DETROIT (PRWEB) January 11, 2006
If travelers want to get to Tennessee’s Constipation Ridge, they’ll need to take a drive up Farfrompoopin Lane.
Don’t be surprised by what is seen in the mists along New Jersey’s Shades of Death Road. Tired of telling strangers they’ve got the wrong address? Why not name your street This-Ain’t-It Road? America is crisscrossed by roadways with an assortment of wild, weird and wacky names, from Detroit’s Lois Lane to North Dakota’s Smashed-in-Buffalo-Head Road.
The folks at TheCarConnection.com, the Web’s Automotive Authority, have spotted plenty of these roads during their travels, but the site wanted to let readers contribute their own favorites, and as encouragement, TCC has launched the Wild, Weird and Wacky Street Names Contest, which runs now through the end of January.
“We’ve all seen street names that make us laugh hysterically,” said TCC founder and Publisher Paul Eisenstein. “We want to reward our reader’s eye for great street names as well as their sense of humor. And in the end, regardless of what street name gets the crown, the readers are the real winners.”
Details and rules can be found on TheCarConnection.com (http://www.thecarconnection.com/Extras/Contests/TCCs_Wild_Weird_and_Wacky_Street_Names_Contest.S207.A9766.html), but prizes include a top-line portable GPS navigation system.
In addition the Web’s Automotive Authority this week, includes TheCarConnection’s exclusive preview of the upcoming Los Angeles and Detroit auto shows. Readers can get a sneak peek at the reborn Chevrolet Camaro, as well as the new Mazda CX7 crossover, Dodge Challenger, Toyota Camry, Lexus LS450 and lots more.
TheCarConnection also has the inside scoop on the first Chinese cars to reach Detroit’s Cobo Hall conference center, and when they’ll reach showrooms across the U.S.
Launched in January 1997 by Detroit insider Paul Eisenstein, TheCarConnection.com (TCC) is the Web's Automotive Authority, offering a complete editorial source for news and reviews, spy shots and shopping guides, tips and expert advice and has won more awards than any other automotive source online. The site took home seven medals from the 2003 International Automotive Media Awards, a highly-valued prize drawing the global best among automotive media - including a gold medal for its auto show coverage. The IAMA also has declared TCC's Daily Edition "Best of the Web." TCC has captured a series of firsts in the prestigious Wheels Award, among the most respected of auto journalism honors. In 2003, TCC went 1-2-3 in the Internet category, despite unprecedented competition. And TheCarConnection has repeatedly topped the balloting in judging by its peers at the Society of Professional Journalists, earning more than a dozen awards in recent years.
