Although some alphanumeric designations are pretty legendary (GTO, Z06, Z28, GT40, 240/280/300/350Z) I still prefer a proper name.

Name-wise, it depends. 'Tacoma' isn't exactly what I'd call prime taggage for a truck (I've been to the actual place a few times), even if the product is quality. Other names are a mystery. 'Camry'? 'Prius'? 'Accord'? I don't get it.

I like Alphanumeric, if they follow any type of logic...It can get out of hand though, look at the Harley FXSTBHDWGLDE examples...

Chevy Blazer (well, it could be classified as K-5 Blazer)

Dodge Ram (or Ram 3500)

I'm confused

Camaro Z28
Skyline R34 VSPEC

PsyKo that is a nice combo
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 8:21:16 PM EDT
well i have 1, not the 1 i would choose given the choice
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 9:31:57 PM EDT
I like a combo, with a name and then a model number, like Camaro Z28 as mentioned, or Mustang GT...

It is a name IMO:

Chevrolet = make

Camaro = model

Z28 = option package

I replied in the pole because I wanted to know what everyone else thought. However, as a honest attempt to add to the thread, here is what I think:

Names, eg, corvette, mustang, etc I like, However they have history. Would be pointless to rename a Mustang the 842gt because everyone associates the name with the car.

With a new car, I don't really care as they both do the same thing....allow someone to differentiate between two different cars, easier.

With model lines that have numbers, it is a bit more difficult to keep track of the car you are talking about because names are easier to remember than numbers (unless it's a well known vehicle....F150, etc). Also I think numbers work better when the numbers mean something: two vehicles of the same type (trucks that have different payload ratings, etc) from the same maker that have different abilities (f150 is a quarter ton, a f250 is a half ton, etc).

Firebird Formula
Firebird Trans Am
Firebird Trans Am WS-6

I don't really care either way. I have a 2005 GTO and listen to the geezers and the wannabes talk about it not being a "real GTO". I didn't buy the name, I bought 400 HP and a sub 14 second 1/4 mile. They could have named it the Pontiac Green Cheese for all I care as long as it's fast and comfortable and usable as a daily driver.

Z Driver's can call their cars "Fairlady" if they want to.....Nahhh,,, I think I will stick with Z
