Thread: Perfect fit car names.

  1. #1

    Perfect fit car names.

    OK, so we have seen the Bad Car Names thread - how about a flipside look?

    My favourite car name is the Accord. An accord is a compromise, and the 2009 Accord is an...accord...between a Cadillac Fleetwood (length), a BMW (style) and a Honda (badging, reliability).

    The two runner ups are Mustang and Eldorado.

    Your nominations?
    If we should give Abraham Lincoln credit for uniting America, then we should give Adolf Hitler credit for uniting Europe, as both men used the same methods for the same goals.

    I always loved the way Eldo-ra-do rolled off the tongue. And in its glory days (late 1960s-mid '70s) the car lived up to the name!

    Thunderbird is another favorite.

    I also really like DeTomaso Pantera, Jensen Interceptor, 'Cuda ...

    Bellaire, Biscayne

    and Mercury -

    The Montego, Cougar

    Just to name a few...

    I've always liked the names Brookwood, Kingswood, Parkwood and Yeoman; they just sound right for a station wagon. I like the names Delray and Roadmaster too.

    Kingswood was a great name - surpassed only by Vista Cruiser!

    The Apperson Jack Rabbit was a sporty little car in the early 1900's. A car built locally in the teens, or a little earlier was the Simplicity Six. It was sold under several names and really was a lot simpler than other cars. It just wasn't marketed very well and was undercapitalized.
    Honk if you love Jesus.

    Text if you want to meet him.

    Of course, the best ever vehicle name is Vincent Black Shadow!
