Thursday Twister: Animal Style
Welcome to another edition of DT’s Thursday Twister, the guessing game where each week you have to guess what the game will be…so this week we go back to a typical Twister challenge. Find all the cars named after animals. Easy…right?
I’ll kick this off with an easy one — the Ford Mustang which shares its name with a type of horse.
Standard contest rules are as follows:
1. Only one car per comment (be sure to hit the refresh button on your
browser before you post, in case someone else has posted since you loaded
the page). Do not nest the replies, just reply to the main post — if
you reply to someone else’s comment it should be in reference to his
comment and not another submission.
2. The contest will end in on Sunday, Dec 13, 2015.
3. One submission per make/model.
4. Each car must be a production model.
5. No anonymous submissions — pick a name with the Name/URL dropdown.
Toyota Tercel, obviously.
Tercel: "the male of a hawk, especially of a gyrfalcon or peregrine"
I didn't expect to learn such a delightful piece of information today. My grandfather had the resources to drive nearly any car he wanted but he stuck with his Toyota Male Gyrfalcon through it all.

Oops sorry, wrong Google search. I meant this kind of Cougar:

Go to your room, Kaibeezy. You broke DT, again….

The most famous of all:
That is the only Marlin in my memory…turquoise.
Stout Scarab… quite possibly the first crossover…
Sunbeam, Alpine Tiger
Impala and Malibu
I named them both because in the next generation they may look almost alike.
Plymouth Road Runner (Car-toon with Beep Beep horn, not the desert bird)
AMC Mogwai…er, Gremlin

My son and I can't believe no one has yet brought up the finest motor car in the world: Jaguar.
And since it is well past my bed time imma double post and share the Dodge Hellcat:
Sable (where you at, Hunsbloger?)
Pantera (what car has a better engine compartment?)
Compartment or trunk ?
