Are You a Car Guru?
by Steven Symes

VROOM VROOM! Every day when you leave your house, there's probably one thing you can't go a block without seeing - a car. Once a novelty, cars have become commonplace, and you're probably here because you love them! From foreign to domestic, are you a car guru?

While cars might be ordinary now, they clearly weren't when they were first invented. German inventor Karl Benz is credited with the invention of the true car with an internal engine. I bet you can name what brand was named after him! Since then, cars have grown beyond Germany to the entire world.

In the world of cars, there are a few countries that are considered leaders in the industry. The United States is known for Jeep, Ford, Cadillac, and Chevrolet. Germany is one of the top three contenders with Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Volkswagen. The top three couldn't be complete without Japan's Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, and Toyota.

While these three countries are major leaders, there are tons of other vehicles you'd need to know to be a true guru. France has the Bugatti while Italy has all the luxury cars you could possibly want. In addition to knowing all these cars on the outside, how well do you know their insides? Do you know the different types of engines? Do you know what lug nuts are?

There's only one way to find out! Put the pedal to the metal of this quiz and let's see if you're speeding your way to proving that you're a car guru!

Seat belts on!
