This is actually the best picture we have of our robot, taken by me blindly out the back of a car rushing to make our shipping.

heres your little challenge, the reward is my respect:

1) Just try and guess what we do :) it's not really that hard, but funny to think about at first since you really cant see very much.

2) Name the car this was taken in, if anyone gets this I think i'll die laughing since you can see only the backwindow and part of a seat. Bonus points for the make/model of the cars behind us, the route number we were on, and how late we were running.


Just thought that my team needed a presence here, and with lack of a better picture decided to see if anyone reconized the car.

Oh if your stumped you can take a look at this picture for help:

If you feel like cheating you can take a look at our robot in various stages of construction at http://www.startateam.com/639
but that just takes the fun out of it.

This has been my first thread started!

The robot is a double goal grabber. The car you are in is a Chrysler Sebring convertible. The car behind you is an older Honda Accord and behind that is a Dodge Neon. You are about 10min late.

Yes its a duouble goal grabber, what else can we do?
No its not a Chrysler
No the car behind us isn't a Honda Accord (wrong side of the world)
I really don't know what the car behind that one is... interesting :)
We were more then 10 mins late.

Judging from the way the Cylinders are pointing you have air brakes. that either puts your frame on the ground or some sticky stuff.
The car you are in a Chevy Nova?

No, ITS NOT A NOVA!!! :)

Air brakes? Why would we want to stop when we dont have to?

And i still want to know how you knew what route that was,

Your Car : Chevy Camaro Mid-Late 90's

Car Behind You : Early-Mid 80's Mercedes

Car Behind That : Late 90's Ford Lumina

I have no idea about cars, but maybe the white car behind you is an old BMW. Just a guess though.
Have fun with your 'bot and good luck at the competitions!

Okay...white car changing lanes...definately an Audi...my guess is an A4, and while i'd like to think that a robot would not fit into the backseat of a camaro, i have no choice to believe that it is...judging solely by the front seats, the rear break light on the hatch, and the hatch itself..my guess would be mid 80's camaro...z28...and the car behind...probably a mid-late 80's nissan

I'm impressed.

The car behind you is definitely an older ('82? '83?) BMW

haha you guys are good, it is a camaro- not sure the exact date, and no this robot could not fit in the back seat (i cant fit in the back seat) its on top of the backseat (it folds down).

Yeah, its cayuga in the background.

Im still waiting to hear what the car behind us is, that was another team member trying to keep up.

Greg, the car in back of you is a late model audi, and the other car is a late model Ford Escort wagon/sedan.

Incase your wondering look at the tailpipe for a explanation of the filename.

Ahhhh a WAsaabeeee

I say the white car is a Ford Tempo

I can't see a spoiler on the car and it has a distinct curve on the rear window which would leave me thinking of a fastback and the seats with integrated/tall headrests

No CLUE!

Your robot is a two goal grabber, the two "hands" slide vertically between the goal posts and then turn 90 degrees to lock into two posts.

The car with it's drivers side signal on (good driver!) is a Mercury Sable or a Cougar 4 door coupe license plate # 417-PDQ. There are two people in that car,

Ok, that license plate comment was a far stretch!! LOL






Ooh Ooh one more tiny detail I noticed, If you are on the red alliance during your first match, you won't have to change your light.

Regionals are over, good time to update this thread with some visable pictures of 639's robot :)

You can't tell from still pictures, but we are pushing that robot like it's not there:
http://www.startateam.com/639/pics/CANAD~12.JPG

We handle 2 goals:

http://www.startateam.com/639/pics/CANAD~17.JPG

Quick, death-grip (takes .5 seconds [will be lower by nats, .25 magbe] to engage completely):

http://www.startateam.com/639/pics/2002_goal_grabber_8.jpg

gotta get one of our wheels in there ;)

I will soon post a link to a video of us winning the semi's (at the canadian regional) by pushing team 188 from their goal scoring zone to our goal zone, while they firmly grasp 2 goals. WEEEEEE thats power.

Ohh, Woburn won't be happy then (team 188)....Actually they would...lol

My team (783) were at the CR's as well...Once I saw that 639 was Code Red, I knew i remembered you guys.

As for that white car it almost looks like it could be a Toyota Avalon, altho it might be a bit small for that...The avalon definately has a look similar to that.

Good job at the CR's! Hope to see you guys up here again next year!

Judging by the first picture alone, the car directly behind the Camaro is a Saab 900, according to its grill/headlight configuration with the large headlights and the three-opening grill. There's no doubt in my mind that the vehicle changing lanes is a Ford Tempo, and I ruled out its Mercury clone due to the unlit grill. I'll now look at the 2nd pic for clarification.

Okay, so it's a Saab 9000, sue me why don't ya. BTW, nice rust details over the chromed potmetal window surrounds.
