14/17.

2 of 3 misses were from ad campaigns that definitely ran before I was born.

Sports fans will probably have an advantage in this contest - I would guess the average pro sports telecast ad list is somewhere around 40% car ads.

Thanks for the post. It reminded me I haven't played Trivial Pursuit in years.

10/17. Far better than I thought, as I took wild guesses at most questions. Thought I did not care about cars, but obviously these ads found their way into our subconsciousness.

I scored 9/17. I got the luxury cars right...that's strange because I've never had one.

12 of 17, thought I would do well, some of those were a bit dated. However I did get two outright guesses correct and obviously 5 quite wrong.
