Vehicle

Module to generate vehicle related entries.

Overview

Most methods are related to cars/automobiles: a vehicle() name is comprised of a car manufacturer() and model(). You can also generate fuel(), type(), and color(), as well as typical car registration IDs vin() and vrm().

If you prefer two wheels, you can generate a bicycle() type instead.
