In reply to pimpm3:

Your dad needs to put that logo on t shirts and sell them on the interwebz. I would buy one.

Somewhat related, I have a friend who has a tatoo of a camel on his big toe.

I want to open a car dealership in this town in Austria. Really.

The wiki about the town

Of course, only an American would want to do this.

(edit) I was robbed! A perfectly good joke, ruined!

Down the road from me, there's a "T. Bonin Auto Body". I think that's actually his name, too.

In my home town of Bay Shore, NY on Long Island is Mars Auto Parts. Their tag line reads, "If you can't find it on Earth, you can find it at Mars."

Here in Vermont is a salvage yard with the name Rathe's salvage. Pronounced "rattysalvage" (all one word as is common around here).

Sweet, a Nedcar S40!

Since this thread has devolved, there used to be a canoe/other shop in Medina, Ohio called the Kilted Yak. It was on Rt. 18 just east of I-71 and they had the Ren and Stimpy guy as their company logo.

edit - They moved, but they are still around, according to Google.

I grew up with their commercials on the TV. Even as a kid my mind was blown. I mean, how much is it to get a name change, anyway?

I can't find the photo I took, but drive down I-76 east towards Akron, and you'll see a billboard on the far side of a field for a dealership named Laria. I don't remember if they sell Chevys or Fords, but the font and positioning makes the R look like a B.

Hershey has an amusement park in (no points for guessing) Hershey, PA.

Some friends of mine are coaster fans. They used to go on coaster trips all over the country. One of them needed permission from his wife to go on a trip to the Hershey amusement park. So, innocently, I asked:

"Come on, why don't you let them ride the Hershey Highway together?"

As God as my witness, I was making a joke, I didn't know that the road there actually was called the Hershey Highway.

(she laughed so hard she let them go on the trip)

Change it? Why?!! You only have to see that name once and you will never forget it! You can't buy better advertising.

There used to be a Liquor Box on Rubber Avenue in Naugatuck.

Loganville has a dealership called Maxie Price Chevrolet. Some car dealers seem to let their egos get the best of coming up with the company name; if my name suggested customers would pay through the nose, I'd have called it Loganville Chevrolet.

I only laughed at this because I saw it last year and I don't know how old it is, but out in the middle of nowhere there's a tiny little shack that sells auto supplies and does tire work called...Rock Auto (the guy's last name is Rock).

I like to picture that as a tiny shack with a really big barn behind it and a lot of truck traffic for some reason.
