My daughter sent me this list earlier today

Fiat - Failed Italian Automotive Technology
Ford - For Only Rough Drivers
Hyundai - Hope You Understand Nothing's Driveable And Inexpensive
Volvo - Very Old Looking Vehicular Object
Porsche - Proof Of Rich Spoiled Children Having Everything
Opel - Old People Enjoying Life
Toyota - The One You Only Trust Always
Honda - Happy Owner Now Driving Away
BMW - Big Money Waste
Audi - An Unwanted Debt Invitation
Mercedes - Maximum Enthusiasm, Recurring Costs, Ego Developing Expensive Style

Which started me thinking while sitting in yet another traffic jam (7 hour working day with only 2.5 hours actual work and 4.5 hours travelling....)

I came up with Really Awfully Nice, Great Engineering, Rides Over Virtually Everything Reliably

Anyone got anything better?

Not exactly the same, but the DeTomasso Mangusta was apparently named thus, as it means mongoose, which eat/kill cobras (Ford Shelby Mustang)

Much like the Suzuki Hayabusa motorcycle. Kawasaki bought out the Ninja ZX-11 which, at the time, was the fastest production motorcycle so Honda produced the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird which was faster still. So along comes Suzuki and produces the GSX1300R which was even quicker still and named it the Hayabusa, Japanese for peregrine falcon, a bird that eats Blackbirds......

Toyota and Honda must have come straight out of the manufacturers sales brochures. They need addressing...
