    Hooray! I got 'em all! Oh, wait, I'm supposed to look at the picture first, then read this post? Never mind.

    I wish I was that knowledgeable about cars back from that era. I can probably do pretty well with really mashed up cars from the 80's, but this era, not so much so.
    Didn't read the whole previous post, but congrats to the Hoonigans who got right answers!

    Not too shabby, if I do say so myself. I'm kind of amused at how often I either had the right car but was off by a year or I had the right year and was off by one make (for example, I guessed Buick when the correct answer was Olds.)

      Yeah, of the eight I got wrong, 55% correct though, 4 of them were the same manufacturer but wrong marque…I still came in last though…
      Good job to Smells_Homeless, 11/18 and to
      mda 37, 15/18…do you have an old copy of Consumer Guide laying around?
      Thanks for the fun time Jeff..


    I could have sworn No. 17 was a KIA.
