Last week's challenge: The name of the film director David Lynch conceals the word AVIDLY in consecutive letters, spanning his first and last names. Can you think of a famous film director whose first and last names conceal a 6-letter make of car, past or present, in consecutive letters?
Challenge answer: Guillermo del Toro (Model T) or Dennis Sanders (Nissan)
Winner:Nicole Castonguay, Portland, Ore.
Next week's challenge:This challenge comes from listener Bruce Campbell of Kansas City, Mo. Think of two well-known companies — one in five letters, the other in four letters. Write the names one after the other. The result, when spaced differently, will name a well-known geographical location in the U.S. (in two words). What is it?
