Contest: Name A Zipcar

11/11/2009 12:02:00 AM

I got an email that Zipcar is looking for suggestions to name some of their new cars. And boy do I have the perfect name. There's a back story too.

So back in August, a big group of friends and I were headed to the Coldplay concert. We took two cars. My car was already at the Tweeter Center when I got a call from the other car. Their car broke down on the highway and they weren't sure they were gonna make it. Major bummer. Miraculously, 1/3 of the way into Coldplay's first song, my friends made it. How you ask? One person used his iphone to rent a zipcar at the nearest location they could find while another person called a cab to pick them up and take them there.

Name this Zipcar. Post your ideas for "M" names today and Wednesday. On Thursday, we'll pick ten of the best ones to grace ten of our Mazda 3's. Are those creative juices flowing yet? Okay, go for it.

Oh, so the name I'm thinking of? Monterey Jack (or Monty) after that dude from the Rescue Rangers. Because that zipcar definitely saved the day. Would have been even better if it didn't have to be an "M" name, then I'd suggest Zipper (the blue fly from Rescue Rangers). Anyway, if you'd like to make a suggestion of your own. Find Zipcar on Facebook and suggest away.

  2. Daniel Said,

    What was even better was that we were 5 people, and the only Zipcar I could find was a Mini Cooper... But it definitely got us there. Thanks, Zipcar!
