About This Quiz

The 1970's provided a range of different vehicles. Muscle cars were undoubtedly the in-thing when the decade started, and all the major manufacturers in the United States were competing for the title of the biggest, baddest muscle car out there.

And then came the Middle Eastern oil crisis and all of a sudden, massive big block V8's were now a problem and popularity fell away. Of course, that led to a range of other markets that opened all over the world with fuel efficient, smaller cars quickly rising in popularity. And it's easy to see why, but most importantly, they didn't guzzle gas.

The '70s also saw an upturn in off-roading as a recreation sport, and many people started looked for vehicles that would not only take them to work every day but provide some fun on the trails over the weekend. 

And so we get to the task ahead of you. We have taken a range of cars from all over the world, and we hope that you can identify them. There is a small catch, however. The images you will see to help you with the identification process are in black and white. Will it make a difference? Let's see.

Good luck!
