My son and I are working on a project to come up with car makes/models named after birds. So far we have:

American Bantam Buick Skylark Eagle Talon Ford Falcon (and T-bird, I guess) Hupmobile Skylark Pontiac Firebird & Phoenix & Sunbird SS (Swallow Sidecars, predecessor of Jaguar) Studebaker Hawk & Lark

So what else is there?

Buick Skyhawk (Chevy Monza clone) Nissan Bluebird (home-market Nissan) Packard Hawk (the Stude-bodied Packard) Willys Aero-Eagle hardtop (1952-54) ...and that's all I can think of right now.

I recall seeing a Buick showcar called the Flamingo. It was a non-customized 1961 or '62 Invicta convertible and it was the painted Flamingo pink, with matching leather interior and deep pile Flamingo pink carpeting. I never saw one on the road.

Don't forget the Roadrunner.and Superbird

I remembered the Roadrunner after posting this. Considering it's our state bird (NM), I guess I'm just not a big Mopar fan!

Over here at the Heritage Motor Centre, in Gaydon (UK) our rooftop restaurant is named the Kestral Suite after the famous RILEY Kestral. We also have many of the birds in the neighbourhood too.

Yep, and before Chrysler came out with the Eagle marque to give the former AMC and Renault dealers something to sell, there was an AMC model called the Eagle in the late 70s. It was a 4WD passenger car based on, I think, the Concorde and Spirit bodies. Not a huge success in the marketplace for a variety of reasons, it served as proof of principle for the unibody and the 4WD technology that would start the sport/utility vehicle revolution in the Cherokee.

Wasn't there an English car called the Humber Snipe?

And don't forget the Plymouth Road Runner
