That was whack....i did not like it...infact i thought it was the worst teaser af all

Ignore the previous comment. I thought it was very original, and very good.

Very original! liked it. keep up the good work!

Very tricky....

i didnt get it but im not surprised drussel did lol! hi drussel remember me ive been following u

not sooo bad, I have probably submitted worse myself[haha]

good one, didn't get it!

Hey! That's pretty nifty! Good teaser, even though I know absolutely nothing about cars and I didn't get it.

I don't know much about cars, and I HATE roman numerals, for some reason I can never get them right. It's a great teaser, though.

same as dolphingurl

i knew had to do with roman numerals so im sure if i knew roman numerals i could have got it!

i really am not going get a puzzle right any time soon.

i really am not going get a puzzle right any time soon.

Good one!

It is also a palindrome!

It was O.K. if you know Roman numerals, but how many people do? Therefore it was a puzzle for a few and not for the many others of us.

I really liked it. Though I no longer drive, when I did, I always owned Japanese cars (and a Japanese bike), so thought of all the 5 letter cars I could before trying to figure out how the numbers fit. As soon as I was trying to fit civic in, the Roman Numeral thing jumped right out. We learned Roman Numerals in school, and though that was many many moons ago. I would have thought it was still part of the ciriculaum.

I guess my brain was like the teaser. Old and tired. I didn't get it. Have a great weekend friends( especially G & T)

Oh, I thought it was the Hummuh Palindrome. I wasn't thinking Roman numerals but I find them fascinating. (Once you know how to use them) Have a great weekend, friends

Took me a while, but then it hit me. Well done and thanks for posting.

I needed the hint on this one. Bit of a groaner though!

It's scary to think Roman numerals aren't being taught any more! That arrangement of numbers jumped right out at me as Rom. num's, and I got it upon reading it, so for me it was fun and super-easy!

When did they stop teaching Roman numerals as at least a small part of elementary school arithmetic? No wonder American students fall towards the bottom of the rankings when it comes to math proficiency. Also, I suspect that those who don't like a Teaser and who make comments such as, "... the worst Teaser af (sic) all," are precisely those who haven't been clever enough to solve the Teaser in question.

I'll never get this even if I live to C!!!

I needed the hint on this one. Very good teaser, I love it.

Have a great week-end G & K.
