Meet The ‘Guess The Car’ Champ: Christopher Paczesny

The correct answer for the August/September contest is the Ford F-150 Lightning.


Counterman’s “Guess the Car” contest challenges our readers to solve an automotive riddle, for a chance to win $100. And each month, we receive hundreds of responses from aftermarket professionals trying to guess the model of the vehicle depicted.


The correct answer for the August/September contest is the Ford F-150 Lightning. The winner is Christopher Paczesny, commercial specialist at AutoZone in Palmyra, Maine.

Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.

CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?

CP: I’ve been at AutoZone for seven years now.

CM: What do you like most about your job?

CP: It’s not the same thing over and over again. There’s always a different problem to solve. Customers will come in and they don’t know exactly what the part is, but they can describe it to you. It’s kind of like a big word search for whatever the part is called, because in some parts of the country, parts are called different things for some reason.


CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?

CP: I’ve had so many of them, it’s hard to say. One is, “Can I return an OEM part?” That’s kind of weird.

CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?

CP: An ‘86 Ford Bronco XLT. Had a 351 Windsor in it. I owned that one for five years.

CM: Have you seen the new redesigned Bronco?

CP: Not a fan. I don’t believe they did justice to the Bronco.

CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?

CP: Mostly fishing and hunting.

CM: What’s your dream car or truck?

CP: A 1953 Ford pickup truck. Love the body style.
