Hi all,
Sometimes, when you speak of a vehicle (car or truck) in English, you refer to it by its brand alone (the Ford/Dodge/Audi/etc.).
In my example: "He was the driver of the Ford."
How would you say this in Spanish (supposing I have already mentioned earlier in the text whether it was a car or truck)?
Could you say el Ford if it was a carro and la Ford if it was a camioneta?
Or do you have to say "la camioneta Ford" and el carro Ford?
Thanks very much

    Very kind of you both, micafe and DILETANTE. Thanks for confirming that for me. The later it gets the more I'm not sure what sounds correct anymore....
