"Shaker" (sounds like a boy band to me)
"Tri Power" (sounds like a early 80s glam rock band)
"Cutlass" (kinda neat , olds might get pissed)
"Gas Tires and Oil" (nickname for the GTO)
"Positrac"
"Torqflyte" chrysler automatic tranny
"Side Oiler " Nickname for the 427 cube engine used in cobras

Roadrunner is a cool car name, but i dunno about a band name

i think its a cool sounding name, but unless were gonna be a band for truckers to listen to, its not that cool. and it doesnt quite fit with the picture their. i was thinking more of a muscle car reference, but an old cruiser reference or something would be really cool too. we actually thought of the 442's but just skipped over it. maybe it it were like 'the four forty two's' itd be cool too, idk.

I realize you're looking for an automotive theme. I knew a guy in a now-defunct band called "Jif and the Choosy Mothers." I always thought that was a perfect name for a garage band.

My own advice is not to use a number in your band's name. You never know who's going to show up and who won't. Putting "six" in the name is just asking for someone to quit.

Adumb
05-24-05, 04:19 PM
lol, i like jif and the choosy mothers. that ones classic. and back to the sixty specials, i did search it right. i didnt even notice he spelt it wrong, lol.

05-25-05, 03:34 AM
I have always wanted to make a band and name it "The Twisted Nipples"... Don't ask me why...
How about
"The Catylatic Converters", or "The Blown Fuses", or "Exhaust Pipes", or "2000 Horse Power", or "Nitrous Injectors", or "6 Speed Manual". I like that last one best...

I was in a band once called Vicious Cheese...:)

We could try to come up with the most obscure references that only car geeks would recognize: "Hy Cam and the Followers"

"The Muffler Bearings"

Or, my alltime favorite from 11th grade Driver Ed.. "Blood on the Streets".. or was it "Death on the Highway" ???

i really didnt like the carpenters myself , but one dudes parents had a carpenters record and a single of "afternoon delight" by some other band ...which is the one song int he world i hate most

but i really think that afternoon delight would have gotten us a record deal ....it had a neat sound to it .....our lead singer would scream the lyrics in the same tune and tone as "sweating bullets" by megadeath ....well acutally if you have heard of naplam death or deicide that was more our sound , i forget the other sings we did , but we alywas covered the lamest 70s dog crap out there in our style ....dan fogeolberg and the bee gees are some bands songs we covered ....

"men without hats" safety dance was the newest song we did ....

more than anything me on the wooden spoon banging against a metal bowl gave us our siganture sound ....

the neibors hated us ....

Yes Dimmit called today and I am picking it up tomorrow. I will have it for the meet. Also I tried to get Venom77 to notice the meet I don't know if you can get him to notice the meet since you are a moderator. He looks like he can't get email yet(I know why he can't). He posted something in the Escalade forum under custom grills thread. He is from Clearwater

me and my guitarist were disscussing flathead a bit. sadly, straight eights is taken as a band name, i was gunning for that one myself. nailhead would be a cool name too,
