Going My Way?

The new model cars have unfamiliar names.  Gone are the power names like Starfire, Comet, Astro, and the the cat names like Cougar, Wildcat, Lynx. Impala. Ford has even given up names like Model T, Model A, and V8.

AOL has listed the ten least expensive cars available. Here's a quiz for you. I show you the model name, but hide the manufacturer.  Slide your mouse over the space after the model name so see who made it. (Ann, left click the mouse first.)

Fit..................Honda

Cobalt............Chevrolet

Yaris..............Toyota

Focus.............,Ford

Accent............Hyundai

Rio.................Kia

Versa..............Nissan

3 ....................Mazda

Reno.,.............Suzuki

Aveo 5 ...........Chevrolet

I only knew the Ford Focus and the Honda Fit -- the rest are new on me.

Although, I saw the Nissan last spring when the Regional Sales Monsters were demoing it to sales-critters at the local dealership. Cute little spacious car. Just didn't remember the name.

Amazig how well it works when I follow the directions.

I knew the Ford Focus (probably from t.v. ads) but that was it.  Never hear of the others.

And who would call a car 3?
