Buckle Up, It’s Time For Another Car Haiku Quiz Featuring Our Actual Cars

Haikus 2 Top

Here at The Autopian, we love it when you send us tips either through our email line or through our Discord. It doesn’t have to be something groundbreaking like a leak of an upcoming car or a clue for Mack Hardigraw’s next taillight mystery, it can simply be a great story idea.

Today, our Discord had a brainwave: Why don’t we, the writers, make haikus for our cars and see if you can guess which car goes with which? Now, Jason’s played with car haikus before, so while the professional adults here were otherwise busy, we hatched a plan. Think you’ve been keeping track of our cars? Now’s the time to test yourself.

Fair warning: We’ve got ten haikus on the docket today, and not every writer had time to get a haiku or two written, so don’t expect every car in the collective fleet to be here. With that disclaimer out of the way, let’s begin.

1.
Had it since 18
Stolen and then returned home
Two carbs and no rad

2.
Once owned by Smokey
The bear, not Jackie Gleason
Lovely shade of green

Rednsudivider

3.
Cheers to Grant and Harm
As the organ notes come in
It’s time for breakfast

Rednsudivider

4.
A machine that is
just ultimate enough for
this simple driver

Rednsudivider

5.
Artful perfection
Yet oh so approachable
Magazines were right

Rednsudivider

6.
Born in Abingdon
Better known as a drop-top
But this one is a coupe

7.
Car you can shit in
Got me from LA to here
Now it’s just a house

Rednsudivider

8.
Transmission suspect
Silver, yet not valuable
Cursed decision

Rednsudivider

9.
Seemed fine at the time

Then I lived with the damn thing
A Toyota next

Rednsudivider

10.
Butch little Pike car
Less than a liter is fine
Keeps hitting those deer

I knew 8 or 9 referred to Matt’s car, just that both sounded valid for it.

Fun and fast lil coup
Has horsey in the logo
But no Ferrari

Slush box and turbo
As Japanese as they come
A hair dressers dream

Nitrogen and oil
The engine’s in there somewhere
But the design wow
