I got 88% but not ready to admit to being an old fart. Maybe a young fart trapped in an old fart's body.

I got 92%, and like a lot of youse guys, the Mopars got me. Angry  All we messed around with back in the day was Chevys and Fords.   Did have one buddy with a 49 Merc and another with a 53 Studabaker.  My first was a 49 Chevy.

Larry, I was down with dad last night and needed something to do. So I let him take your quiz. he got 48 out of 48. The amazing thing was he didnt even have to think about them. And as he would tell me which ones were which, he would tell me a story of the late 50's of how he worked on this one or that one and how well they would run. It was good for him to spend time doing this. As for me I dont think I even had 25% of them right. Thanks for posting it.
