I got 85% but I'm happy with that.   What struck me is the ones that I didn't get were cars that didn't interest me while growing up.   I'll tell my wife about this tonight and hopefully she will stop saying that I know everything about old cars.   I'll use you 100%ers to prove that I don't know everything.

Not bad test scores overall you guys.  This was a pretty cool test.  They should make more of these.

Despite living in the UK and having a limited knowledge of 50's American cars some inspired guesswork got me a total of 92%. :D

You got 100% (48 right out of 48).  I guess it does pay to be old.  Saw all of these on the road at one time or another!  Most didn't look that good though :lol:

Wow I got 100% I surprised myself. I guessed when it got to the orphan cars like the willy's henry j and such. But pretty proud for being a younger guy. I thank my uncle who has a lot of those sitting in his garage/warehouse.

One of the tests has incorrect year-to-car in one of its photos ... I got 84% ; some of those Kaisers and whatnot screwed me up !

Had no idea about the hood ornaments 'cept the one I've seen a million times - but you could study them and begin to reason which belonged to which...
