Obviously another obscure bit of triva! I'll offer a few hints. The athletic contest referred to was a CFL game, but not between two CFL franchises, and the award the Most Outstanding Player received was a car. What kind of a car do you think it was? C'mon TR guys.......

Canadian Football League, similar to our NFL but they, like most Canadians, play longer! EH? Where's Mr. Creswick on this one?

Mr. Creswick has no use for the CFL - it's about as exciting as watching paint dry! Sorry if I've stepped on some CFL fans toes, but I just don't like the game.....strangely, though, I do watch NCAA football.
..........all of which doesn't answer the original trivia question.

C'mon, all you have to do is name the car. It was the early 60's.

My first thought was Triumph Herald.

Herald is a fine example of Michelotti styling. He also designed this truck cab:

Actually what I found was a TR3, but I bet in '63 they gave a TR4 for the TRIUMPH AWARD. Carl, you have won! Next Question ......?

I know the answer - the norse/german reference made it too easy - I just wanted to let someone else have a crack first.
As a clue, they started around 1920, stopped sometime in the 60s when they were taken over, and the cars aren't that common.

Don't think so.

No.

I thought this was going to be too easy. Is it time for a clue?
