Rocky Road Ice Cream would've been all right.
No one would want a Detroit. Ever.

My hubby would add, for most of these cars except for Honda and Mustang, “piece of shit.”

Joanne said...

and then there's Chevy Nova - they kept it. It sounded fancier in the Spanish. English truth in advertising - No Go

Dodge also kept Dakota. But without the North or South, how do we know which side it's on?

Darla M Sands said...

I want to drive an Emu! The comments made me chuckle, as well. But what's especially amusing is some of the lame monikers like the Ford Focus. In fact, I found a list. Heh... said...

If Ford had kept Mr. Ed, I'd have bought one.

I need a Jeep Thing-a-majig.

Ananka said...
