Default Automotive Brand Nicknames

Here's one, as many marques are referred to their nicknames, which are based on the appearance of the logos. Here are a few, and let's see which ones that I miss, that others here may add, or even correct me on...

Chevrolet - Bow tie division
Buick - Triple Shield
Cadillac - formerly called the Wreath and Crest, but now, with the latest logo, just Crest, I believe
Ford - The Blue Oval
Chrysler - (previous nickname) The Pentastar
Dodge - Crosshairs (but Ram uses this for the grill with some models, and Ram was once part of Dodge)
Maserati - The Trident
Ferrari - Prancing Horse
Lamborghini - Raging Bull
Audi - Four Circles
Volkswagen - simply "VW"
Rolls-Royce - Flying Lady
Jaguar - Leaping Cat
Mercedes-Benz - Three-Pointed Star
Pontiac Lives through BMW and Lincoln - via their split grills and attitude!
