Some magazine made a poll few years ago. The question was just about people's favorite car name. Alfa Romeo Giulietta won. Now let's have something like that here. You can say 3 top places of you.

Moco? Now that's comedy (It means booger in spanish) :)<p>I don't care for car names one way or another, Though I love the traditions of naming cars after a specific topic, Like Maserati's that used to be named after winds, Lamborghini's that are named after spanish fighting Bulls, Etc.<p>I do love a few Brand Names. Audi rolls off the tounge quite nicely in most languages. For some strange Reason I've always loved the name Hispano-Suiza.

Vantage<p>And I hate how the new V8 is called the Vantage because it's not a Vantage. Vantage used to mean top of the line and high performance. An extreme machine. They're destroying a good name with a great history.

COUNTACH... apparently in Italian that word is slang for "HOLY SHlT"<p>The rumor, according to something i saw on tv.. said the first time the finished car was driven outside, someone who saw it.. yelled "Countach".. a Lambo Exec overheard it.. and the rest is history, thats how the car got the name.<p>Sounds kinda crazy.. but its a cool story if true.
