About This Quiz

For better or worse, humans have a real desire to make the things they create be aesthetically pleasing. Sure we mess it up sometimes, and beauty is always going to be in the eye of the beholder, but for the most part, we all like things that are visually appealing and try to avoid those things that are a little off-putting and wrong-looking.  It can come across as shallow in some contexts, but it doesn't always have to be.  Consider art, for instance.  We are attracted to art almost purely because it is visually appealing.  And really, is an automobile all that different from art?  It has to be designed by someone, it's crafted and altered and put together in a way that is meant to be enticing and alluring. We use words like "sleek" and "sexy" to describe new car models.  The visual appeal is built right in. 

Of course, the problem with cars is that they are subject to the rigors and stresses of everyday life. A bad paint job, a car wreck, some untreated rust, all of these things can drastically alter the visual appeal.  And then, let's be honest, some cars just come off the line looking kind of ugly. So where does your car stand?  Answer some questions for us and we'll tell you unequivocally just how attractive your vehicle truly is.
