    I think only four of the cars were manufactured during my lifetime. I got most of the late 50's but the early 50's KMA. I either got almost all of them, or only one of them, per question. - 66%

    Well, I am not a classic car person and I got 71% right. I thought that was pretty good. Some of those cars were made before I was born. And I'm old.

    I actually owned and/or drove many of those cars. 51 and 52 Studebaker, 53, 55 and 57 Chevy, 55 Packard, Hudson - forget the year.

    Do you have any pictures of them? I love old cars. I have a small collection of about 30. All the new cars look like jelly beans with wheels under them to me.

    I got a 78... was born in 1975. I like cars of that era but rarely see as many as I'd like.

    92% --- and one of the 4 I missed was actually the first car I owned! Had to do some guessing on #11, missed 2

    90%, Process of elimination on some of them, some I knew right away. Sometimes it pays to be old.
