    It seems like most of you guys got tripped up by the best-looking, best-engineered American cars of the '50s (Mopars).

    :(

    92%... Most of these were the more unpopular cars. Slipped on a few. Got lucky on some too.

  19. I got 100%, it was easy for me. Of course, I'm a '52 model myself, so I recognized all of my contemporaries.
     
  20. Managed a 100% but I totally guessed on the mercs

  24. Now if they do one for '90's and newer cars, they could just add a box for "all of the above" and we could all ace it!

  25. LOL its because the Coronet has craigers, that will throw you off every time. I had a Coronet that someone had stuffed a **426 in back in the early '80s. Same color but not the same condition, they spent all their money on drive train. A friend and dedicated alcoholic had a poly powered Plymouth version of it when I was in high school, it had no brakes and he always used the E brake or reverse to stop or slow down.
