About This Quiz

Although the 1960s are probably best known for their production of muscle cars, there was a wide range of different automotive styles that rolled off the assembly lines in this time of tremendous social upheaval. Let's go back to the time of mood rings and granny glasses to find which vehicle matches you the best.

If you're the kind of person who has got the pedal to the metal, it's likely that a souped-up vehicle with plenty of power and speed will fit you great. Crank up the Creedence Clearwater Revival and let's get this show on the road. Some street racing might be on tap for this evening.

On the other hand, maybe you would best fit in with the original hippie scene. If that's the case, a VW Beetle or Microbus might be a groovy choice. You could load your friends into your ride, put some flowers in your hair, and head down to the protest: it's sure to be pretty far out!

Maybe both of those options seem a bit too racy for you. If you find yourself spending a lot of your time on the golf course or dining at the private club where you're a member, there's a luxury model that we have in mind for you.

The light just turned green. Let's burn some rubber.
