I'm sure I'd flunk '90's and '00's sedans badly too.

I'm the opposite. I'd have a shot at 100% if you went 1980 and later.
I got 54% in that quiz, better than I expected to do.
I think the thing is my dad was not really a car guy, so I only got in to cars in the mid 1980s.

43 out of 48 and all but one were clerical errors (thinking I clicked one box when I clicked another - had the 55 and 56 Chevys reversed when I knew better and mixed up my Kaisers. I was born in 1951.
There were some educated guesses in there but a lot of them were good old multiple choice specials - you eliminate what you know isn't right and there it is...

I'm bad a guessing, or just have bad luck.
On nearly every question, I got 2 out of 4. You find a logo or styling cue that stands out, and can pick 1 or 2 correctly, then the rest is basically a guess.
I missed nearly all those guesses. Oh well, I don't play the lottery and I guess it's a good thing - I'd never win!

My killer was catching all those funny things and then hitting the wrong thing on those Chevys. Doh!

finally gave in and did it. 69%. Not bad for a guy born in 1973.
I got the one with the ornaments all right. The one with the Henry J and Kaiser I got all wrong, which surprised me. On several, I KNEW 2 and guessed 2 and almost always guessed wrong. Oh well.

I got 100% but that's only because I think I once owned all of those cars
Actually I had to guess on 3 or 4 and got lucky.

Okay, so nobody got #1178 Who Am I # 1178
and so I'll tell you it was George Keller, who made the Keller car.

Okay, now I'm really going to get tough:
I was the only Ford Co. car (or at least the only one Shiftright remembers) that used a GM carburetor!!
Who Am I?
hints: 4-barrel / big block

I'd guess Lincoln, but couldn't guess the year.
