Good morning, faithful readers of Oversteer and Internet spambots, and welcome to today's Monday Quiz -- your favorite weekly feature, wherein I post a tiny picture of some small portion of a car, and you quickly attempt to guess it before discovering it was already figured out by some weenie with even more time on his hands than you.

I sincerely thought last week's Monday Quiz would be challenging, because I posted a picture of a Ford Explorer taillight -- but the answer was actually the Explorer's lesser-known twin, the Mercury Mountaineer. This was a brilliant distraction, I thought, except for the fact that it was guessed in approximately 20 seconds by someone who clearly worked on the Mercury Mountaineer design team.

Monday Quiz has now gotten so competitive that I've received text messages from several of my friends informing me that they sit there reloading the page every Monday, just waiting for it to show up. So this week, I've decided to make it actually challenging by posting a really small bit of a car. I have no doubt that, like usual, you'll correctly guess what it is in 5 minutes.
