Quiz Whizzes

Quizmaster Paul Dean is taking the month off but will return in a future issue with another set of autos-themed brainteasers.

Last month's quiz, "OK, You Lead-Footed Car Buffs, Let's See You Race to the Mailbox," posed a bonus question: "At this year's Greater Los Angeles Auto Show, there were predictions of home runs for this truck. And when the Lincoln Blackwood sport-utility concept drove onto the dais, a real heavy hitter emerged. Who?"

The answer: Mark McGwire, the St. Louis Cardinals' record-setting home- run hitter.

Highway 1 commuter mugs are on their way to the 25 readers who beat the rest of the pack to the mailbox and submitted that correct answer.
