    Find specific text in cell that matches range, then display specific text

    I'm trying to find vehicle make and model in a cell containing a lot of text and then display that in the formula cell. For example if A1 is a paragraph that contains somewhere within it "Ford" & "Ranger". I want B1 to display "Ford" and C1 to display "Ranger". I have a list of vehicles makes (column A) and models (column B) on a seperate sheet.

    Watch out for 'normal' words that are also vehicle names but are not meant as such...

    "My seat in the plane to Ibiza was more comfortable than that in my Ford Ranger."
    You do want to find Ford Ranger, but you do not want to find Seat Ibiza
    When I say semicolon, u say comma!
