FFS... for the n-th time CELICA DOES NOT MEAN SQUAT in spanish.. it never has.

I'm sick and tired of reading endless Celica histories saying the Celica means Celestial in spanish and bla bla bla.. in that case Civic then means toilet bowl in Swahili... dayum

But you know what IS interesting? Honda roughly translated from Japanese means something like "origin/beginning of rice", I think Toyota has to do with rice as well. Rice being as important as it is in Japan, it make sense, just mildly amusing that calling Japanese cars "rice" is kind of accurate, and actually a compliment.
