New Contest – And This One Is A Real Puzzle

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.

Ravensburger - The Car Boot Sale 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

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.”

    These are the best kind of puzzles. Lots to look at and enjoy.

  10. This puzzle would be great to give those owners whose cars are in the shop an opportunity to pass the time until they are on the road again.

  11. Great for those times when a grease-free afternoon is needed.

    Hunting the pieces of the puzzle might be easier than finding parts for our Sunbeam Talbot … but both enjoyable!

  13. We own 2 MGAs – a Roadster and a Coupe. Just love this puzzle and jigsaws are a hobby!

  14. Terry Schuller // April 17, 2016 at 5:53 pm //

    Looks like fun, I love jig saw puzzles. Where can I purchase one?

  15. English cars are always a puzzle. You have to figure out where to put all the parts that fall off.

    Just like Beaulieu.


  18. It is a puzzle to my friends why my 1961 E type is not restored after 49 years in my garage!

  19. I looked for you at Kiawah Concours, a good show! A number of us MOGSouth members attended. My wife and I are Ravensburger puzzle fanatics. We have quire a few. I didn’t know about the British Car series but will be on the look out for them. Would love to get started in this puzzle.
    Regards, Brian , Morgan Aero8

    • Sorry I missed you! I was in awe of the Morgans both at Kiawah and at Magnolia Plantation. If I had the money, I would be in real trouble. 😉 Good luck with the contest, these are really fun puzzles.

  20. Sorry to have missed The First and Last Real Sports Car at both Kiawah and Magnolia Plantation. Perhaps next year…
