Guess the car

Post by DereX » Wed Oct 03, 2007 12:40 am

So I finally broke down and bought a new car and since I'm bored you guys get to try and guess what I bought. You can ask questions and I will answer.

Q: Is it a Merkur?
A: No.

Hmmm...

Owned by ford but not a ford.
Not euro/Not domestic.
2 doors.
Non FWD.

Based on the above, I would think it would be some kind of a Mazda?
