About This Quiz

The 1970s: If you lived through them, you might be trying to block out their memory, especially if you're a car lover. This was not a great time for car enthusiasts, chiefly because of the oil crises of 1973 and 1979, which meant not only high prices, but long lines at the gas station, and stations that ran out of gas altogether!

The automotive industry's response? Economy cars, of course. These flooded in from Japan, and U.S. carmakers tried to follow suit. The problem was, nobody really knew yet how to make a car that combined high gas mileage with decent performance and good style. Even Ford stumbled in this era, making a Mustang that car buffs almost universally hated ... this after nearly cornering the market on the pony car in the 1960s.

Even so, there were bright spots. This was the decade that released classic car-centric movies like "Duel" and "Vanishing Point." Dodge and Pontiac released cars that would become iconic. Europe gave us the Lamborghini Countach (even if most people could only afford the poster, not the car itself.)

So, are you a fan of the cars of this redheaded stepchild era, the 1970s? Prove it now, with our quiz. We'll see you at the finish line!
