    Yep; since May 9, 2009. BP

        100% Clearly a geezer quiz. I'd be lucky to get any right on cars of the 2000s.

          I'll take that bet if the quiz is organized the same as this one. I would probably do even better with 1990s cars because I was selling new and used cars in that time frame.

            The Willys Aero Wing was easy for me as I had a 53 Aero Ace when I was a kid. Bud

              I dunno...try this, do like we done a few days ago. We went to Popeyes, got that Great spicy chicken sandwich,....and parked in their lot, facing a very busy road. As the myriad of nearly identicle white/grey/Silver/Black 4 door aerodynamic passive vehicles went by...Oh! A dark red car!...then more of the same. ....Go Ahead.....ID them! Make, Year and Model Name.

                Good point, Skip. We'd probably do OK if it was just the make we had to identify, but the model year would be impossible. We bought a new 2008 Impala and the first 2009 model that dealer got happened to be identical to ours in color, interior, and options. You honestly had to look at the VIN to know which was which; there was no other way to distinguish the two. BP

ID:	1882000 . This aero look restarted with the 1983 Thunderbird, which thirty eight years later,, still appears modern. The public has seen smooth and rounded for a loooong time. But to change means bucking the air tunnel.

                    Eddie,
                    I too scored a lowly 94% with the emblems posing my biggest problem.
                    Oh well thanks for posting.

                      I specified that the quiz be organized like this one. Even with your proposal, I believe that I would do ok on make and model. With many, they would at least have to be standing still, as in a picture, to get the year (to see minor changes like tail lights). Sort of like telling a '53 from a '54 Studebaker by the grille and tail lights. No Popeyes around here to park at. Also, I do not eat in my cars.

                        How about trying the same on cars from the 1920's..?

                          I would not do well. To me, most of them just look like boxes. I guess that it mostly comes down to what you know and are used to/grew up with.
