About This Quiz

Are you ready to break some speed laws and turn heads while you do it? Everyone, gearhead or not, has seen that one special car that they just had to drive. Maybe you loved the "Back to the Future" movie trilogy and just had to drive a DeLorean. After all, who doesn't want to hit 84 mph and see where... or when it takes them?

So, whether you like to long-haul it on cross-country road trips or wiggle your way in and out of L.A. traffic as only a true roadster like yourself can do, there is a classic speedster out there to make you drool as naturally manipulate your gears. Sounds like that might take a Ferrari, or better yet the most classic Ferrari ever made - the 250 GTO.

This quiz is for drivers who love to impress and remind the neighbors that they have some work to do if they want to "keep up with the Joneses." If you consider yourself flashy, a gearhead or just someone who wants to drive the car made iconic in your favorite movie, then this is the quiz for you. Powered up with 1.21 gigawatts, make sure you put on your seatbelt because this quiz is going to put you in the seat of the car you should be taking down Route 66.
