About This Quiz

Cars define decades and generations just like clothes, makeup and music do. On top of that, movies and TV can either aid in a car becoming extremely popular, or fizzling out completely. The Trans Am was one of the coolest cars, and then "Smokey and the Bandit" came out and made it even more popular. "The Dukes of Hazzard" was known for the car. "Herbie Fully Loaded" brought back a nostalgic car. The bottom line is, if you're going on a cross-country road trip, you might as well do it in one of the most iconic cars of all time. It could even turn into a fun game of picturing yourself in that movie, in that car. How would the original driver act? Would they blast the air conditioning or roll the windows all the way down? It'll definitely add a fun activity to your long road trip!

But how are you supposed to choose one since there are so many? Well, it depends on what your intentions are for this road trip. Do you want to drive straight through, or make plenty of stops to see the sites along the way? Are you sleeping in your car, or parking at hotels? Also consider how much baggage you're bringing. (Physical, not emotional.) Ready to plan the ultimate cross-country road trip? Do it in this quiz and we'll give you an iconic car to drive!
