I don't profess to know my older stuff as I only achieved 48%.

Good Luck all you pros.
Cheers, Bill:(

Fun and thanks.
34 of 44 for 77%!
Whoda thunk?

Hmmm ... 40 out of 44 .... 91%. Got a few years wrong. Either I've been in the antique auto hobby too long (47th year) or I'm too old.

03-29-2017, 03:26 PM
82%, better than I expected. Don't know my Mopars.

03-29-2017, 05:26 PM
I got a 95% 42 out of 44. Got all the years right but missed on a Plymouth and a Buick. Guess all my misspent years of looking and reading car books has finally paid off. Of course the payment is $0.00 but priceless as far as satisfaction.

I got 86%. Not bad for a practicing somnambulist.

98%. I got the Olds year wrong and i zoomed in on the Mercury emblem on the hood of the 39 so I cheated on that one. I've read a lot of magazine and books on old cars since I was a kid so I guess that helps.

03-29-2017, 09:46 PM
:) 84%. Got all of the makes correct but missed a few years. :( :cool: BP

I got 57%. Didn't think that was too bad for someone who was born in the 60's.

wow! I got 52 percent. Better than I ever thought I could do. That was fun. Thanks.

84%. Not bad for being born in '61.

03-30-2017, 07:19 AM
I got 93%.

I missed the years on a couple of them.

95%, 42 out of 44. Missed the year of the Graham and the make of the older Dodge. I guess I know more about prewar cars than I thought. I didn't expect to do so well.

98%, Missed the year on the Airflow Chrysler..

03-31-2017, 12:37 AM
Born in 1963, I got 98%. Didn't realize I missed one, thought I got them all right. Yeah, I read a lot of car books, but it's more an understanding of the progression of styling.

I received 84%, did not miss the OLDS, I own one.

68%. Not bad for the current generation.

That's cool.
I should have know what year the car was since I like the movie "A Christmas Story"

93% -not bad for guy who is 39. Of course, I have been 39 for 40 years now, which gives me some advantage. It is noticeable that some of these cars were a few years advanced in styling, and you can see the influence on other cars a few years later, just by studying these examples. A couple of them I never would have known the year except by the choices they gave.

I went through this game with a friend, and he got all the makes right, but did not do so well on the years. I think if the questions were simply "What make and year?" , with no multiple choices given, I would have scored 20%, maybe less. I could not tell you the difference between 1930 vs 1932 Ford, 1935 vs 1936 Ford, same for Chevy, etc, and I would never have identified the Graham or the Hudson except by process of elimination.

Most makes went from the open fenders to the rounded full fenders in about 1935, and stayed with them until the late 40s. The 47 Kaiser was the first really modern body in the U.S., and like the Airflow, it just didn't sell very well. Failure of the Airflow has always been a mystery to me, coming at the beginning of the "art deco" period when furniture, appliances, trains and even trucks were being "streamlined", and some cars in Europe.

Thanks for sharing, but I thought it was pretty easy and I guess my 100% is proof.-Bill

Missed one make and 2 years . I learned to drive in 30's cars and its still my favorites. Have a 39 Buick --and Oh a 62 Hawk

04-03-2017, 09:47 AM
Easy. Got all the years right, but missed on the Mercury because I was too quick with my trigger finger so I got 98%. Much easier for me to do than cars of the 1970's.

89%, missed on the years. The original wheels and covers would have helped a lot. Been a long time since I saw some of these models.

41 out of 44, got all the makes, missed a few years.

91%. Like a few others, I missed the years on a couple. And that Mercury . . . .

04-10-2017, 02:05 PM
Boy, most of you guys are great. I got only 75%, 33 out of 44.

04-10-2017, 02:40 PM
I missed the year on two of them because I rushed my answer, but I got lucky on the make for one. :)

04-11-2017, 12:24 AM
36 of 44 thanks to my dad, I'm 64 yrs

05-03-2017, 09:11 PM
100% I've been in this hobby since 1956, so I had no trouble identifying these old roiling piles of misery.

05-03-2017, 10:53 PM
89% I figure I did alright if I could beat Bob Palma....

05-04-2017, 12:58 PM
41 out of 44 = 93%. Missed 3 years.

40 of 44. Better than I anticipated. Missed the year on the Cord (ugh!) and make on one Dodge.

05-05-2017, 04:48 PM
40 of 44, it was way easier than I would've thought... Born 1960 but interested seems to pay of & ofcourse I missed on more obvious years.

05-11-2017, 06:23 PM
I got 84%, or 37 out of 44. Not too bad.
