About This Quiz

The '70s were a hugely underrated decade in terms of design and esthetic. This was the era in which fuel and emission standards started coming to the forefront of automaking and the gas-guzzling muscle cars of the past had to be forgotten to make room for new vehicles that were safe and performed to a standard. People wanted smaller cars. Fuel-efficient cars. Economical cars. But that was just what was under the hood. On the surface, the design of the '70s changed greatly as well. Just look at the Mustang II compared to the original Mustang. Or the sleek styles Lamborghini came up with for the Miura and the Countach. Then contrast that with a Chevy Vega and an AMC Gremlin.

There was a car for every taste and every need in the 1970s. Some looked amazing, some performed well, some were just quirky and fun and weird. But whatever the case, we know there's one perfect '70s car that matches up with who you are deep down inside. So are you a Datsun Z or a De Tomaso Pantera? A Lancia Stratos or a Maserati Bora? There's one way to find out for sure, and that's to take the quiz and see!
