'll happily print it here.
Can't supply the number? Bet you can supply the year and model of the Mustang you see here. Choose from the list and provide your answer in the Comments.
  • 1971 Ford Mustang Grande.

  • 1974 Ford Mustang II Notchback

  • 1968 Ford Mustang GT

  • 1969 Ford Mustang Hardtop
