Although modern cars are faster, built with modern components and materials and have more gadgets and accessories, there is just something about cars built in the first 50 years of the 20th Century that just can never be beaten.
Sure, the really early cars were not much to look at, but even those 'horseless carriages' had a sense of style. By the time Henry Ford hit the motoring scene, cars began to resemble designs that we still see today. A closed body, engines in the front (for the most part), steering wheel instead of a tiller and two or four doors.
Ford's creations became legends and even more followed like that plucky little bug, still loved around the world today and which was manufactured until 2003.
Some of the most beautiful cars ever built, even by today's standards, were designed in the 1930s and 1940s and to this day, fetch a high price whenever they are sold. This is not because of what drives them (although many engines were impressive for the time) but just generally due to those sultry curves that many classic models showed.
And what about those classic pre-war trucks? They still remain in demand.
This car quiz will test your overall knowledge in identifying those pre-1950s classics.
