About This Quiz

When you pull to the line, you've got nothing to prove, but losing is not an option. Your car is your castle, and your castle is strong. The roar of the engine matches the rising beat of your heart. 

Let's start this quiz off by saying that if you agree with any of these statements, the question is not if a muscle car is the right type of vehicle for you; the real question is which muscle car best matches your personality. By answering 30 quick questions, we'll use the miracle of modern computing, along with our special knowledge of the human soul to match you with your dream muscle car. Answer honestly and you'll be given the car of your dreams (well, you won't be given the car — this isn't a magical quiz —  but you'll at least be pointed in the right direction). 

Do you prefer your muscle with some finesse, or do you just want more muscle with your muscles? Do you like classic or contemporary? Do you want original or upgraded? What you drive tells a lot about you, and your dream car should match your dreams. 

So, are you ready to meet the car built for you and you alone? There are no wrong answers here, but we can't do our job if you don't answer with your heart. Let's go see what your No. 1 ride will be!
