    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I think that would be a great name for a little orange car.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Hahaha! I should have known this would require a new thread. Naughty me.

    I like orange blossom. hmmm.

    I also like Tequila Sunrise.
    or tequilla amanecer!

    Edit: I should mention our other cars' names are Toaster and El Burro.


    Edit: I am also inclined to name it after some kind of orange insect but cannot find an appropriate one.

    Though not orange nor an insect, may I suggest Zephyr?

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Ahihihi! Cuteness.

    I'm not sure about the word "bug" in the name. It reminds me too much of a VW

    How about "Clemintine" like the cute little orange from Spain thats in season now.

    Hmm.... I do love parrots. Maybe a small orange parrot would be nice? So much to consider.
