TWQ: Car Names

In this week's TWQ (The Weekend Question), we are looking at good names for a new car.

You are a car designer about to name your new car. What will you call it? Think of a name (or pick as many as you wish) for whatever type of car it is (sports, SUV etc), and say why you're calling it that. Be as funny as you like!

My answers are:

My sports car could be:

The Velcro (sticks to the ground)

The Stargate (goes great distances in a short time)

The Ticketer (will collect a lot with the speed it does)

Now it's over to you...

gets from a to b

cheap to run

some how don't think these kinds of names will catch on, though the price of driving these days, more people will be looking for cars that cost less to run.

I'm going to be logical about my car namings. They will be named after the alphabet, A Car, B Car, etc etc. Of course I'm not that good of a car engineer so it'll take me a lot of tries to get it right, but boy when I do, you'll be amazed to see that S Car go!

Michele sent me.

I would drive the Queenmobile. No. Scratch that. My chauffeur would drive and I would wave.

Royal Red.
Bucket seats.

Do they have bucket seats in a royal car?

We could always have The Tardis! It goes anywhere in time and space!!!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You have good imaginations!

Batman said...

But I already named it the Batmobile! Okay how about Doombringer?

Mike said...

I would make an all electric car and name it "Up Yours Chevron!"
or maybe "Bite Me Texaco!"

Michele sent me.

The Popemobile in Rome might be named the Toyota Basilica! :D! (Yes, that was one of my best, wasn't it?)!

How about

- The "Getaway", a sports car for the harried criminal.

- the "Scrunch", a renaming of my own car in which I have to scrunch in the seat to fit.

- the "Fool's Errand", for a sports utility vehicle -- given gas prices
