Coolest factory name for a 4wd ever?

Just out of curiosity, what factory name do you guys think is the absolute coolest ever applied to a production 4wd vehicle?

While Defender is really close to the top, I always thought that the FWD 'Battleship' had the best name ever. Even cooler is that it was during the era of the Model-T.

Also, what about coolest production car name ever? I was always partial to either Baraccuda, but think I'll give the nod to the DeSoto 'Firesweep'

G-wagen in it's full proper german.

Road Runner for a car. Got to love the WB connection there and the Beep Beep horn.

I don't know about my all time favorite, but there's a couple I'd like to see:
How about the Wannabee or the Visgoth?

The first time I heard Unimog, it stuck in my head. I have never forgotten what one is, or looks like since that day.
Cool truck with an okay name:http://www.aev-conversions.com/Vehicle_Brute.html
It seems that most American made cars are named after an object (Bronco, expedition, etc..)
while a lot of imports use numbers (911, RX7, etc..).
Has anyone else noticed this?

What about the FC101 "Vampire"?

For a car I'd say the Pontiac Sunfire. I mean, it was the moulding of the Sunbird and Firebird into one. Like a double Phoenix, and what a great job they did with it too

I had a 1959 Willys Overland Wagon years ago. I always thought the Overland was a cool name.

El Camino.....how cool is that for a 4WD. "The Way" Is that a name or a statement.

It's hard to get past the fact that it's already identified with a vehicle that is neither car or truck though.
