UPDATE: We have a winner! Mr Steve Wincze of the Connecticut MG Club has been drawn by random number. I have a feeling folks attending the Gathering By The Sea in June will see this puzzle up for grabs. Congratulations to Steve and thanks to all of those who entered. A new contest will appear on the site soon, so good luck.
Well here it is, the new contest. I told you that this one would be a puzzle, and it is! Yes, a true 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle produced by Ravensburger and title, “Car Boot”. A boot sale, of course, is basically a flea market held out of the boot of cars. So with this distinctly British puzzle, you will see all sorts of British cars, vans, trinkets and other memorabilia. It is honestly a feast for the eyes – although I won’t promise a speedy completion time.
Here is the box description, “In this 7th of the Best of British series, we’re transported to the imaginary village of Knotworth Bothrynwithe, where they are holding a Car Boot Sale. The place name, with its clever wordplay, gives you a big clue about what to expect from the scene – this certainly isn’t your run-of-the-mill car boot. Enjoy seeing Lord Duckhouse having to sell the family silver (and everything else) to make ends meet; would you really want a Rolecks watch or Goochi perfume, and be very careful what you buy from Kev’s army surplus. The scene is simply packed with colourful details and visual “gags”, and it’s sure to get you smiling. Includes in box leaflet with additional puzzle picture for reference and artist’s biography.”
• High quality 1000 piece puzzle
• Bright, colourful and hilarious scene by popular British artist Geoff Tristram
• Can you find all the visual gags and wordplay hidden within this really detailed scene?
• A great puzzle for fans of British humour, cartoon comedy or car boot sales!
• Puzzle measures 69.9 x 49.7cm when complete. Made from strong premium grade cardboard, with linen finish print to minimise glare on puzzle image
