To the Editor:
The letter from Bob MacGregor in the June 19 issue ("Model names spoke for themselves") could have been written by me.
In April, while attending the 2006 New York International Auto Show, I turned to my colleague and said: "The names all involve numbers. How are you supposed to remember which is which? Doesn't anyone get creative anymore?"
I miss the days of the wonderfully inspiring car names.
Come on, Audi, BMW, Mazda, Lexus, Saab, Suzuki, Scion and Volvo -- show some imagination. The public doesn't know who makes the S6, SX4, 9-3 or C70. But they sure know who makes the Mustang!
