More thoughts on names

When I first saw a Chevy Avalanch I figured it was designed mainly for going downhill.

When the Toyota Highlander came out I thought how unfortunate it was that they sold so many of them considering there could be only one.

When the Honda Oddyssey came out I decided that if I bought one it would have to be a 2001 model.

When the Sienna came out I recall thinking, "If it caught fire you'd have to call it a "burnt sienna".

If they ever make a car called the Columbia I'm going to listen very closely to them and at the first sign of that telltale "bell like noise" I'm going to warn the owners their heat shields are coming loose.

If they ever make a car called the Challenger it will probably be plagued with leaking O-rings around its fuel injectors.

This all reminds me of that episode of "Newhart" where Larry explains that he and Darryl and Darrell were going to be spending the summer one the Riviera, by which he literally meant they'd be sunning themselves on top of a Riviera.
