How many 70’s cars can you name by year? I took these pictures from various car shows I attended. These cars are not in year order, and they range from 1970 to 1979 just to make it more interesting.

Write down the year and make, then check the Answers below to see how many you got right.

No peeking at the answers! Have fun and Good Luck!

I found the trick questions......3 1974 Camaros... #10, #23 and #26. Did I win??

I always liked the 1973 Grand Am.,,first year of the Colonnade Coupes.

colonnade kŏl″ə-nād′ noun A series of columns placed at regular intervals. A structure composed of columns placed at regular intervals.

The 1970 Olds 442 caught my eye as my 69 was that color.

Nice thread Mario......made me use some gray cells that haven't been active for awhile.

I was never good at identifying the Cadillacs, and the larger luxury barges as they were called.

Nice going Rob, you found the 3 same cars and it was surely a difficult 70's car game. Not much styling to differentiate the 70's cars and years.

The 70's cars were boring and thus I'm not much of a fan of them. The only good thing about them is it makes me appreciate the 50's and 60's cars that much more!

Thank you for taking all 3 car games Rob. Cheers, Mario

Mario, I got seven wrong and I thought I would have done worse than that. As much as I love my 1974 Chev Caprice Estate, I am not that big a fan of the seventies and forget everything that came after that. I guess you can say that it was the beginning of the end for interesting cars built in North America. Government meddling turned our beloved Detroit iron into blobs. Mario, thanks for the fun. Cheers.

Very good George! Not bad you got 76% correct on a hard 70's car game. I'm not much of a fan for 70's cars either. After the 70's the cars got boring, under powered and unattractive. As you said the Govt stepped in and screwed the auto industry as well as all of us.

But we still have the 50's and 60's cars around to enjoy and we'll never give them up. Thanks for playing all 3 games George. Cheers, Mario

Mario, I forgot to thank you for having my 1974 Chev Caprice Estate wagon included in your collection of 70's cars here on your post. Cheers to you my old car buddy.

You're very welcome George. Your 74 Caprice was a perfect car for the Name the 70's Cars Game. Cheers, Mario
