About This Quiz

The 1970's. What a decade for motoring.!

It was a decade where the world struggled for gas and cars were sometimes the last thing on people's minds. It was a time of rock 'n roll, the birth of disco, the rise of Motown and the end of the hippie era. That said, even though many didn't care for cars, except to get them from A to B, others were still looking or the ultimate ride.

And so the 1970s gave us an incredible assortment of cars, not only from American carmakers, including the Big Three, but from abroad as well. Japanese cars started to make an impact in the United States and like in the '50s and '60s, those beautiful European designs continued to come into the country as well.

Although they had been "invented" just a few years earlier, muscle cars were still extremely popular, especially with lovers of large, American V8 engines. Sports cars, particularly of European origin, also remained popular.

So in this quiz, your knowledge of cars from the 1970s needs to be top notch. Just take your time, you can do it!

Good luck!
