I'm not ashamed! My car's got a name - Calamity Jane. And everyone knows who I'm talking about when I say "I'm taking Jane out camping this weekend"
Really though, the name fits. I named this car because it definitely has a "personality" and she's kind of just a queen bitch. It makes more sense to me to be furious at an animate object than to be furious at an inanimate object... I'd feel significantly more insane shouting at something that has no mind of its own.
"the red one", or
"the black one", or
"the blue one".
I did give my daughter a new name: "Short Straw". I haven't let her get her drivers license yet so every time she need to go somewhere (and I mean constantly. . . ) my wife and I decide "who is going to get the Short Straw".
This of course replaces her child hood name were we caught her typing an age inappropriate text message to one of her friends: "Potty Thumbs".
My 65 fastback is called Sheila and is named after an MG convertible of somewhat ill repute.
The truck is called UGLY because when I first bought it and got it running, everybody asked me "why are you driving around in that old ugly truck".
The motorcycle is called ebony for reasons I should not mention on here but you can just use your imagination regarding that.

After years of not being able to think of one I finally decided on Madame Blue. If you are a STYX fan you know where I got the name from... Sometimes she is just Blue and sometimes Madame. sometimes both..
