    So translating names can generate nonsense for even your most beloved car

    There original language, what else ???

    Did you get the "escort Mexico" joke. There's probably some guy in Tokyo laughing that that name as a "prostitite" clearly wrong, it's the translation that's at fault.

    On estupid name doesn't make them all stupid.
    Nissan have had a history of using names for their large limos that imply comfort, status. So you get Cedric - an English name.
    You usually find if you take 2 minutes that the reason for the name is actually quite sound !!

    You also have to remember that the society in Japan loves its product base to be quirky. It's almost a Japanese trademark.

    tradition more than trademark.

    Names for good fortune has existed for millenia in the culture.

    Example :- how many have LG electronic products ?
    Did you own any sold under their previous western name of Goldstar ?
    LG stands for Lucky Goldstar the full company name.
    This is a company name which would bring great fortune to the business.

    Now we wouldn't call a company "make me a millionaire by the time I'm 25" becuse our culture isnt' like that.

    It's different, not stupid

    A variation of the 300ZX, right? I know the 350Z is called the Fairlady Z over their right now . Japan has some awesome names for their cars .
    No-so-proud owner of a 1986 Mustang LX with the 2.3L four. Anyone wanna buy it? $500. I'll post some pics and info in the user's rides section soon.

    I don't need anything too fancy, just something that can get me to the sun and back in 5 seconds flat.

    I wanna see a comparison test between the Saleen SR, Lamborghini Gallardo, Ford GT, and Ferrari Challange Stradale. Anyone wanna help me with that? I already know who'd win, though ;).
