Weekly Fun Question for 9-03-2011
Good Day:

The Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) is an exercise to give "General" Members the opportunity to test their knowledge on information relative to the '71 - '73 Mustangs. It is also designed to allow the same members the chance to have a nice #1 Icon added to their profile when they are the FIRST to provide the desired response. During normal "contests, a general member will have his/her membership (a $25.00 value) paid for a VIP subscription after "winning" on three (3) separate occasions. In honor of "Labor Day", this week's General Member will earned an AUTOMATIC subscription to the VIP Forum!

Please note when you respond to this thread, you will not see your "answer" as the thread is designed to show the responses at the end of the current contest (usually at approximately 7:00 P.M. {CST}) the following Monday when the thread is transferred to the "Archives" Forum. So, even though there may have been a number of replies to the question, those replies may not necessarily be correct. Also, please keep in mind that in order for responses to "count" they must be posted up to this thread. PM to me will not do itSmile.

[/b] Today's contest will end at approximately 7:00 P.M. on Monday, September 5, 2011.

While VIP members can also "play", their reward is "bragging rights" amongst their peers on the VIP Forum. General members are NOT competing against VIP members in this exercise. VIP members have their very own periodic "contest" which has an even more substantive award.

Also, please keep in mind that ANY General Member can always sign up for VIP Membership (which helps with the administration of the Site) by paying the $25.00 subscription feeSmile!


The problem for this week is once again a Multiple Choice one. Please identify the paragraph below which is [size=large][b]correct in its entirety:
[/b]

A. The 1973 Mustang had the most units (for the 1971-1973 Mustang production period) built with vinyl roof, tilt steering wheels and locking rear ends.

B. The 1972 Mustang had the most units (for the 1971 - 1973 Mustang production period) sold as rental cars; sold with dual racing mirrors; and sold with Magnum 500 wheels.

C. The 1971 Mustang had the most units (for the 1971 - 1973 Mustang production period) built with the "Instrumentation Group"; built as "Show Units"; and sold for the specific model year in comparison to 1972 and 1973.

D. None of the above!

Good Luck!!
The desired response is actually "C" as it is the only statement that is true in its entirety.

"A" is INCORRECT as the 1973 Mustangs production was not the highest for locking rear axles during the '71 - '73 production period. The numbers were:

1971 - 9,743 Units with locking rear axles
1972 - 5,774 Units with locking rear axles
1973 - 6,995 Units with locking rear axles

"B" is INCORRECT as the 1972 Mustangs production was not the highest for rental car units during the '71 - '73 production period. The numbers were:

1971 - 4,706 Rental Units
1972 - 2,330 Rental Units
1973 - 2,332 Rental Units

I think I will go with "A" since I know it was the biggest selling year for the Grandé. Apart from that it is a guess

We do have a winner from the "General Membership" in the person of one of our newest Members - - rvrtrash!! You did "Good", Steve and will now have your subscription paid for membership on the VIP Forum.

The desired response is actually "C" as it is the only statement that is true in its entirety.

"A" is INCORRECT as the 1973 Mustangs production was not the highest for locking rear axles during the '71 - '73 production period. The numbers were:

1971 - 9,743 Units with locking rear axles
1972 - 5,774 Units with locking rear axles
1973 - 6,995 Units with locking rear axles

"B" is INCORRECT as the 1972 Mustangs production was not the highest for rental car units during the '71 - '73 production period. The numbers were:

1971 - 4,706 Rental Units
1972 - 2,330 Rental Units
1973 - 2,332 Rental Units

It is also noted that markmel is again "on the boards" from the VIP Forum in that he was the first member from the VIP ranks to respond with the correct answer. With that, he once again earns "bragging rights" amongst his peers on the VIP Forum.

Congratulations to both Steve and Mark!
