About This Quiz

For so many teenagers, a driver's license is their first taste of freedom. Do you remember that first solo drive after you turned 16? Windows down, music blaring and the open road in front of you? Those hours spent bored out of your mind in driver's ed were worth it. You knew the gas pedal from the brake pedal and were more than ready to strike out on life's literal (and figurative) highway. When you look back on that first ride, what car were you driving?

Some kids work summer after summer saving for their first car. Others wake up on their 16th birthday to find a bright red bow atop something with four wheels in their driveway. However you came to acquire your first car, you were just happy to have one. No more bumming rides from friends or asking your parents for a lift (how embarrassing).
