Larry Roscoe's "stab" at guessing that last week's vehicle was a 1960 Buick Invicta proved right.
He was among two other readers who guessed correctly, Gary Peterson and Tom Erickson.
Roscoe wrote that he couldn't have been off by more than a fender port or a piece of chrome.
Erickson wrote that he drove a car like this in a demolition derby in Aitkin. He said it was a rugged car and he even drove it home after the derby.

He has been participating in demolition derbies for the last 44 years.
Larry Goshey, Crosby, came close to correctly guessing. He guessed the vehicle was either an Invicta or Electra four-door hardtop. He said if this car had four portholes it would have been an Electra. Three portholes would make it either an Invicta or a LeSabre.
Other guesses included a 1959 Chevy Impala, a 1960 Buick Custom, a '58 or '59 Buick Invicta, a 1960 Buick four door and a '59 Buick Electra.
Jay Hoffman guessed the latter guess. He said his parents had one of these Electras with a huge engine. "It rode like you could not believe," he said.
Dave Ringstrom guessed this single-owner classic was a LeSabre because there were five times as many LeSabres built as Invictas.
He had the facts though. Both the LeSabre and Invicta were four door sedans, 1960 was the last year the Invicta was made.
This 1960 Buick Invicta was last week's Guess the Vehicle.
There were 55,000 LeSabres built and only 11,000 Invictas manufactured. The Invicta also was 100 pounds heavier and cost $600 less, $2,870.
Larry Olson, who guessed the vehicle was a 1960 Buick LeSabre Model 4419, said there were four engines available for this car. They were rated by their torque, not cubic inches. They were a 445 (401 cubic inches), 465 (425 cubic inches), 355 (300 cubic inches) and a 310 (also 300 cubic inches).
What '68 Pontiac car was named Bobcat?
This week's trivia question is "What 1968 Pontiac car was named a Bobcat?"
Last week's trivia question, "What is a 1969 Ford Mustang's wheelbase," generated a few responses. The answer was 108 inches.
Erickson wrote he had a '68 Mustang that was a "decent car."
Roscoe surfed the Internet to find out even more information. The wheelbase was shortened to 109 inches after the first few models and later shortened to 96.2 inches.
Hoffman guessed that the answer was 114 inches.
