Powerstroke or Scorpion?

I know it isn't out yet, but what are all your thoughts; Do you want to see them keep the Powerstroke name or the Scorpion name?

Why farm half when you can FARMALL!

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power;
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
Who sows a field, or trains a flower,
Or plants a tree, is more than all.- Whittier.

WTF, I don't know how this happened, but I posted this one twice. If someone could delete one, that would be great. I messed up. Don't know how, but I did.

I like the Powerstroke name. Hopefully there isn't some type of license agreement with IH & Ford can keep using it.
