by Maria Trimarchi

Although the United States isn't necessarily known for producing high-performance cars, we aren't completely without some gems either. If you think you know all of the high-performance American cars ever made, take this quiz. We bet you can't get all 50 right.

Some of the best high-performance American cars have been around for decades. When we think about the Ford Mustang, the Chevy Camaro, the Ford Thunderbird, the Pontiac Trans Am, and the Chevy Corvette, our hearts beat almost as fast as the engines of these classics. 

The Ford Mustang, for instance, has been in production since 1964 and is now in its sixth generation and looking better than ever. The Chevy Corvette has been around even longer The Corvette entered production in 1953 and is currently in its seventh generation. 

The Pontiac Trans Am was a special version of the Firebird and was produced from 1969 to 2002. And although the Ford Thunderbird is no longer in production, it first hit the scene in 1955 as a two-seater convertible. Ford took the car out of its lineup in 2005. We'd love to see it make a comeback. And these are only a few of the high-performance cars America is known for.

Take this quiz to find out how well you know these high-performance American cars.
