    94%--which probably explains why my high school scores were significantly lower (could it possibly be that I was interested more in cars than high school)?

    83% but I was guessing on some.

    Thanks for posting Curt.

    missed 2, inverted De soto and Chrysler, they had the same body and different grilles. They also had the shifter sticking out of the dash.

    I'm a 50's model myself and an 83 was the best I could do.

    I did ok on Fords, GM products, Studebakers and Desotos. The other older and defunct companys like Hudson, Nash, and Willys were mostly guessing.

    Do you think in 60 years they will have a test like that for the cars running around now? I don't see how since they all look like squashed jelly beans. LOL

    I had 88%. The hardest ones for me were trying to decide what year the Mercury's were.

    As for identifying cars, I was pretty much well on. Only missed a couple of those.

    Fantastic cars back then....

    Hauxfan!

    I was born in '59, and am not much of a car buff, and got 58% correct. I surprised myself!!

    Great pictures of beautiful American Classics.
