Many of the Up! reviews I've read both in magazines and newspapers have had a rant over the use of the exclamation mark used in the name. Okay, we all know it's grammatically daft, but I kinda like it nonetheless - goes with the car's character. I certainly don't get uptight about it, andf that's after 36 years in journalism, including about 10 as a proof reader!!


What's the daftest car name you've ever come across? Mine has to be the Mazda Bongo Friendee!
