I knew that had to be in the list :mrgreen: Some of the names are very funny & creative. I would NOT have come up with anything as humorous & creative as most of those were.

I can't stop laughing. Is each plow going to be painted a different colour to match their names? I can just see it. Snow Plows The Movie, just like Disney's Cars. :lol:
