The AVERAGE score is 73%
I got less than half correct at 48%.
December 30th, 2012
Wow that was tough…guess I’m not old enough (hehehe). Some of them were downright dirty, like the four GM products from the same year. Or the four cars that no one ever heard of! Still, 73% is solid average.
Earned a 73%, guess I’m average.
79%, I disapointed myself.
Hanging my head in shame with a 65%.
I guess 65% isn’t too bad for a guy who misspells his own handle!
Birdie Num Num
The hood ornaments and the Kaiser-Henry J models tripped me up.
You got 67% (32 right out of 48).
Hubby and I took the test as a team and got 73%. Boo, we are only average.
I think we would do much better with a test of 60′s cars. We had slightly bigger brains in that era to concentrate on and remember the particular brands of cars.
Abby Normal Dude
83 because I don’t know Dodge
79% Had to take some SWAG’s on the Kaisers and Nash’s.
P.S. Why the CAPTCHA?
Loved Virgil Exner’s ‘Forward Look’ Chrysler Corp. models from ’55 to ’61.
I was told there’d be no math.
Snowball the Sourpuss
Whoa. I did worse than Fur. WTF? I’m pretty sure I could ace a 70′s test.
I am not only an old fart, but have been into cars since at least 1952….
56% Not bad, considering that I don’t give a hoot about antique autos and that I was in diapers when most of em were built … Hell, I’m back in diapers …
42% I suck! But I did get the ages of the Mercs correct and the hood ornaments as well.
60%. Show cars from the 1970s and I’d get them all right.
You got 100% (48 right out of 48). The average score is 73%.
Is it cheating if you’ve licked the windows in about half of them?
79% Not bad since most of those cars were in the scrap yards before I was old enough to care. I got tripped up with the oddball makes like Kaiser and Hudson.
I knew the Oldsmobile Holiday because we had one of those hoods in my back yard when I was a kid. We used it at a tobaggon in the winter. Weeeee!
A friend of my brother put a 327 in a Henry J in the 60′s. He drag raced it and did fairly well. It would go like hell, but couldn’t stop very well.

Got almost all of them correct but then, they were new cars when I was a kid in the 1950′s.
I can barely tell the makes of the cars never mind the exact year of the new one today.
Will you keep me around after the revolution? Somebody has to tell the youngsters about things in the past?
DeSoto (WTF is that?)- 0%
Missed your comments—and feathery face—lately.
The ‘fun’ is continuing around here. IYKWIM.
60%. Born in 1962. I’ll take it. Got all the GM stuff.
Boobie the Rocket Dog
I started paying attention in about 1955 but dad had a 53 Buick and mom a 53 Ford.
Big Fur, This is Groucho Marx in Duck Soup as a petty dictator. See if this isn’t a dead ringer for Obama. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5oFJ4MitJnY
I’ve cut back on my comments recently because I like to watch.
Yikes! I got 23% (11 right out of 48).
I would do MUCH better with 60s, especially 65-69. I always wanted a late 60s Firebird, sigh.
52% with 90% guess.
@OhioDan – Heh. A Marx playing a Marxist.
98 percent. funny how you can recognize certain features of the various manufacturers. now you can’t tell a Honda from a BMW.
Would large bags of birdseed lure you out occasionally? They’d have to be virtual ones, though.
79% and guessed a few times. The fact that i got the hood ornaments right , blew me away. Of course, you could use elimination (they didn’t have “none of the above” to really mess with you.)
Hey, I grew up in several of those cars and had my first foray into adolescence in another
71% , I LOVE cars. Viva Las Vegas!!!
I’m too embarased to say what I got.
Let’s just say BFH got more than double of mine.
I got 71% and for a 52 year old, I should have known better. Dad had a 56 Chevy four door when I was little. That helped.
Golly Gee Willikers
Coincidentally, I’m 52 and I got 71%, also. Mostly not from memory, but process of elimination, and deduction. Quiz me on 70′s cars!
You got 81% (39 right out of 48). The average score is 73%.
Mostly Buick & Pontiac mix-ups.
92%. Ferhoodled the Chevy years and mixed up a Willys and a Henry J.
I got 88% (42 right out of 48). The average score is 73%.
F.D.R. in Hell
I had no clue about any of those modern cars.
You got 83% (40 right out of 48). The average score is 73%.
Almost every one of those cars are older than me.
56%.. my dad would know.
Well, shoot. I only got 71%. But at least I beat Fur.
Thank you very much.
This was way too easy, I got 48 out of 48. Of course I grew up in the 50′s and 60′s but my Dad is also a mechanic and had a gas station and shop ( I worked for my Dad in the shop when I was growing up so I know my cars) so I kinda had a built in advantage. And my Dad loved Packards, we had a 53 Packard Clipper, maroon in color. Never got to drive it because it was worn out out by the time I was 16 in 1969.

I’m like the aardvark- I got 100% but was a car freak from the 50′s and 60′s. I was 6 years old in 1955—Growing up the family had a 48 Dodge, 52 Plymouth, 56, 57, and 58 Chevys, 62 Pontiac Catalina conv., 66 Buick Wildcat conv. (my favorite)67 Mustang (still in the family)69 Wildcat 4 door then they got boring. We also had a 58 VW Beetle and an Alfa Guilia TI (don’t know year)
92%. BTW. The best American cars are the ones built now.
84% Buick, Pontiac, Chevy look the same. Boats, all of them. Dad had a ’54 Olds 98 two-door. That was a BOAT! Back seat could sleep six.
67%. back then, if it wasn’t ford or GM, i could care less……
85% I bombed some of the mopars and off brands.
Nailed every GM and Ford instantly.
We had a 1954 Pontiac Star Chief with a straight
eight when I was hatched. It was a cruiser.
It was the top of the line for that year, and
had the fender skirts, snazzy coupe roofline, etc.
I still remember the electric eye it had for
turning the brights on and off. We would take
trips, and if the moon was rising on the horizon,
it would fake out the sensor and cut the brights
Back in those days, most highways were 2 lane
jobs, and not the safe highly lit 4 laners you
see with the interstates. So most drove with their
brights on almost all the time, and only turned
them off when a car was approaching.
And we used to go pretty fast. I remember going
80 quite often on those old roads.
