Domestic Car Quiz

Just thought I'd throw together a few questions for the hell of it. Have Fun!

1. This was the first front wheel drive car to be made by an American manufacturer since the 1935 Cord 810. What was it?

2. The Corvette was the first American car with fiberglass bodywork. What was the second?

3. What American manufacturer produced the worlds first V12-powered car?

4. Where Cadillac got it's name from.

5. The GT40 was the result of Henry Ford 2's failed attempt to buy what famous car company?

I don't know the others, but 4. Where Cadillac got it's name from. Cadillac was a surname of a French noble. I believe it was a major family in France, I don't know what century it was, 14th or 13th I believe.
