About This Quiz

A road trip is one of the great American traditions. Pack up your family of friends, hop in the car and just discover the open road. The best road trips are the ones where the destination is only half the fun and the trip itself is what matters. Heading from town to town, state to state, discovering new places and new people, seeing the open country, the mountains, the deserts, the farmland and the forests. It's like nothing else you can experience. But you need the right soundtrack.

Driving for eight straight hours in silence would drive anyone nuts. That's why cars have stereos! And whether you're listening to satellite radio, your favorite playlist, or an old-school 8-track, your choice in tunes sets the tone for the whole voyage. It also says a lot about the kind of car you want to be behind driving. If you're down for some "Born to be Wild" by Steppenwolf or "Go Your Own Way" by Fleetwood Mac, we bet your favorite car is a lot different from those who are grooving to "Shut Up and Drive" by Rihanna or "Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake. One way to find out for sure! Take the quiz and see!
