See Youtube for a genuine. official 1940 Ford advertising film ("The New1940 Ford", as I recall) announcing the new "koo-pay". SinceFord said "koo-pay", that's good enough for me (and should be for all of you, too)!

Guess I will add since I started this nonsense, ive always said fa-ton. Our English gents may have a better grasp on this one though- 'Brough Superior'. I say broff, but I have heard many say bro (to me that's someone on the street, lol).
btw, living just below the mason Dixon line, there is a mix between creek and crick. I grew up with crick and that's where it stands, but then again my grandparents were from the deepest, darkest part of VA!
