CARandDRIVER.com just released their list of the funniest car names of all time. And while you may remember shaking your head at the inexplicably named Probe – of which CandD says Ford may have “had romantic, interstellar intentions when they pulled the name Probe out of their, um, heads, but it instead only evoked the snap! of latex gloves and extraterrestrial incursions” – most of the names on the list put it to shame.
A few of my favorites:
Isuzu Mysterious Utility Wizard (I hear Harry Potter drives one.)
Isuzu GIGA 20 Light Dump (Don’t even ask about the Heavy Dump.)
Mazda Bongo/Bongo Friendee/Bongo Brawny (Which proves what happens when car companies hire hippies in the marketing department.)
and the ever popular, Yamaha Pantryboy Supreme (A huge step up from the base Pantryboy.)
