Car model names are often meant to convey a certain style and one of the most common ways to do this is to use the name of a city or place.

Some like the Chrysler New Yorker and Toyota Tacoma make a lot of sense, with the luxury car and off-road truck having strong associations with their namesake localities.

The Chevy Malibu? Maybe back in the 1960s when it was one of the coolest convertibles on the road, but not so much now that it’s just a mid-size sedan often bulking up a lot of cars rent.

Below are five photos of new and classic vehicles with clues as to where their names came from.
