I suspect Omega was first.

Speaking of car names for pipes, lucky no one thought of Studebaker (which my old Pappy referred to as a "Steadybreaker), or Edsel.

Where do you think the "Lark" came from?  Very Happy

Pinto beans are good with cornbread and a sliced up onion on the side.

I had a pinto years ago too and almost got rear ended! Shocked  I was stopped waiting for traffic  to make a left turn at the bottom of a hill when a 4x4 truck came barreling over the hill with a man his wife and small child in the truck. He locked up the brakes and started sliding trying to stop. The car I was waiting on passed by and I gunned it!!! Unfortunately the man in the truck had lost control and went into the ditch. As I gunned the pinto I could see the truck flipping end over end in my rear view mirror. He had hit the end of a culvert. As soon as I was clear of the intersection I jumped out of the car and ran to check on whoever was in the truck. It had landed on it's roof and I was horrified when I heard the screams of a baby!!! I was able to pry the door open and get them out.Thankfully this happened in front of a hospital. In the end all were ok THANK GOD!!!

No more pintos for me! Laughing
I did have a Vega with a SB 350 for a while, what a wild ride! Laughing
I also built a Chevy Luv with a SB 283, Lots Of Fun!!!
