    Money may not buy happiness, but it's more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

    100% for me. The 51-55 Mercury block had to make me think before choosing & I really liked the hood ornament ones. Thanks for posting !

        Question 12 is important to us Studebaker fans. I did not realize that it has been 12-13 years since the car has been gone. Thanks to the quizmaster for posting it.

        I got 100 percent. The Lincoln hood ornament was a bit tricky but remember an article written on the 56 Lincolns.

              Same here, but stewed over the two similar Merc's for a while. Grew up in GM country.

                  Only 96%. I don't know the years for Mercury cars. I don't remember anyone in our extended family having one. Getting the makes was easy.

                        It appears that several of you had difficulty with the Mercurys. I guess that it was easier for me because I owned '49, '51 & '56 Mercurys and my father owned '49 and '53 Mercurys.

                          I also got 100%. Had to put my thinking cap on for the 52 to 55 Mercury's. My family never owned any.

                            We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                            Ayn Rand:
                            "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                            G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

                              Fun! Initially said that front quartering Henry J was the Aero but realized my error as soon as I saw the Aero. Would’a been a LOT harder for me if the choices had been between models instead of makes.
