List car names by the alphabet

Post by EVIL_XR4 » Sun Sep 21, 2008 9:14 pm

This has been posted on a bunch of forums and it was pretty fun to see some of the answers. I've seen a bunch of silly rules, but i see it like this:

See who can list a car model for every letter of the alphabet.

No repeats...if someone before you named a model, you can't reuse it.

ONLY models, not brands. Example; Lotus is a brand and not a model and therefore can't be used for L.

The model must START with the letter. Example; 350 "Z" is not ok for Z.

Of course, no internet search cheating, although i'm sure everyone will :lol:


Who's in?

Actually, a Cayman is a type of crocodile, and not a lizard.

But there's a guy here in town who drives his '54 Jaguar D-Type around town and on the freeway-- rather Diplomat-ic of him, don't you think? Even more fun than that Dart Demon I saw at Barrett-Jackson a couple of years ago.

I used Ultima for U and Q45 (Infinity) for Q. Those and X-Z seem to be the tough ones. Oddly enough i totally didn't think of using XR4Ti for X :roll:
