And I'm 0 for 4 on FJ! None of the clues added up to anything for me. What does a Corvette have to do with France?
Louis Chevrolet was French.
More to the point, corvette is a French word. The diminutive -ette is a dead giveaway.

"Casamigos" sounds Spanish, doesn't it?
[citation needed]
Nope. You don't get to pull the "sounds like X language is ambiguous" card here. You claim to be fluent in Spanish. The name is an obvious portmanteau of "casa" and "amigos."

I don't think you said anything wrong, either, except that if Austin has died and been reincarnated, he couldn't be already as old as Donna. Perhaps he can't even have been born yet, depending on when ensoulment takes place. Some time after middle school at the earliest. The penguin wins again.
