Every once in a while, usually while on a car trip, in addition to playing geography games, I like to play a game called Made-up Car Make Models. That's a bad name for a game. But you know what i mean, coming up with good car model names. I'm sure everyone does this. Sonata, Elantra, Camry. Who comes up with this? I'd like to know. It's kind of an exercise in creative word play for myself. Free play. It feels like a word game. What words do i know? What words will come out of my mouth? Let's find out. It's a fun game.
I don't know a lot of car names. Sean knows more than I but he's not like BIG into cars either. And I'm convinced I could come up with some really good ones. We were driving through red rock country and i felt inspired. I ran them by Sean and he helped confirm whether or not it already existed and also vetoed what he saw fit. I wrote down what I came up with and now you get to see it. If any of you works in the Office For Naming Cars, that'll be one million dollars, please. I should apply to work there and if that doesn't work out, I'll send my application to Office For Naming Crayon Colors.
Here they are:
Capitan. Like El Capitan. But maybe Captain, as well.
Spotlight-- i like this one. Who wouldn't want to be in a Spotlight?? Tagline I just came up with!
Endeavor (shuttle name)
Bamboozle-- Sean's tagline for this car: Crappy car no one will buy!
Standby-- ha ha. Sean's tagline: The car you don't use but just in case.
Jameson. Fancy car. The car your driver would drive you in.
Radon-- Sean's tagline: it'll kill you.
I tried to go for alliterative names but apparently, according to my crusty notebook here, i only came up with one: Chevy Showdown. Pretty good though, right.
Sunrise (Sean said del sol was already one)
Access. --Sean's tagline: it lets you get there.
And the last one I came up with and apparently the best one since i circled it:
