Rollsachero, Or, How To Put Grey Poupon On Your Hot Dog

Illustration for article titled Rollsachero, Or, How To Put Grey Poupon On Your Hot Dog

We have covered the Rolls Royce that knows how to party before, but on this Maximum El Camino Day we have a new argument for naming it, and much better pictures. Though Rolls' are pretty cars with a lovely pedigree that leak oil on your garage floor, picking one from another in the malaise era is tough, so we're just going to call it a Rolls - but what about that suffix? Previously we called it a Rollsamino, but if you look back through the lineage, a strong case for -achero can be made.


Rolls Royce has been passed around in its history, the recent back and forth between BMW and VW was a bit of a drama, but before that the Rolls Royce brand was owned by the British company Vickers. Now, Vickers was a industrial company more in line with aero-engines, steel, and the Ministry of Defense, but they also acquired the Cosworth brand in 1990. Said brand has a well known affiliation with Ford, and was sold in part to none other than than Ford Motor Company. Rollsachero, now that's a twisted path to an inane naming convention if ever there was one.

Rolls Royces of this era used GM/Harrison/Delco A/C compressors, so a Rolls-Camino could be correct too.
