About This Quiz

Do you remember how excited you were when you got your first car? There are few feelings that evoke the sense of freedom as being mobile for the first time. The details you provide us about your very first ride will not only make you feel nostalgic, but will also help us guess the decade you were born in. 

Because we want to have a good time reliving your first chariot with you, we're not going to come out and ask you about the era you were born in. Instead, we think that learning about your first car's features and the memories you have with it will give us all the information we need to make an accurate guess. Sure, you could have driven a '70s car in the '00s, but our questions will steer you past any conflicts that might come up. 

Whether you got your first car right off the lot or it was a hand-me-down from your parents, we know that you loved your first car like it was a family member. Share all the things you remember about it, and we'll do our best to figure out when you were born. We're assuming it wasn't yesterday—but was it more recently than we'll guess?
