About This Quiz

The '50s were an interesting time in the world of motoring, and people definitely saw a styling shift as cars moved from the rounded looks of the 1930s and 1940s into the long, sleek cars of the 1950s, particularly when it came to American models. 

Chrome became the order of the day, and together with pointy tail fins and convertibles, a number of Chevrolet and Ford models quickly became extremely popular.

On the other side of the Atlantic, European styling still maintained those sleek lines that once associated with the likes of Porsche and Ferrari. Toward the end of the decade, cars in Europe were generally smaller than their American counterparts, although still stylish!

But would you be able to name an American classic from just one image? Or would you be able to pick out the sleek lines of a 1950s model European sports car? What about a classic American truck, would you be able to identify the make and model? Make no mistake, this quiz will test your auto knowledge like no other.  And that's why only 7% of people who undertake it pass it with 100% of the answers correct.

But you can do this, your knowledge of cars will see you through! So why don't you give it a go, NOW!
