Falcon and Thunderbolt - Ford names or ?

  Ford Motors made the Ford Falcon, a small sedan, for quite a while, no longer produced they're still sought after as collectables.  Ford also had a model of the Fairlane, I think, that was named the Thunderbolt - kind of a factory hot rod.  But Ford wasn't the first to use either model name.
The Chrysler Falcon
  The Chrysler Falcon would have been the answer to Fords Thunderbird and Chevrolets Corvette but only three were made, one still exists.  It was nice looking but underpowered with an inline 6 because it was meant to be "a gentleman's car".

The Chrysler Thunderbolt
  The Chrysler Thunderbolt was a concept car and a few were built in the 1950's.  Aerodynamic I suppose for the time but kind of ugly too.
