About This Quiz

It's 2018 and the vehicles we drive are now outfitted with things that our grandparents could have never dreamed up. From television screens to built-in WiFi hotspots, 360-view cameras and self-opening trunks, built-in vacuums and massage chairs, we're damn-near living in space with all the advances that man has made to the everyday vehicle. But let's take it back a few decades, to the cars and trucks people used to love driving. Let's go far back enough to the time of the classic cars. Could you identify them if we showed you a picture?

While there's no official definition, classic cars (based on our research) are cars that are more than 20 years old, but less than 100 (those are called antique cars). These coveted vehicles are collected and preserved by car lovers around the world, but do you remember what they look like? Do you remember the Chevrolet Camaro (you know, the car Bumblebee from Transformers turns into)? Could you spot one of the very first cars in the world, the Ford Model T, if we showed it to you? What about the Aston Martin DB5 that James Bond used? Could you recognize it in a sea of other classic cars?

Today we want to test your knowledge of the vehicles that existed not-so-long- ago. Are you enough of an auto fan to correctly name them? Or should you just stick to driving what's out now?
