Can anyone explain to me how a car that I just bought on 05/25/2013 was supposedly built in the future (07/03/2013)? Is my car part of some experimental time travel program from Ford?

3/7/13, not 7/3/13, that's the European date format for March 7 2013.

The european date format is day.month.year not month/day/year
