    Help naming vehicle

    A buddy of mine is into building and racing land speed vehicles. The folks who do this type of racing are a rare and exotic breed. It is my understanding that their sole reason for being on this planet is to interpret rulebooks for the purpose of exploiting a class with an odd combination that offers a promising stab at a world record. That being said, my buddy has built a Chevy S-10 pickup truck into which he installed a 4 cylinder Mercedes-Benz diesel engine.

    He is now trying to come up with a catchy name for this dry lakes racer.


    Seeing how you folks are all witty and mechanically inclined, I thought it would be fun to suggest some names. I promise I will give full credit to the person for the name.

    So... whatcha got?

    (Her name was Magill... she called herself Lill, but everyone knew her as Nancy...) Not sure how that popped to mind. Guess the mix...
