If you spend a little time and money I bet that guy could be found. You have to decide if it is worth it. You could hire a bird dog and I bet get some answers. When you catch him I would love to see the expression on that guy's face.

Take a look at the 2. I still think it's a Focus based on the dual center exhaust and upward 'smile' of the rear.



Mazda 3



Focus ST




Shooters Car

I say Mazda. Tail lights and rear rooftop antenna is what seals the deal for me.

I lean Focus too, but license plate area looks wrong for both compared to stock pics.

2. These were not rednecks. Charlotte is the largest urban area between Atlanta and DC.
Very true, but a 10 minute drive most directions out of Charlotte yields the middle of the by god south. Source... I am from NC and lived in Charlotte for many years when I was younger.

Side mirror and angle of it's mount is a good clue.
Also the lack of a rear diffuser suggests to me more Ford Focus than Mazda 3 but difficult to tell.

I think you're right. License plate location is another good clue.

It's probably not going to help ID the car. It's probably stolen and they were a couple of drug runners.

Freaking scary what kind of world we live in.
