Best Makes and Models for Vintage Bikes?

Some names of these stand out for their humorous aspects. Others just have cool names. Which ones have made you do a double-take?

For example, the Schwinn Premis stands out as one model that you read wrong the first time.

Post some names of the bikes that have caught your eye.

It has a long seat tube and a slack head tube.

Carlton Longfellow and George Longstaff's bikes come to mind, too.

Faggin (I feel like I'd constantly be apologizing to a wide array of people)
Terry Despatch ("no, it's not mispelled, there is no 'i' in Georgena, either")
Cinelli WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet (yes, they put the entire name on the top tube)
Cinellli Willing (if they'd have gone with Willin' I could see Little Feat on the pedals....)
Cinelli XLR8R (really, the marketing dept has nothing better to do?)
Columbus Super Muscle tubing. (I mean, really, it's tubing)
Surly Long Haul Trucker (must be union)
Trek Antelope (Llama, maybe, but agile and not fast, it ain't)
Motobecane Mirage (C'mon, you can see it AND you can touch it)

And just think, there could be, at this very moment, a kid in Europe, riding a stolen Stolen while eating stollen. A beautiful thought.
