Someone forwarded me the following quick, fun game this morning.  It tests one's knowledge on branding in the auto sector.  Take it for a spin and share how you do in the comments section.

I faired pretty well, 17 of 20, but I'm skeptical that the Toyota Corolla is the best selling car of all time. I suspect that title would go to something like the Ford Taurus...king of the rental cars. I'm going to sue.

I can live with the other two that I missed, both were tag lines. Heck Hummer hardly even counts as a brand. I don't think that they've run an ad in years.  I should have known the Lexus tagline though.

Anyhow, it's a fun distraction.

Toyota Corolla is the best selling brand in the world. Just go to bangkok, Mumbai, Delhi, Japan and pretty much any other place. :)

Yep, I just confirmed that the Corolla is indeed the #1 car of all-time.  It passed the Beetle a couple of years ago.  Darn, I should have known that one.

18/20  But I would have picked VW Beetle as the best seller of all time if I hadn't read the blog first.  Got Kia's color wrong and missed one of the taglines.

I know most of the car logos shown. The rest, i am not really familiar with. I am a mazda owner, and usually I look up on some parts at www.carpartswholesale.com and most of the time I also see other car manufacturer logos.
