About This Quiz

VROOM VROOM! If we take a trip back to the 1960s, we'd find some iconic and now-obscure cars filling up the streets. From the popular Camaro to a Microbus, can we guess what car you would have driven in the '60s?

By the time the '60s rolled around, the car industry had already made great waves from where it first began. The car journey began in 1885 in Germany, when inventor Karl Benz created the first true car with an internal combustion engine. In 75 years, the car industry would become one of the biggest around the world, and some of the most iconic cars were created in this decade. Which would you have driven?

The decade was extremely popular for the introduction of muscle cars. The 1960s introduced the classic Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro and Plymouth Road Runner. You would've seen Pontiac GTOs, Shelby GT500s and Dodge Chargers in their native habitat. Would you be cruising in a muscle car or something a little less flashy? 

While it definitely wasn't flashy, the Volkswagen Microbus was a common sight to see. You might've seen Volkswagen's other popular car, the Beetle. Sorry — did you want the luxurious Aston Martin DBS, instead?

There were tons of cars that made the 1960s iconic. Would you have gotten into a raw powerhouse or a "happy" vehicle? Let's find out!
