All my part/half running cars have been POS I/II/III/IV.

My 94 has no name, because it isn't a heap.

I never understood the whole "talking to your car" thing.

My wife has her car's name on the license plate. Anytime I drive it I get strange looks, and people ask me if my name is "Pookie". It doesn't help that it's a Beetle either. She actually holds CONVERSATIONS with the car. I think it might be somewhat alive, being that anytime we have money to spare, it breaks.

Happened the DAY we got our tax return checks last year, timing belt, say good bye to tax return. Then the day we submitted the bid on our future house (yeah, we got it, move in the 29th!!) it tossed up a CEL, cracked the thermostat housing, split a heater core hose, and riped out a motor mount. You think I am just playing the coincidence game...but all that crap happened IMMEDIATELY AFTER (2 days prior) getting it fully inspected by a VW Certified Tech that is know as the "deadliner" who is a friend of ours. He is our mechanic, and he works on my cars exclusively, and he knows if he finds it, we'll pay him to fix it. All he found was that the rear brake clips were in backwards. THAT'S IT. So in 2 days all that crap broke. He even looked at all that crap, and, well, he was like, "HOW THE **** DOES THAT HAPPEN IN 2 DAYS!!!" So yeah, Herbie, I mean, Pookie, is a money hungry POS!!!!

Well it's still less HP than I made with a supercharger uncorrected at 11 PSI. LMAO. Sure it was a 1.8, but all I have to do is post that graph. Maybe I will.
