Quiz: Can You ID These '60s Cars From a One Sentence Description?

The 1960s were unlike any other decade in automaking history. Designs began to evolve heavily after the boom of the '50s, and more and more manufacturers had skin in the game. Simple pragmatism was no longer a driving force behind driving. Cars had to look good, feel good and be powerful. Before fuel and safety standards of the 1970s changed the game, the '60s was the decade in which manufacturers could let loose and produce what are still some of the most powerful and iconic muscle cars of all time, like the Corvette or the Challenger. Those cookie-cutter designs of long, high-finned land yachts of the '50s gave way to sleek European designs like the Alfa Romeo Giulia and the Toyota 2000GT.The '60s offered up unprecedented style, luxury and performance. Everything that came after has been influenced in some way by these revolutionary designs. Many of them, like the Camaro and the Mustang, are still in production today because they're just that good and just that popular. So let's see what you know about the iconic cars of the 1960s. We'll give you a sentence, and you tell us what car it is. Think you can get them all? One way to find out!
