still not over it in South Bend
OT: Michigan Car Names
How about Bump?
why not Dilithium?
Or just "Lloyd"
This is what I was going to suggest. +1
The Saturn FucklION.
If you want to go with a name that others won't necessarily associate with Michigan, you could go with Biff or Bennie. Those are the two live wolverine mascots.
If, you wanted a really obvious one. You could go with Zoltan. He is the Space Emperor, thus Saturn falls in his domain.
don't force it, let it come to you
Then you could have had Gerald the Ford or Mercury Hayes.
I used to entertain myself at Michigan baseball games (strictly between innings of course) by referring to Derek VanBuskirk as Der-truck Van-Bus-car-k. He has the perfect name for syllable/vehicle substitution.
...scored Michigan's 1st touchdown.
The best thing like this was when someone said he named his fish DeShawn Swims. I still laugh at that
I'd name that Saturn Mercury (Hayes)
I saw someone driving today with the license plate "Blo6er" or something similar. It was a UM plate, too, with the block M. So it read M BLO6ER. I laughed, and wondered if it was someone from this site. It was in Grand Rapids, btw. Knapp and Pettis area.
That kind of looks like MColon at first glance....
The Anthony "CAR"ter, The BOmobile or the no artificial Woody Bucknut cracker, ok, that was a stretch, and most of my suggestions are old school based, but that is my input...
Mercury Hayes (or Merc for short) ... my favorite Michigan name of all time.
