Default Car Names

I haven't given my car a name yet and it has me thinking.

What did you name your car and why ?

Don't do it...only Navy people give names to vehicles.

But the Navy folks I know to be very organized and clinically functional. They impress me enough to want to name the car. How about...Ethyl.. for what does not exist in gasoline anymore!

Whoa, Dave in Greyson, you are close enough for me to run into at a show or cruise. Show me some pics please!

My 66 coupe is called "The Mistress" because she diverts so much of the resources away from my real family

I name my toys so it is easier to reference them when people ask about a particular item. So it is no longer the red or blue sol but Holly or Solitaire. And don't ask about the cannondale as you'll need to tell me if you are referring to Didi, Julie, Vicki, or Jackie. Which motorcycle: Raven or Maggie?

Just imagine if you didn't name your kids and people asked about them. What would you say: number one or number two

The red Mustang below is Charlotte. My wife named her after we bought her in Charlotte NC at the Autofair.

My DD is a turbo Subaru named Samantha. Just seemed like a sexy name for a car that scares the hell out of me, and WILL get me in trouble some day.

I named my 67 coupe Lilian after my grandma's passing about 3 months after I got her.

Haha, my wife calls my car the "piece of crap" for a couple reasons. Since I rebuilt the car completely, there were too many bugs, kinks, and break downs early on, for her liking.

Having me break it twice on the race track, doesn't help things, either.

Deep down I think that she likes it, but she (the mistress) gets a lot of attention
