I was just browsing through Boeing's 2004 orders, and I noticed that on Dec. 29, an unidentified customer ordered 5 737-600s. Now we all know sales for this model aren't doing too well, so my question is what airline would order these? Any speculation or rumors out there? An add-on for WestJet perhaps?

With AM busy replacing its MD-82's, 83's and 88's with 737-700's, I wouldn't dare to say that it's them (for purposes of replacing the MD-87's); moreover, their next move seems to be getting 772ER's for their long-haul services so I really doubt this order was made by AM. Or could it be them?
It will be interesting to find out more about this order because, as Hoya mentioned, the sales of the 736 have been kind of meager.
Next flights: MEX-AMS KL 74M | AMS-PRG KL E90 | PRG-CDG AF A320 | CDG-MEX AM 788

My guess is Westjet. Westjet filed twice in the second half that they had exercised Purchase Rights for at least 3 more 736. I know this order is for 5 but no corresponding order for these 3 had appeared, maybe they added a couple more frames.

It could be RAM, they put 6 B734 to 8A(atlasblue) and their remaining B735 are aging fast, around 12 years old, and with new program that they put to get 10m tourists by 2010 to Morocco, there is no reason why not RAM put a such order and in Morocco they never reveal anything to the media till it's too late anyway.
