Lusting For Odd Dealership Names

Recommended Posts

*

Auto dealerships count on catchy, unique & creative marketing campaigns to attract customers. Sometimes, the name of the place works wonders. For instance, a dealership named LUST!
What odd dealership names have you seen?
Best lessons are from your own mistakes:

Never seen a odd name dealer. And GM now names dealerships by the town they are in.

 

As to mistakes, that is why it is said we grow old to fast and smart too slow.

Yep, I've seen that ... dealerships (not just GM, tho!) being named by the town name. Guess that makes sense ... better marketing & gives people a better understanding or idea of location. HOWEVER ... it takes away the "personal feel"....

 

Hmm ... I like that "grow old too fast & smart too slow". Hadn't heard/read that before, but ... it is true.

LOL! Well, I didn't intend to make you feel old; I apologize if I did!

 

I'm 42 ... some consider that ancient, others consider that young. Given my open heart surgeries, I feel more like 102. ;)
