I'm always fascinated by some of the names that auto manufacturers come up with for their cars and how they have transitioned over time depending on the changing sociological shifts.



For example.

Buick used to have names like WILDCAT, ELECTRA, RIVIERA, LeSABRE (especially cool growing up in Buffalo and being a Sabres fan) but for some unknown reason they shifted to pablum-like names like ENCLAVE, LUCERNE, VERANO.

I could go on and on becuase there are some real BEAUTIES out there.

Don't get me going on TOUAREG...

One I ESPECIALLY hate is the 'SHOOTING BRAKE'.

The Mercedes is such a cool car saddled with that CRAP name.

Do you get a leather helmet with goggles when you buy one?

You see where I'm going here.

We want to know which names do YOU think are the WORST of all time and tell us what they make you think of when you hear them? And suggest a BETTER name for the Mer4cedes car while you're at it...

Spies, discuss...



Is The 'SHOOTING BRAKE' The WORST Name EVER For A Car Or Can You Name One Or MORE That Are WORSE?
