Last week's photo showed the front corner of Mercedes-Benz's largest sport utility vehicle, the GL. See the whole car along with this week's review.

Chosen randomly from the correct entries was the name of Ricky Albino , of Augusta, who wins a gift from the Marketing Department of The Augusta Chronicle.

Other readers identifying the vehicle were:

AIKEN: Bob Hardt

AUGUSTA: Gene Glowny and Anthony V. Esposito, the latter of whom who wrote: "The car pictured ... is a 2009 Mercedes-Benz GL Class. More specifically, it appears to be the GL320 BlueTEC model."

CUMMING, Ga.: Chris Rhodes, who wrote: "The M-B GL320 is built at Mercedes' SUV plant in Tuscaloosa, Ala. So, one could argue that it is a locally grown product."

EVANS: Jerry Paul

HEPHZIBAH: Jason Wright, who wrote: "Mercedes claims this is the world's cleanest diesel engine. Purchasing this car actually qualifies you for Alternative Motor Vehicle Tax Credit of $1,800. Still, at $59K it is a little rich for my budget."


For next week, let's go from a brand-new luxury SUV to the other end of the spectrum. Here's your clue for the car above: This photo was shot in 1959 for the debut of a car that just might have been a harbinger of turmoil evident in the auto industry today. Please tell us the make and model.

Call (706) 823-3419 or send an e-mail to glynn.moore@augustachronicle.com.

Please tell us your name (and spell it ) and telephone number and the city you live in.

You have until noon Wednesday to respond. A winner will be chosen randomly. Thank you.
