Broken: Auto body shop name

PercisionC.D. Tavares submits a picture taken in New Port Richey, Florida:

I took this picture of a place named  "Percision Auto Body."

As a general rule, if you give your business a name implying competitive superiority, using words such as "precision," it's often more persuasive if you can avoid misspelling them.


True. Then again it could be an intentional misspelling to invent a name no one else uses. Anyone asked the staff?

I'd be afraid these guys would perform precussive maintenance.

Or maybe perventive maintainence.

I'm more worried about "Percise Pain."

(Yes, I know it's probably paint or painting...)

Maybe it's owned by Mr. Percision, Joe unfortunate coincidence.

For what it's worth, Google has a ton of instances of the word "percision":

Results 1 - 10 of about 153,000 for percision. (0.28 seconds)

You might be surprised at how many of those are business names.

Maybe the founder's last name was Percision? or maybe it's on purpose to get people who can't spell his competitiors name Precision Auto to come to their shop instead..

I know this place. It's not owned by a "Mr. Percision" -- the owner's name is Grover. And in the phone book it appears as "Precision." Of course, maybe the phone company misspelled it. :-)

Perhaps it's a Florida thing. There is also a Percision Speedometer in Parker.
