Our readers, it seems, have crisscrossed every inch of the country looking for the wildest, weirdest, and wackiest street names, and since we launched our contest on December 20, they’ve come up with some amazing signs of our time.

We can’t tell you how many different places have streets named ThisaWay, or ThataWay. There are countless Yankees and Doodles and even Dandies. City planners must be a hungry lot, considering the number of Chicken Dinner Ways, Streets, and Places. And whatever the original intent, we’ve got some naughty minds who can’t send us enough entries for
Kitchen Dick Rd.
, Morning Wood, and
Hooker Lane
.

 

All told, we’ve received nearly 2500 entries, enough to get TCC’s Editorial Assistant Eric Edelstein to the eye doctor, all the while mumbling incoherently. But he’s finally finished up and it’s time to pick the winners.

 

Well, potential winners, anyway. The members of TheCarConnection team have narrowed our selection down to a Top Ten, and now we’d like you all to weigh in with your own choices by voting in this week’s TCC poll, which you’ll find on the home page. Please don’t send e-mails this time. They won’t count. They’ll just get our e-mail servers constipated again — Farfrompoopen, if you will.

 

We’ll tally things up at the end of the week, rolling in reader results with our own votes, and the grand-prize winners will be announced next Monday, February 20. Remember, top prize is a Garmin C330 portable GPS navigation system!

 

Most of our favorites came with pictures attached, so scan through the Scrapbook for a look at eight of our ten finalists.
