Unlike our main unusual names of towns in the U.S. page,
U.S. towns with CHRISTMAS or holiday season names,
U.S. towns with names associated with HALLOWEEN,
U.S. place names pivotal to the TV series LOST,
and town names associated with VALENTINE'S DAY or romance,
this page focuses exclusively on place names
that are now, or were at some point in
the past, also used by manufacturers as the
name of a make or model of automobile. Some
of these cars are no longer produced (in some
cases, that's a blessing), and frankly, some
of the towns have dwindled to just a few
buildings. But they're all actual places, whose
names have come to mean something altogether
different in our automotive-obsessed society.
Additional location information is offered for
smaller towns that might be less familiar to
Each of these cities, towns and place
names has been officially recognized as
a populated place by the U.S. government.
PUNCTUATION NOTE: The U.S. government does
not use possessive apostrophes in U.S.
place names. Even when proper punctuation
would call for the use of a possessive
apostrophe in a city or town name, they
are not used. When the name of local
businesses, or street names incorporate
the town's name, that specific usage may
utilize an apostrophe.
NOTE: It is not our intent to suggest that there
is any connection between these cars and towns.
Nor do we mean to imply that the towns were
named for the cars, or vice versa. Although
there are several vehicles that derived their
names from locations, this certainly is not true
in many cases.
