    50's Car Quiz

    http://www.americantorque.com/game/car-show-50s/

    This might keep you amused for a while.
    I had no clue, but that's not surprising considering I only came to live in the USA in 1989, so they were not part of my youth.

    I missed two as well. I wasn't paying attention and mixed up the '56 DeSoto and Chrysler.

    Well I got 83%. At 62, I have trouble with cars around 52-56 - was too young to remember the body styles.

    Thinking about it - in 1960 you virtually didn't see many cars that were more than 3-5 years old. Those cars didn't last a long time in the rust belt.

    If that had been an academic test, I would have failed. I di fail, in fact. I only got 72%. That's pitiful.

    I think they were all Chinese cars - well they all looked the same to me - 35%.

    I got 4 out of 4 on questions 1 and 10. Used to work in the paint shop of a Chevy dealer beginning in 1959 through1962.

    Dang, these sure bring back memories from my younger years. Imagine being a kid in your teens with a new drivers license, or knew some one, who's dad just got one of these new beauties. Just chomping at the bit, hoping to get behind the wheel, and take her for a spin. Of course, JR. would have to convince his dad that we where just going to take it "AROUND THE BLOCK". I had just a friend who's dad just bought a new Desoto. I don't remember the Model, but it was a '57. The first thing it had to pass was the "go fast" test. And how soon it could get there. But some where during our "testing", we bent the drive line. Not bad, just enough to put a slight vibration in it. Of course we did not know how that happened. Must have been a factory defect in it. AHHH, those were the days.....by the way, I also got 100% on the test.......
