In the car business, there are a lot of models that seem to come and go in just a few years, or never seem to really make it off the lot in their first year. For every Ford Mustang, there are a dozen other models whose names are lost to the vagaries of history. In this quiz, we'll see if you can recognize some of the most successful cars from a chronological standpoint. Which of these models with major staying power can you identify?
What makes a long-selling car? Quality workmanship helps, of course. When you can still find 30-year-old models of a certain car on the road today, it's a safe bet this year's model of that roadster is on sale at your local dealership. Sometimes, Hollywood can lend a hand. In the '60s and '70s, the muscle cars that appeared in movies like "Bullitt" and "Smokey and the Bandit" started flying out of dealerships almost as soon as the movies premiered. That led to today's market, where car companies actually advertise when their cars are in various movies.
But whatever the magic behind the metal, in this quiz, we'll see how many cars you can identify from the ranks of the longest-lived models!
