Not if they're based on a tube chassis and set up for a BBC/Glide like my buddy's is. Its downright sinister ! Lame? not so much.
Casey I dont think the name is bad. I mean, heterosexual men drive " RAM" and "LONGHORN" trucks and they don't seem to mind, right?
Got it. Even the Ranger name sounded better. And well Dodge has always had some great names for Trucks...
They could have went with the tried and true number system and called a Tree Hugger 1.5 Now that would catch on with the veggie crowd...
Okay let's face it the geeks that count the beans will think of anything to trim an once off a car to please the Auto makers and choose a name that either brings back memories and makes you look like was said before Or to get you to buy nostalgia.
They just mad a lame duck...a Dead duck...LOL!
And yes the only way you could make a maverick anything but lame was to rebuild it into a car it was never Ever going to be.
History shows it being the re Unused name tossed aside for the Mustang and the design was supposed to look way better but the settled for the grocery getter. Hemming's had a series on the Cars that never were and maverick was one of those cars.
GM is no better with Nova...No Go in espaniol .... and made up names like Camaro...It's a nice car hey won't deny it but...not a real name until the car came along.
