I thought it was more aimed toward model designations, and not as much brand names.

I'm a big fan of car names rather than alphanumeric designations. Lincoln MKZ? Jigga please.

You have to call the car something, Personally I prefer a name vs. numbers and letters.

Impreza not WRX or STI
Integra not RSX
Needs a new engine not RX8
Neon not SRT-4
