If you are into cars, then PBS and this quiz are for you.

“Henry Ford: American Experience” airs at 8 p.m. today on WFWA, Channel 39.1. Ford's Model T revolutionized the auto industry, and the documentary gives an insight into the man who founded Ford Motor Co., instituted the assembly line and investigated his employees (sounds familiar considering recent government revelations!).

2. KITT was this kind of car on “Knight Rider.”

3. Simon Templar's car was what on “The Saint?”
