About This Quiz

Ask any car expert what defines a classic car, and we guarantee that you will get a different answer every single time.

Without a doubt, older cars that remain in demand today are classic cars. Those cars that are difficult to find and command hefty prices at auctions are classic cars. 

But what about cars that have been produced in their millions? Would you consider them a classic car? Yes, why not? The Volkswagen Beetle, of which over 20 million were made, is certainly a classic. The Model T saw 15 million units produced in 20 years. That is certainly a classic car as well.

But it gets a little murkier. What about cars that are only 30 years old. Something like the NSX from Honda. Well, the fact that it was designed with input from the genius of Formula One driver Ayrton Senna makes this a classic car in our book. The same for a car like the Subaru Impreza. Early versions of this performance sedan are certainly classics.

So the question is, now that you know how we define classic cars, would you be able to identify classic car manufacturers from just looking at their logo?

Let's see how you perform!

Good luck!
