Seeing the announcement of the new Kia Proceed at the Paris Motor Show got me thinking about some of the more idiosyncratic names that manufacturers have given their cars.
- Peugeot Partner
- Mazda Bongo Friendee which counts double as it is also sold as a Ford Freda.
- Honda HR-V Joy Machine
- Mazda Carol
- Mitsubishi Mirage Cyborg
- Nissan Laurel Medalist
- Toyota Masterace
- Chrysler Imperial Parade Phaeton
- Dodge St. Regis – many of these were smashed up in the filming of the Blues Brothers, one of my favourite movies.
- Dacia Duster
- Buick Park Avenue
- Chevrolet Royal Mail
- Pontiac Star Chief Executive
You’ve probably noticed that most of these cars are of japanese or american origin. Luckily, if you feel drawn to drive a car with an exotic name like one of the above, there is one insurer who will have heard of it! With great rates for japanese grey imports and american dream cars too, we can give you a great quote on your strangely named pride and joy.
Skoda have just announced something called a “Joyster”!
