remember the DATSUN cars - aka nissan today ?
you ever wonder where the name datsun came from?
the nissan car company was ready to roll out a new car , but they didn't have a catchy name for it yet .
so they phoned a german professor of linguistics and asked for his help .
nissan : "professor , we have new car , need catchy name " ,
professor : "how soon you need new name ? " ,
nissan : "need new name two weeks ! " ,
professor : "dat soon ? " ,
nissan : "thankou very much , professor " .
and the new DATSUNS rolled off the assembly line .
