that one made me laugh as well. Though I'm pretty sure that's not what Ford's marketing people where thinking, so the clue is a little misleading. Might as well give the hint for Sienna as "hot blonde actress named Miller," charger as "someone who doesn't carry a lot of cash," or Nova as "Spanish for 'doesn't go'"

Had to count out the elements to figure out Cobalt. I missed the Dodge Charger and the Honda Odyssey. Which is very sad because I own an Odyssey... ouch.

Can you imagine how popular Oldsmobile would be if they manufactured my incorrect answer? "Hey, what kind of car do you drive?" "Oh, I drive an Oldsmobile Scimitar."

Oh, I tried this one too... There's really a British car named Scimitar, but it's a Reliant so I got things mixed up.

Hadn't heard of the poisonous snake one, so I tried "rattler" before realizing that a model with that name wouldn't sell very well.

I had a "rattler" at one time, but for some reason Chevrolet insisted on calling it a Corvette.

well I can think of quite a few you have the ones that indicate wealth or strength like, gold, platinum, titanium.

I can see mercury, krypton, neon aswell. Well and anything that seems spacey or mythological would work I guess.

And sciency... like nobel would work, not sure about nobelium though

Mercury was once an American brand, and Dodge used to make the Neon, so you aren't far off there!

This was surprisingly hard with so many American brands - even for manufacturers who sell in the UK as well, quite a few of the cars are brands I've not heard of.

I'm also terrible at remembering what cars are called, so maybe that had something to do with it.

Try part 4 made by me. Lots of international brands on that. Though, still probably not many you've seen in the UK. There's a big world out there.

Yeah, Chevy and Dodge have very little presence in Britain/Europe and Oldsmobile and Lincoln have none. Does make it a tad harder for those of us who aren't American.

Vipers are venomous, not poisonous. Venom is produced in special glands and must be injected to cause harm. Venoms can be swallowed or applied to the skin with no ill effect (as long as you don't have any ulcers or open wounds whence the venom can enter the bloodstream).

Poisons on the other hand act when inhaled, swallowed, or touched. Poisons are often produced in large areas of the body such as the skin (not a specialized gland).

Poison dart frogs are poisonous because you become sick when you touch their skin. In contrast, certain spiders, snakes, and jellyfish are venomous because they have specialized methods to inject their toxic substance under your skin.

Thank you. Also, some keelbacks are probably the only truly "poisonous" snakes since they are harmful if eaten due to poison they themselves ingest through their diet of toads. Some are also venomous, but they're rear-fanged Colubrids, not front-fanged snakes like Vipers.

Not that it's wrong or inaccurate or needs to be changed but broncos aren't necessarily wild just untamed. Wild insinuates that the animal is owed by no one and is free ranging. There are lots of horses that are owed by someone and live on fenced in property but have never been broken.

Venomous snake. Remember, if you bite it and die, it's poisonous, if it bites you and you die, it's venomous. ;-)

Apart from Ford, you don't see too many American cars in Australia where Japanese cars dominate. Dodge and Chevy are virtually unheard of and as far as I know Oldsmobile never had a presence here at all. Still the clues meant it wasn't too tricky.
