Trivia Time: Monty Burns' Machine

April 10, 2008

This car rivaled the finest Duesenbergs and Cadillacs of its day. Based on an Indy car, it was the car that hustled across country in a noteworthy, record-setting drive that inspired a few movies.

It was a status symbol for rich drivers until the Depression. A later revival of the car proved disastrous to its reputation, but the Sultan of Brunei got suckered into owning one.

Other, less real owners of the car included a character in television's Green Acres, and that slimy scion of Springfield, Montgomery Burns.

What's the car? Tell us your guess in a comment below and we'll post the correct answer soon.
