beautiful Sam..absolutely beautiful...a testament to the brilliance of this as a marketing medium is that my parents called me after the exhibition and the first thing my dad told me about was "the outlandishly done up classic car with the crazy sound system from JBL"
They also mentioned the long haired dude who "seemed to have something to do with the whole thing"........i guessed as much it was you !!!

Sam

Why are all the preferred names 'western'? Shouldnt we try to get a localized name for this vehicle?

I'm seriously short of ideas but how about something like Agnirath (YUK) or words to that effect. Make sure you take the rath out of the name or LK Advani will want it for his next election campaign.

Besides like you said, most Hindi Names are corny. Except Don.

OK guys-

It has been decided by the powers that me (heh heh) that the cadillac will be parked at the Autocar Performance show. From the 23rd to the 26th November. (At bandra-kurla, if you are interested)

I need a name!!! Come on ya, get serious, please stop this jalebi, jaaneman basanti, dhanno & umrao jaan.

I like JBLoki, but it's too clever. The public wont get it.

How about the JBL - "FLAME ON!!" or "The FLAMER" Does anyone like that? I like The Flamer, goes in tune with THE EYEBALLER.

I am very inclined to call it THE FLAMER. Can I get some approval, or better names? Please guys. Thanks.


LBM, I actually like JBL Bass Maker (Makker? lol)
Maybe when we make a full SPL banging car we can call it JBL Bassmaker (pronounced like pacemaker lol)

You want her to be flam(e)boyant huh?

Going by the fire theme, how about Vulcan? He was the one who could do anything with fire. But then she would become a he.

Fiorino? Flam(e)ingo? Pyro? Firefly? Comet?

And when you get an SPL car done, let's call her Bassmati. har, har rofl
