We've got more "BEASTS" than the zoo!

By CorvairJim

The_Dude posed an interesting question as a comment on a challenge earlier today: Just how many cars on Motortopia are called "The Beast" (or some variation thereof). I had thought about that question myself on occasion, so I took it on myself to find out. By searching keyword "Beast" on the "Cars" tab, I came up with close to 200 hits, 152 of which had the word "Beast" somewhere in the name. That's right: 152 BEASTLY CARS ON MOTORTOPIA!!! Of those, 32 are simply "Beast", while 80 more are "The Beast" (Unfortunately, one of the beasts has shed this mortal coil: "The Beast R.I.P." Also we've got two "The Beast II"s, one "Da Beast" and one "Tha Beast").

Some of the "Beasts" are quite colorful - we've got seven "Blue Beast"s, four "Black Beast"s, three are green, two each red and yellow, and one each pink, teal, and burgundy. We even have a "Blueberry Beast"!

Several members rides have "Beast" somewhere in the name, like current Challenge participant Camela 'The Beast' Camaro. In no particular order, we have an "Inferno Beast", a "Mean Beast", a "She Beast", a "Little Beast", a "Jeep Beast", "The Hell Beast", and two "Mini Beast"s. One member even has "Beauty and the Beast, all in one Package"!

By make, it seems that Chevy owners think their cars to be the most Beastly - There are 59 Chevy Beasts! Ford is next with 32... 33 if you include a Saleen-badged car, and 34 if you also include an R/C Monster Truck! From there, the Beasts go as follows: Pontiac - 15, Dodge - 13, GMC - 4, Jeep - 3, two each for BMW, Chrysler, Honda, Mercury, and Toyota, and one each from Acura, AMC, BMC/Mini (That's the original one, not the current car), Lancia, Mazda, Mercedes Benz, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Porsche, and Saturn. Last but not least, there's also a Beastly Kawasaki motorcycle!

I guess a lot of people think alike!
It' is a funny coincidence that I noticed this as well one day and said to myself Sheesh! How many beasts are there!
My question has now been answered! Thank You! lol !

Which brings me to thinking maybe coming up with a unique name for peoples rides isn't all that easy?
Or is it?

Another good question might be.

"How did you come up with the name for your car and why" !
Is there a story behind the name?
Or just a name people thought of from the top of there head and did not give it much thought at all.

Surprisingly there was no "Beast of Burden" named car (Rolling Stones song) wink image
