Witty name for used car dealership?

A friend of mine is getting their car dealership license, but before they do that, they're looking for a witty yet relevant name.

So I turn to you, my fellow dopers.

Suggestions?

What city or part of the country?
Will the dealership specialize in any 'type' of car like sporty, economical, foreign, low end, high end?

Midwest. Not sure about specialties. Probably lower end domestics.

Once on a road trip, I passed a garage called Lemon Aide. Thought that was clever. Not what you're looking for, but it might be a jumping-off point.

There was a place here once called Jesus Motors. Yes, they were a bunch of flakes.

I think the point is to try to make customers WANT to buy.

If it were in Bismark, you could call it Auto von Bismark.

While I personally like automotive puns, it seems in my experience the lots with "fun" names tend to be the scuzzy buy-here-pay-here type places. It may be an insurmountable challenge to come up with a name that's clever but doesn't project an image of plaid-clad sleaze.

There used to be one around here named "Yvonne D'Carlot". Always amused me, but not enough to buy a car there.

I would not buy a car from a place with the word "lemon" in it, or any other self-deprecating business name. If they don't take themselves seriously, why should I?

How about something related to auto? You can just play with the names like auto occasion, auto ad, auto deals and many more such names.
