About This Quiz

Society has been obsessed with the car culture ever since its inception in the early 1900s. People would cruise up and down the strip in the '50s just for the fun of it. In modern times, people are veering away from a daily commute and opting for cyber workplaces. In a study orchestrated by Cooper Tire, Americans spend upward of 8 hours and 22 minutes a year in their cars. This includes everything, such as bopping around town doing errands, daily commutes and long road trips. When you think about it, that's a lot of time to be spending somewhere. How are you spending that time, though? Are you wrapped in exotic heated leather seats or swaddled in coats and blankets because your heat went out months back? To some, money is no object when it comes to their mode of transportation. To others, a car is just a mode of transportation when it's too far to walk or the weather is inclement.

Although some people look in their garage and see a status symbol, others see a reliable family sedan. Take our quiz to see if we can guess if you broke the bank on your car or are simply getting from point A to point B on a penny jar budget.
