I can just imagine the scene with the work shop manager and the company boss, company boss "Every car of quality is named after the company owner, Look at Ford, And Rolls Royce, and Bentley, and thats what we are going to do". Work shop manager "It'll never sell, I don't care what you think, Nobody will ever buy a car called bloody 'Trevor'". Everytime I hear that story I always think of a conversation along those lines. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot) http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
