Hi all,

In keeping with the morals of this forum, I ask you all to post your "what they stand for" comanies and their abbreviations..

It's been joked, that "Ford" is really an abreviation for "Found on Road Dead". and a few others I know:

Fiat: Fix it again, Tony!

Pontiac: Poor old Nick thinks it's a cadillac

And I'm sure there are many many more. and not just for cars!
