Meaning of car names:

Pontiac - Acronym for "Poor Old Nitwit Thinks It's A Cadillac."

Ford - Acronym for "Found On Road Dead" or "Fix Or Repair Daily."

Fiat - Acronym for "Fix It Again, Tony" or "Fix It Another Time."



And back in the nineties, when Volkswagen's quality had reached its nadir, "Fahrvergnugen," which meant "the pleasure of driving," was rumored to have meant "the pleasure of driving your VW to the repair shop and getting a free Toyota loaner."
