Sunday Special - Automobile Quiz

Part One - Cars of the Sixties (Sorta)

1. In 1960 Chevrolet introduced a rear-engine car with a 108 inch wheelbase.
None of the major US manufacturers made a rear-engine car at the time. At
fifteen feet long it supposedly seated six. They produced this car until May
1969. What car was it?

2. Ford Motor Company introduced a compact car in 1960 that featured a
144-cid inline six. The model stayed in Ford's line until 1970. What car was

3. General Motors' entry-level luxury brand Buick introduced a sports/luxury
coupe in 1963. The car was distinguished by razor edged lines and a 425-cid
engine. The car was produced through 1993, then brought back from 1995-1999.
What car was this?

4. Rambler/AMC had their share of popular models. In 1965 Rambler introduced
a 6-seat fastback to compete with Ford's Mustang. Disappointingly, the car
was only produced for three years--a total of 17,400 cars. What car was

5. The "Dukes of Hazzard" car is next. This model was introduced by Dodge in
1966. The car was a fastback (like the Marlin, Barracuda, and Mustang 2+2),
had full-width taillights, hidden headlights, and either a 318-cid V8 or a
383-cid V8. What car was this?

6. GM's Oldsmobile division introduced a revolutionary front-wheel drive,
full-sized car in 1966. Built on the same platform as the Cadillac Eldorado,
this car was a full-sized luxury car with great styling and was aimed at the
Ford Thunderbird market. Oldsmobile built this 2-door coupe through 1992.
What car was this?

7. In 1967 Chevrolet introduced the Camaro--a car meant to compete with the
Ford Mustang and the new Mercury Cougar. The same year Pontiac introduced
another pony car. This car shared the Camaro platform. What car was this?

8. In 1967 the Ford Motor Company introduced a car that coupled the
Mustang's sportiness with the Thunderbird's luxury. The car was produced by
Mercury. It was distinguished by a full length, divided grill with vertical
slats. The hidden headlights were placed in the grill. It also had a 3"
longer wheelbase than the Mustang. The car was produced through model year
2002. What car was this?

9. In 1968 AMC finally brought out a pony car of their own. The car had a
split front grille, painted black. The rear was also painted black with
rectangular taillights. It can best be described as a semi-fastback as the
rear roof line did not extend all the way back. What car was this?

10. You would not think a major car maker would name a model after a cartoon
character but Plymouth did just that in 1968. They introduced a medium-sized

that could seat six. What car was this?
