You Are What You Drive

While my NISSAN MARCH is in the shop getting prettied up after the accident, they gave me this 660 cc mini-car to drive.

It is called Wagon-R. I don't know what the R stands for. This morning, I asked my neighbor who drives one but even he didn't know.

I have been noticing these funny Japanese car names.

HONDA has LIFE, LIFE DUNK, THATS, JAZZ, LOGO....
TOYOTA has FUN CARGO, DELIBOY, DUET, SPARKY....
SUZUKI with CAPPUCCINO, MIGHTY BOY..... NISSAN with MOCO, FAIR LADY...
MAZDA has one called LA PUTA!!!! (OK, it's really LAPUTA).
DAIHATSU has LOCKY, BOON, COO, CHARADE and NAKED!
MITSUBISHI has TOWN BOX, TOPPO, DEBONAIR & DIGNITY....

"Hey, do ya wanna go for a ride in my MOCO?"

"Check out my 1986 DELIBOY!"

"Ohhhh~~~ Dude! Your MIGHTY BOY is SWEEEEEEET!!"

There are people who get paid for coming up with these names. I want that job! They don't have to MEAN anything to the consumers as long as they SOUND cool. Here's a short list of what MY contributions would be.

HONDA PUPPY
TOYOTA TYRANT
SUZUKI PIMP WAGON
MAZDA PASTY
DAIHATSU CHAOS
SUBARU CALZONE-X
MITSUBISHI STD-BOX
NISSAN CRISIS

It's not a car but the brand of toilet paper found in my company's bathroom is LIFE YELL.
:cool:

Do ya think?? Yeah... I thought NISSAN CRISIS was pretty darn brilliant myself...:sick:
 
hmmm I dont know...

"Hey wanna come ride my MIGHTY BOY" I would suspect has a double entendre attached to it XD

As for the Subaru CALZONE-X....rofl, the only times I've seen Calzones are in Italian restaurants.

I would however get a SUZUKI PIMP-WAGON ^_^
