About This Quiz

Some cars are immortal. The SL Black AMG is one of those cars. It looks like an angel brought it from Heaven, but spend five minutes in the seats, and you realize it was designed by Lucifer's tuning company. Cars are deeply personal objects not just for the owners, but for the people who designed them in the first place. Still, being personal, they are matters of taste. 

Saying which cars you love or hate puts you in a camp, and a lot can be inferred from that. These inferences range from your profession to your political party to your hometown. In the early 2000s, the RNC obtained lists of buyers from Mercury dealers because apparently 90% of Mercury buyers voted Republican, and that was a reliable mailing list.

What we plan to do with your automotive decisions is much more benign. We will pose a series of cars to you. Even if you aren't familiar with them, you will have an impression of them. We want you to give us your knee-jerk reaction to this question: does this car belong in Heaven or Hell? Your answers will provide us with the insights we need to guess your age accurately.
