Car names OR wtf does 'Fairmont' mean?
Seriously, where do they get the names from? I mean, are there market researchers out there that have discovered that the 'Probe' will please the male, mid-30's market or that the 'Ka' will appeal to dumb blondes who can't spell car?
And just what is a 'Fair Mont' or a 'Fair Lane' for that matter?
And wouldn't the Ford Falcon have been better off being called the Eagle, considering that a falcon is a relatively small bird and the car is a large size?
And wtf does 'Ghia' come from?
And just what do all of these names have to do with cars? I mean... Commodore I can understand, it's like the president of a club, right? So you're driving a leader of cars and that's obviously where they get the name 'Clubsport' from, but who thunk up Ghia and why?
No worse than Corona's... although, my moms did have a tendancy to overheat :D
