Caroche historical trivia

One report notes that the original name for the 1962 to 1974 model was a bit of a disaster. The first cart was named “Caroche,” which was supposed to provide it with a sense of elegance. But that intention backfired, as golfers didn’t know how to pronounce the French word for carriage and many ended up saying something like “car roach,” which soon morphed into “cockroach.” As such, that name was quickly abandoned.
