Last week’s winner was milwhcky. The correct location was Montreal.

As I mentioned last week, I’ve decided to add a twist to these contests. Instead of just being random locations, the locations I’ll be choosing from now on (including the one below) will be related to something in the news from the previous week. Here’s the first one, good luck!

Apart from a white van, all three cars in the photo are black, and look like they might be Porsches. Not sure if that’s a clue.

2. Lee spews:

@1
I didn’t notice that, but it might be a clue. In fact, cars in general are a clue for this.

3. dan robinson spews:

One of the cars is red.

4. dan robinson spews:

One of the cars is red.

I got it. This is Bret Michaels’ house.

5. Michael spews:

Sprawlville USA!

6. Lee spews:

@5
Well, you’re on the right track.

7. Roger Rabbit spews:

@3 Oh, I didn’t see the red car.

8. Michael spews:

Checkout all those attic vents.

I really have no idea how people find the places you put up, but it’s interesting how much you can tell about a place by these photos.

Down South – Georgia, Florida, Carolinas

10. Gman spews:

or out west – Arizona, Nevada. Warmer Climate. Concrete Aprons around the roadways typically occurs in warmer, rainy season areas.

But that ws not in the news so ….

14. mlc1us spews:

I tried to post the answer but it didn’t show up. Do comments go to an approval queue now?

From KIRO TV

Bowl Of Chili Saves Woman As Car Crashes Into Kent Home

The crash happened just after midnight on 144th Avenue Southeast at Southeast 282nd Place.

@13
That’s it! Not sure why it ate your link, but I was able to free the comment from the filter.

One of those houses belongs to a doctor who accepts chickens for medical care?

18. Lee spews:

And in case people are wondering…no, not every contest solution will be local, but I thought I’d start out with one to kick this off.

The house that got destroyed was the lighter colored one on the right side of the picture. My in-laws live walking distance from there and were able to check out the damage Thursday morning. My father-in-law thinks the dumbass who Darwin’ed himself was doing over 100.

19. mlc1us spews:

Thanks Lee. As you can see I tried more than once. Sorry for the duplicate posts. Feel free to nuke one.

20. Carl spews:

@13 and 16

Multiple links get caught in most spam filters.

21. SJ spews:

I like the local idea!

I also like the news idea.

Might be fun too to “locate” some people’s houses?

22. dan robinson spews:

Cheese on her chili saved her life. What a concept.
