Today, October 2, is National Name Your Car Day. According to National Day Calendar it was created by a TV personality named John Pertzborn from St. Louis in 1990. No one gives a name to their fridge or clothes dryer, but cars are unique among machines. They carry us to and from important life events. They’re our sanctuaries where we can sing and cry and shout in way we wouldn’t in front of others. We’re sad when we we have to let them go. We see them as trusty companions with distinct personalities. Cars are our sidekicks, our comrades, our confidants.
Do you give your cars names and, if so, what are they?
The most entertaining comment by next Monday will receive a prize. Scroll down to see the winner of last week’s QotW, “What would you put in a Mitsubishi theme park?“.
One could build a pretty enjoyable Mitsubishi theme park by combining the answers from last week. Guests would enter through Jonathon P.‘ giant triple diamond logo gate, passing through the triangle between the two lower diamonds. There would be CycoPablo‘s Ralliart-themed water slide, Brett‘s race/rally track, and Streetspirit‘s karting ride with FTOs and L300s.
The centerpiece ride would by dankan‘s corporate scandal coaster that has you questioning whether shoddy quality will kill you or not. Maybe there’ll be a terrifying drop that follows the company’s Nikkei stock charts. Any passage between floors would use f31roger‘s Mitsubishi elevators, while mascots would include Ryan S.‘s samurai and as Lakdasa suggested Jackie Chan would be the spokesperson.
The winner this week is brandon, who proposed three identical rides with the same fatal flaw:
Theme park would have rollercoaster rides with great body styles, bad oversteer and manual boost controllers. They would be called the Talon, the Eclipse and the Laser.
All of the rides are basically the same….have you grinning ear to ear until they blow up.
