I got 14 out of 17.
I missed #3, #4, and #6. Honestly though, I wouldn't have guessed some of them if it wasn't multiple choice, so you at least know one of the four choices is correct. Fill-in-the-blank, and I would've done a lot worse.

I got the first 4 wrong, so I gave up
I think I am ok at relating engine sizes to manufacturers, but when it comes to pictures, I'm not so good...many of them I have never really examined before in person.

Yeah I scored the same as you. I got the obvious ones but really I'm not into rods all that much.
One thing I noticed. Most American engines are not that attractive. They are very agricultural and they sort of blend together in my mind.

10/17 with several guesses - yes, a v8's a v8, unless it's a hemi...it's ironic that modern US engines, now with all the DOHC neat stuff, are covered with all those plastic sound reducers. Not much to look at.

The only ones I actually knew and got right were the two small-block Chevys toward the end, and only because I recognized the butterfly exhaust manifold from the LMC catalog.

Andre is clearly the winner here. Has anyone ever sent you the chest shots where you have to determine real or silicon? I am really good at that one.

i got 11 out of 17, but like you, my score would have been lower if not multiple choice.
over the weekend i saw a big old merc on a trailer with a y block magazine sticker on the side. if i had checked it out, i might have gotten 1 more.

Just showing my age I suppose.

16/17. Couldn't tell a 348 from a 409 (even with the dipstick clue).

Me neither. I never liked either of those engines. They belong in trucks and I don't care if the Beach Boys wrote a song about one of them.
