    One for the auto buffs in the group

    I got this in an email from a mutual acquaintance... kind of interesting..

    I took the test and got only 75% right... not all that much of a car buff and most were before my driving years began...

    take the test and post your results.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    83% which I'll take, considering my oldest car driven was my '69 Chevelle

    Got 'em all! 100%

    I could remember nearly all of them from when they were new.

    I quit before it finished but I probably got 25% to 30% just from guessing. I never paid much attention to cars. I didn't recognize hardly any of them and guessing the year was impossible.

    I could claim that I was just a baby when they were made, but...

    Obviously I got the lowest score, however, I have always been a fan of classic american cars. One of my dreams is getting one of these and restore it. Or maybe getting an already restored one ( if I become a millionaire)
    Best regards,
