About This Quiz

The 1970s were a strange time in the world of auto manufacturing. New government regulations drastically altered the way cars could be made and changed performance standards. Concerns over fuel and pollution were just coming to the forefront of people's consciousness, so the decade has an eclectic mix of monstrously powerful vehicles, unique family designs, and sporty, fuel-efficient options. The decade was also very memorable for its unique aesthetics, that classic "1970s" look that so many of us can instantly recognize when we see it these days. It's hard to even put to words, but when you see a car from the '70s, you know it.

With a wide range of vehicles and designs, there was something to appeal to just about everyone. If you were a speed demon, a parent, a leisure driver or someone who wanted more of a boat than a car, the '70s had your back and then some. With everything there is to choose from, we're pretty confident we can find the right car for you. And not just a car you might like, but the absolutely perfect, four-wheeled match for you.
