Automotive-related place names in the U.S.

Unlike our main unusual names of towns in the U.S. page, U.S. towns with CHRISTMAS or holiday season names, U.S. towns with names associated with HALLOWEEN, U.S. place names pivotal to the TV series LOST, and town names associated with VALENTINE'S DAY or romance, this page focuses exclusively on place names that are now, or were at some point in the past, also used by manufacturers as the name of a make or model of automobile. Some of these cars are no longer produced (in some cases, that's a blessing), and frankly, some of the towns have dwindled to just a few buildings. But they're all actual places, whose names have come to mean something altogether different in our automotive-obsessed society.

Additional location information is offered for smaller towns that might be less familiar to the reader.

Each of these cities, towns and place names has been officially recognized as a populated place by the U.S. government.

PUNCTUATION NOTE: The U.S. government does not use possessive apostrophes in U.S. place names. Even when proper punctuation would call for the use of a possessive apostrophe in a city or town name, they are not used. When the name of local businesses, or street names incorporate the town's name, that specific usage may utilize an apostrophe.

NOTE: It is not our intent to suggest that there is any connection between these cars and towns. Nor do we mean to imply that the towns were named for the cars, or vice versa. Although there are several vehicles that derived their names from locations, this certainly is not true in many cases.
