50's Car Test

Since we are in a break waiting for the next LPGA tournament, which is in another week or so, here's something that'll keep you busy:

50's Car Test

Alright you young & older whipper-snappers, let’s see how you do.
Be honest with yourself no cheating. See how you do.

This will really rattle the cobwebs in the old brain.



Car Show Game - 1950s - American Torque .com

Then, tell us your score. The first time I took the test I only got 65%

58% but I have to admit guessing and trying to squint at the emblems. I knew of some of the long gone manufacturers but had not seen many models. Every car listed was made before I was born. My grandmother had a 62 or 64 Chrysler with full wings and a 3D instrument panel. As a kid taking out Grandma in this car was a real fun event. It lasted long enough (as did my grandmother) that I got to drive that car as a young adult.

My first car was a '55 Chevy BelAire. Paid $50 for it from my older brother. They sure don't make them like that anymore.

25% which given I have no knowledge of any US cars before 2000 is not really that bad! Surprisingly I got all the makers right for the 1958 cars, and the maker/year ones a couple right and the others just the one year out. Useless on most of the others as the logos etc meant nothing.
