  2. They did Market research and then changed the name to Toyota to appeal to Americans....
  3. Akio Toyoda, the President of Toyota Motor spells it that way, but thanks for the thread.

    psytrade is correct , Toyoda is the founding family's name , they thought the D had a heavy feel to it in english. Japanese like a lighter feel . Many cars were named after flowers in Japan as they didn't have a macho culture attached to them. The Nissan Z car was called the Fairlady in Japan. How many Americans would have bought into that.

    lol, my apologies to Bloomberg and Mr. Toyoda.
  6. Star Wars geeks prefer Toyoda. :cool:
  7. did you know that pac man was originally called puck man but they changed puck to pac because it was to close to the "f" word.
