    I would guess it has been decided but not announced.

    Why not "Led Zep Motors" while we're at it? ;)

    Lol. Probably not the best name though...the name Led Zeppelin came from a joke related to the possible formation of a band including Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, John Paul Jones, Keith Moon, and John Entwhistle...but either Moon or Entwhistle (depending on who was telling the story) said it would go over like a lead balloon. Page remembered the joke when they were coming up with the name for Led Zeppelin.

    A little useless trivia for Xmas Day. :D

    .

    Yeah ... you're right!

    Album : Jeff Beck Band 'Truth' 1968. Song : "Beck's Bolero' .

    The Jeff Beck Band had John Entwistle and Keith Moon ( who were going through some disillusionment with Townshend and The Who ) included in some of the Jeff Beck sessions. Beck really was 'all-in' for Keith Moon; and Moon turned and sought also to get Entwistle in on the action. Thus those two were part of the recording. Beck was one who could command any Bass player or Drummer he'd desire at any time; and he asked Moon, specifically.

    Bolero turned out terrifically ( later influencing truly big names in Rock ), and they toyed with arranging to have these players all in one band ( Beck, Page, Moon, Enwistle, Nicky Hopkins and Rod Stewart and possibly Ronnie Woods).

    THAT band is what would "Go over like a lead ballon/zeppelin " owing to the labyrinth of contractual problems each musician would bring to the final product.

    For some of us, that one song is and was legendary.

    I would say the perfect name is CFP ... C: Chrysler , F: Fiat , P: PSA
    Or the IAFMC : Italian American French motor company

    Hellcat Demon Spawn Motors :D - yeah, totally ridiculous, but when you read public comments on articles devoted to the subject of the merger, someone always remarks about having some PSA car with a Demon or Hellcat engine. I even replied tongue-in-cheek to one with the remark "Widebody." I think it was on a car so small that putting that on it would've pushed it into the next class width-wise.

    I truly hope that some way...somehow, the 300 (or a car like it) will be saved. If they don't want it to be a Chrysler anymore, they can always give it to Dodge and call it "Monaco"...featuring all of the top luxury bells and whistles, and slightly re-tuned versions of the Hemi and other engines.

    None of the corporations names, nor any brand will be in the corporation name, which, when you think about it, is good, because you won't have the stigma of any of the past residing within the name of the new company, not Fiat, not Peugeot, not Chrysler.

    Monaco althought Dodge could also reuse Polara, Diplomat or Coronet monickers.

    They could, but I can't see them resurrecting Diplomat or Coronet, except maybe Diplomat for livery service, but bringing back the Chrysler NYer and 5th Ave seem to make more sense for that audience. Coronet sounds to staid and officious for 21st Century America. Monaco and Polara maybe. Monaco sounds ritzy, and Polara sounds like a good name for an AWD midsize tall sedan.

    I think Stratus or Spirit would be good names for one as well.

    I was just thinking Intrepid and Avenger both seem like perfectly fine names too.

    First off, it’d make it easier to drop individual brands if their name isn’t a part of corporate name. Second off, it eliminates one source of unnecessary competition within a combined corporation...who’s name appears first? Whoever is listed first is more loved by mom.

    All the brands fit under one name. No one gets left out. No hard feelings. Everybody holds hands and sings kumbaya. And they live happily ever after. The end.

    Of course, holding hands and singing Kumbaya implies a campfire, and a campfire implies Jeep or perhaps a Power Wagon. :cool:

    :D

    Maybe it did in the 20th. Century and in ages past, but...

    Now, it's the 21st. Century, and a campfire implies untreated wood smoke entering the atmosphere, and increasing the world's carbon footprint.


    And besides...the singing of Kumbaya might be offensive to non-Chirstian religious minorities.

    CRIMINAL ! ! ! CRIMINAL ! ! ! :p:D
