We'll Show You 2 Cars, You Tell Us Which Is Worth More

By: Rachel Bailey

If you have even a passing interest in classic American cars, you may assume you can tell—at a glance—whether one muscle car is more valuable than another. Comparing cars and trucks can be a bit trickier, but you’ve got this… right?

You might be surprised!

This quiz lets you compare a 1954 Dodge Power Wagon Crew-Cab pickup to a 1970 Dodge Hemi Challenger R/T, a 1964 Buick Riviera GS to a 1991 GMC Syclone, and a 1956 Chevy Bel-Air Convertible to a 1971 Chevy C10 Custom Pickup, and the answer to “which is worth more?” for each may shock you.

Along the way, you’ll learn some fun and little-known facts about some of the most sought-after cars and trucks in the U.S.A., from the Pontiac Parisienne to the Hudson Hornet.

Would you recognize the sleek De Tomaso Pantera L as an Italian car with a Ford engine sold in the U.S. exclusively by Lincoln dealerships? And with these unusual origins, could the Pantera be even more valuable than the collector-favorite Chevy Nova?

With a 427-cubic inch V-8 engine, the 1964 Ford Galaxie puts out some serious horsepower—but how does it compare to a product from the Ford Motor Company’s luxury arm, the 1964 Lincoln Continental?

So you think you can value classic cars (and trucks) at a glance? Let’s see whether you can reach Master status!

Rachel Bailey is a lifelong puzzle enthusiast and a pharmaceutical rep who grew up in Cool Springs, Ohio. She studied public relations at Northern Kentucky University before moving to Nashville, Tennessee where she currently resides with her husband Rick. Rachel works for Cumberland Pharmaceuticals, a specialty company that develops branded prescription products. Rachel grew up in a home surrounded by three sisters and two brothers. Always looking to be challenged, the family spent many nights at the dinner table working puzzles of all sorts. Throughout high school, Rachel participated in various sports, however, she always had a passion for completing puzzles with her family. Her love for puzzles continued well into her college years as she joined various groups who shared her interest. Rachel always felt that puzzles challenged her brain, yet found the activity to be extremely calming at the same time. Her desire to be challenged and her desire to meet new people led Rachel to a Pub Trivia Quiz at Geeks Who Drink in Nashville, where she met Rick. The two were on opposing teams that night, but after a few drinks and a few dates, the two became partners and have been inseparable. They now travel to participate in weekly trivia games and have organized multiple trivia game nights in their own home. You guessed it; puzzle sorting has now been replaced with trivia at holiday and family gatherings. When the couple isn’t playing trivia, they like to make the most out of their spare time and have most recently taken up the game of chess. Rachel says it takes her back to her childhood because, like puzzles, chess can be played while sipping tea and it helps evoke stimulating and meaningful conversation with those you love.
