Are you a hot rod aficionado? Do you race, or do you prefer to sit on the sidelines? Either way, you probably know a thing or two about hot rod engines. Take this quiz to find out how much you really know.
Who cares about engines? Well, if you happen to be a fan of hot rods, you do. These fine-tuned machines need special engines, and the owners of these cars tend to treat those engines like they are their babies. Because a hot rod tends to be a classic car, the typical hot rod engine is a big one. After all, it's hard to race on a small engine -- you don't want to get laughed off the strip. Hot rod engines are tweaked for performance, with engines that may or may not be entirely original to the vehicle. In some instances, the layout of the front end of the vehicle has to be altered to accommodate an engine that was definitely not designed for the car it is being inserted into, but that's the glory of the hot rod -- to make the impossible, possible; to push the limits of what the automobile was intended to do; to go where no man has gone before... oops, we got carried away there. Hot rods are just awesome.
Do you think you can ace this hot rod quiz? Let's get started.
