GM quiz (from How Stuff Works)

http://auto.howstuffworks.com/general-motors-quiz.htm

I normally do pretty good on the quizes at that site but I only got a 6/10 on this one. Couple of interesting little factoids in there.

Some of those questions were a little out there. I scored a 70%, but I wouldn't say that I only know 70% of GM history. In any case, there's some really interesting stuff in there.
