There is something special about them, that is for sure.
Big, loud, bold, brash ... and that's just the drivers of pickups! Just kidding. Modern-day pickups, especially those found in the United States, are certainly large and in charge. And they need to be. These are not only daily runners but working vehicles, be it on a farm, at a construction site ... OK, sometimes sitting in a lot outside a corporate office.
Even the Japanese-made truck makers, for example, have followed the 'bigger is better' route when trying to sell their trucks in the United States. And many other foreign automakers have followed the trend as well.
But let's look back at a little history before we set your task before you. When was the first pickup made commercially available in the United States? Well, it should really not come as any surprise to you that Henry Ford had a hand in developing the first vehicle of this sort.
And it was his trusty old Ford Model T that was converted into a truck version simply known as the Runabout. This was in the mid-1920s. And the rest, as they say, is history.
So let's test your knowledge now on these versatile vehicles. But not American models. We'll use foreign models, some of which are built in the States and others which if you want them, would need to be imported.
