About This Quiz

Whether you are a Ford person or a lover of Chevrolet, there is no doubting that both these brands are not only recognized throughout the world but respected as well. And both have a very long and colorful history in not only American but world motoring.

Chevrolet was formed in 1911 by a certain Louis Chevrolet and William C. Durant, as well as a host of other investors. Henry Ford had been involved in the manufacture of automobiles for a few years before that, but helped change the game when he introduced an assembly line to vehicle production in 1913. This made his most famous vehicle, the Model T, accessible to the man in the street by significantly lowering production costs and soon Model T's were everywhere.

And from that day onward, Ford and Chevrolet have battled it out! That battle has been ongoing through the years! For example, think the '60s and when they pitted various muscle cars against each other. Or what about the battle of the pickups! Both Ford and Chevrolet have produced some exceptional examples over the years.

The question is, however, can you tell the difference between a Ford and a Chevy? One image is all you have and believe me, it's tougher than you think!

Good luck!
