Blast from the past.

I never thought I'd see another - my favourite car name of all time. And there it was, sitting at the traffic lights in front of me.

The Nissan Cedric.

Classic name, isn't it. I'd love to have been in the Nissan product team's meeting when the name was chosen.

Cedric. Brilliant. Even beats my best friends the Tiida and Yaris.

Plans for the Tarquin have been shelved...

Redstar, I've thought about the naming meeting often too. My guess is that they wanted an 'up-market' western name - the Nissan Wayne or the Nissan Fred wouldn't have had the connotations they wanted - and one of them thought Cedric would be just right.
