Are You a Car-Spotter? Can You Name the Makes of These Vehicles?


Do you have a knack for knowing when a Chevy rolls by? Can you identify a late model Ford by its taillights? Are you good at telling a Subaru from a Toyota? See if you can name the brands behind these vehicles. There's enough diversity that no one except a real pro is going to know them all. Expect trickery and rare cars you've never seen in your town, but we've mostly stuck to models delivered to American customers at some point in the last hundred years. When in doubt, check both the clues and the extra hint, but have faith in your ability to recognize these four-wheeled wonders. Modern vehicles made in the same year tend to blend together, but older cars and trucks should be a cinch — makers were often in competition to see who had the most outlandish design features, from fins to bullet noses. Be careful: sometimes both the picture and description are necessary to narrow down the answer, such as in the case of surprisingly common "suicide doors."

Did you know?

This once-common but potentially dangerous feature keeps reappearing, including on a 2020 model.

The 2020 Lincoln Continental includes "coach doors," which are hinged to open towards the front and back of the car on a single side. Rolls-Royce also calls these coach doors, but you may know them as "suicide," "flex," "freestyle," "rear access" or "rear-hinged" doors. In one country, they gained the nickname "kidnapper doors." They might have been called "gangster doors," the story goes, because they make it easier for victims to make a forced exit from the vehicle while it's rolling. They were used on some pickup trucks in the past as a way of providing easier access to the rear seat in extended cabs. Door designs that limit rear access until the front doors are open made this convenience a popular feature on newer models such as the BMW i3 and the Honda Element. These are now called "clamshell doors."
