Some Japanese Car Models

Happiness for me would be walking in a large parking lot in Japan, looking at the various model names of cars. By far, Toyotas are the most commonly seen cars there, but the familiar model names here in America, such as Camry and Avalon, are missing in Japan. Here are some names for you to ponder; not all are on Toyotas:

This last one is definitely not a Corvette. On our previous trip to Japan I was captivated by two other models, the VITZ and the JIXY. I often wonder who comes up with these names; every time I see a Nissan VERSA here, I imagine it parked in a garage next to a Nissan VICE. Why not?
