Question Name help needed

So ive decided on nameing my truck either Tonka (cause its bright yelllow and would look awesome with Tonka decals on the side), or Identity Crisis (driver fender says ranger xlt, passenger fender says ranger, and vin # claims its an edge). So what do yall think?

P.S. if its named Tonka, i would fix the badging to just say ranger.

Tonka may sound cool, but it's been done thousands of time since the 70's.
at the time, the headquarters/manufacturing facility was located in Spring Park, MN
on the shores of Lake Minnetonka, hence the name "Tonka"
people even put "tonka" symbols on large dump trucks and other consruction type vehicles.
so, Basically, i'm saying NO. Don't copy others. Be an original.
Besides, Tonka toys are now made with cheap plastic. Would you want your truck to be know as a piece of cheap plastic?

Tonka found out that they could produce a plastic toy for half the cost than the original metal ones and still charge the same ammount.
I've seen brand new, in the box metal tonka toy dump trucks/cranes/bulzozers go for as much as $300 each at auctions.

Those cheap bastards. I used to have the entire bright yellow construction fleet of trucks and they were all made of metal. You could literally dig holes with them!

Or you could go look at the pictures of his truck and realize what a massive swollen horse's ass you are. Not surprising through. Considering of your 134 posts, nearly 100 of them are in the "FRF Afterhours" thread and of the remaining 40, most of them are insulting other's trucks or talking about how much more wonderful your truck is compared to others. I guess I'm surprised.
