billboard mad libs

While I was in New York last weekend, I noticed a billboard which was sort of a rebus: first there was the letter 'I', then a red car, then the word 'you'. I was probably supposed to recognize what kind of a car it was, but I don't really excel at that kind of thing, so it was a bit mysterious to me.

I did try filling in the blank with a few car models to see if I could figure it out. Most make no sense at all, of course: 'I Camry You', 'I Skylark You', etc. I did think of a few which did create meaningful sentences, although I doubt any of these were what was intended:

  • I Escort You
  • I Eclipse You
  • I Ram You
Can you think of any others?
