RE: Bearcat Origin
Was the popular Stutz sports car of the early 20th century named after our beloved athletic teams?

According to Wikipedia (and that's the accepted authority on everything) - NO

Quote:The original production Bearcat was introduced in the Series A of 1912. The first public mention of the car (then spelled "Bear Cat" ) is in an advertisement in the 1912 program for the Indianapolis 500 mile race. This ad also was the first to use the soon to be famous Stutz slogan "The Car that made good in a day" referring to the Stutz racer's 11th-place finish in the 1911 Indianapolis 500.
