The cars of the 1960s are absolutely iconic. So many of the best designs came from that decade, and in 1969, in particular, you could find any number of cars that, even 50 years later, shame the things on the road. From the Pontiac GTO to the Plymouth Roadrunner to the Dodge Charger, this was a time when cars were built to dominate. Sure, they may not have been environmentally friendly or super safe, but they purred like kittens then roared like lions, and they could tear up a highway in ways modern cars could only achieve if they fell out of airplanes and landed on them.
The '60s brought about a lot of change in the world culturally as well as technologically. Car designs kept up with the times, and by the mid-'70s, a lot of these classic looks had all but been forgotten. So it's worth remembering them here and now since they really were some of the greatest vehicles ever to hit the road. If you can remember what you used to drive back then, we bet we can guess what it was, too. All you need to do is put the top down and cruise through this quiz with us.
