What is it?

The ILX seems to have stumped our readers. There were plenty of other guesses, including the Honda Accord, the Cherolet Cruze and the Mazda3.

Chosen randomly from the correct entries was the name of Wayne Wilke, of Evans, who wrote:

“The ILX is Acura’s entry-level car and it is based on the Honda Civic platform, but its suspension, tuning, interior materials and styling are different.

“That is a good thing since the leading consumer magazine, in the September issue, just panned the Civic in a ‘Five Popular Cars to Avoid’ article where they mentioned the 2012 Civic ‘suffers from a choppy ride, noisy cabin, vague steering and mediocre interior quality.’

“Expect the ILX to be a lot better.”

Wilke wins a prize from The Augusta Chronicle. Others identifying the car were:

AUGUSTA: Carolyn Ogles called the ILX a “premium small car with impressive standard items.” She added that it is built in Greensburg, Ind.

CUMMING, GA.: Chris Rhodes

EVANS: Jerry Paul

MARTINEZ: Jeff Miller and Jim Muraski

THIS WEEK’S CONTEST

In keeping with the spirit of this week’s article about baby boomers and vintage cars, we offer you this photograph and ask you to tell us What Is It?

We need you to tell us the make and model of this 1968 vehicle. For instance, you might say “Tucker Torpedo” (but you would be wrong).

If you know what it actually is, e-mail glynn.moore@augustachronicle.com or leave a message at (706) 823-3419.

Tell us your name and telephone number and the city you live in. It helps if you spell your name for us so we can include your response.

Noon Wednesday is your deadline. A winner will be chosen randomly. If you win, let us know when you’d like to pick up your prize.
