Glenn, I did not know that. There is always something to learn on this forum!

By the way in some places the word Zephyr is used as a synonym for passed gas or breaking wind to use another euphemism. I guess I could see someone saying that their motorhome breaks the wind so maybe that's the translation.

How 'bout Ellipse? An neat sounding word yeah. Incidentally, I sometimes have to correct people; ("no, Eclipse is a car by Mitsubishi"). Oh well...

Anyway, Ellipse defined for the record:

A closed, symmetric curve shaped like an oval, which can be formed by intersecting a cone with a plane that is not parallel or perpendicular to the cone's base. The sum of the distances of any point on an ellipse from two fixed points (called the foci) remains constant no matter where the point is on the curve.

We love the coach, though it doesn't look anything like a flat oval circle inside a cone.

Regards,
W.D.

Named after an interstate? Guess industry running out of names and numbers.

IH-45 makes me think of a 45 hp International Harvester.

Interesting, the car industry used to have really eloquent names for their cars, (some still do). Like my dad's '62 Buick, it shared a name with Amelia Earhart's airplane (Electra). The numbers came from the car's length, it was exactly 225 inches long.

Then it seems many went to letters and numbers also. Maybe it sounds more expensive to use just letters and numbers? Like the current line of Lincoln automobiles.

Regards,
W.D.

I think it's ironic that the "Live free or die" license plates are made by prisoners in the state jails.

Incidentally,I think the first vehicle called a "Zephyr" was a British Ford model in the early 1950s. It's up-market cousin was the "Zodiac" and the cheaper version was the "Consul". Lincoln also called one of theirs a "Zephyr" but I'm not sure when it was made.
