    Car Quiz

    George Spring asked that I share this with you all...George being the brilliant man he is got 44 of 48 correct. I tried it and it totally screwed up and told me most of my answers were wrong.

    READ THIS BEFORE YOU START:

    1. There are 12 sets with 4 cars each so 48 cars for you to look at and identify.

    2. Each set of 4 has pictures of a 1950?s car and choices. You have to match the car with the correct name.

    3) After you fill in the 4 dots ? it says NEXT and then shows what the answers should have been. At the end you get a % score.

    71% here = average. I am not really a fan of 50?s American cars so process of elimination and a bit of luck helped.

    67% for me. Which still surprised me (in a good way). My American car knowledge really kicks in at the advent of the muscle car era. So the mid-50's is a bit of a void in my knowledge.
