New car names

Seems like there's this weird thing about naming cars after disasters. I don't quite get it. There's the Chevy Avalanche, for example, and Toyota was going to come out with the Celica Tsunami (which I guess they recently decided against, thank goodness!).
Anyway, Bill and I came up with a few more "suggestions":

Chevy Plague
Ford Famine
Kia Rain of Locusts
Acura Infestation
Hyundai Massacre
Mercury STD

Actually, we came up with more, but I can't remember them now.
If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to add them!

How about Pontiac Pestillence?

But the problem with saying anything about a GM car is that it starts getting too close to reality to be funny. I will never forget our Chevy Citation when I was ~7 to ~12 years old. Keeping in mind that it was my parents who bought that car... because of what I witnessed I will never in my life buy a GM car. I would much rather walk or take the bus. Real smart move, GM!

Dare I say it . . . the Volkswagen Holocaust?

OK, let's not go there, how about the Ford Global Warming?
