USED CARS
The answer to each of these clues is an American automobile model that is no longer in production. We’ve given you the brand name and the years the model was in production.

2: Mercury ___ (1960-69, 1971-77). This reindeer is mentioned by name after Prancer and Vixen in “A Visit from St. Nicholas” aka “The Night Before Christmas”.

4: AMC ___ (1968-74). Uwe Hohn threw one of these a world record 104.80 meters at a track and field competition in Germany.

6: Dodge ___ (1976-80). This Rocky Mountain resort town’s annual “Ideas Festival” has attracted some of the biggest names in politics, business, and the arts.

8: Buick ___ (1953–54, 1961–72, 1975–98). Percy Bysshe Shelley’s poem to this creature begins, “Hail to thee, blithe Spirit!”

10: Cadillac ___ (1982-88). This motion picture, adapted from the Edna Ferber novel of the same name, won three Academy Awards at the 1931 ceremony.

GETTING TO KEVIN BACON

3: John Belushi and Tim Matheson both have Bacon number 1 because they starred in this raunchy 1978 film, Bacon's first.

6: One way to link Alex Trebek to Kevin Bacon: Trebek played himself in The Bucket List with this Oscar-nominated star of A Few Good Men.

9: Among those appearing with Bacon in 1991's JFK is this actor who played a New York lawyer defending an Alabama murder case in a 1992 film.

12: In Apollo 13, Bacon's Jack Swigert lifted off with Jim Lovell (played by Tom Hanks) and Fred Haise, played by this actor who appeared in Titanic.

15: Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell joined Bacon in this 2011, comedy, film.
