CSS Sass Basics (retired) Advanced Sass Concepts Interpolating and if/else

The mixin should use the value in $make as the name of a new class. The class should have a 1px solid black border.

What am I doing wrong here?!

@mixin cars($make, $color) {
    $make {
      border: 1px solid black;

You forgot about the interpolation for the class name. Check out video at time index 1:20 for the proper Sass syntax.

I'm assuming you had your 'a-ha' moment by now, but just in case, the interpolation needs to be added, like what James said.

@mixin cars ($make, $color) { .#{$make}{ border: 1px solid black; } }

Try specifying the black color as #000 and see if it likes it any better.

border: 1px solid #000;
