My ex used to name cars, not something I ever got into. Can't recall any of the names now.

I don't name my vehicles.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Before we got two new cars, one was “piece of crap” and the other “shitbox”.

Never named my cars, but my first one was a Dodge Dart Swinger and I would call it Dodge Dart Swinger. Other cars I would just call 'my car' or 'the car'. But the Dodge Dart Swinger was Dodge Dart Swinger.

such a great phrase... not much of a car, but a great phrase...

I've never really been one for naming my cars and usually refer to them directly by their model name only, but my Dad had one like this he called "The Super Dodge"-

Big One (2004 Nissan Quest)
Little One (2009 MINI Clubman)

Sometimes This One or That One (requires following the pointed finger)

Both are red so color is not a simple discriminator.

I named all my cars.

1980 Celica I named Shelly
1986 VW Jetta named Greta
1986 Mustang Named Marilyn
1987 Ford Ranger named Bud
2000 Mustang named Marilyn2
2005 Mazda Minivan I called Oki-oko, roughly "fat girl"
I had a long term rental of 2010 Ford Focus. I named her Foquina. If I had kept her she would have been Focette (Focus-Coquette).
2015 Mazda3 Hatchback I call Oshiriko, roughly big booty girl (girl with large buttocks)

I've always named Cars (or derived vehicles like my van or a CUV) after girls.
Trucks are guys, they carry on their shoulders.

I had a gray '78 Renault Le Car I called Gray Matter but otherwise, the only other car I've named is my "new" '74 TR6. She's "Sabrina", based on a heads-up by davester!

I named my green 1972 Datsun (yes, before they changed to Nissan) station wagon the "Green Hornet." Sometimes it became the "Green Weenie" when it wasn't acting right.

My first car was a 1976 Fiat Spyder (124), which I named Speedbuggy. As all Fiats of that era, it died a rapid death. I was young, so I attributed its passing to the fact that I had named it. Therefore, to this day, I name no cars.

My son’s teenage friends decided his 1982 BMW 318Ti should be named Betsy. It was fortuitous, as we ended up selling the car for a profit.

That recent experience has me rethinking the whole car naming phenomenon. Perhaps Speedbuggy shall rise (run) again.

I've never thought to name my vehicles other than the name the manufacturer gave them. I just call them what they are. Silverado, Sierra, Citation, Regal, Wildcat, etc. "Yeah, that's my '75 Regal."

For some reason, this thread makes me think of the SmartCar I seen in a parking lot a few years ago. The license plate frame said "Dishwasher Safe". smiley12

I seldom drive a car more than 5 years, so I don't name them.

My lovely wife’s first new car is also the only one with a name - Velvet.

We’ve never had two cars of the same model so never needed more than ‘Civic’ etc.
