Default What do you name yer...um...car?

Alright, we know that there comes a time when people who are in love with their cars decide to take their affection to the next level and anthropomorphize their cars by giving them names.

So, what kind of cars have you named? What did you call them and why?

I'll start. My first car was a green 1981 Ford Grenada. Because it was long and green, I called it "The Green Bean". Which was easier to say and more PC than my original idea of "Green Giant's Johnson" or "The French Pickler"

1990 MX6 is "Swank Force One."

1988 MX6 is "Home School Prom Queen."

1993 Miata is "Gaijin Garbage."

Previously named my 92 Celica "Kabuto."

The MSM is "that thing."

2000 Jeep Cherokee is "Churkey."

Haven't named the Escort yet officially, but it is often referred to as "The Deathscrotum."

I cringe when the local Miata forum fagggots name their cars. It makes me think they love anime and live with their parents.

How about we name the OP instead. I vote for Mike Hunt.

I've never named a car. Seems weird to me. I have called my car names though.

This is Christine:


Named by my wife (she doesn't like it and the feeling is mutual apparently).

None of my other cars have names other than OEM.

Happy Halloween.

It seems weird to me that you have not named any of your cars. I have named all my cars, all my family has had names for their cars, and a majority of my friends have named their cars.

I got in the habit from the old exvitermini days, exposing me to the Australian custom of naming a car via the number plates (GTR 700, DVLSH, WARIO, etc). I had a customer/buddy in Oz around the same time and was always seeing pictures of the cars and their clever plates.

BDGR - like "badger." Pound for pound, a tough little bastard. But, at the end of the day, it's not much more than a big rodent.

I have called my car one particular name, but it was usually done so with a raised voice and often followed by projectile items. You know, tools and such.

I think its best to keep that name to myself to spare you the profanity.

First car I named was a Daytona Violet 95 M3. The first couple months I owned it, EVERY SINGLE TIME I drove it with the radio on, Elton John came on. It was a sorta gay purple anyway, so I named it Sir Elton.

Bought my 91 miata after that, so another gay Elton John reference only made sense. Levon.

Just bought a 97 and haven't decided on a name yet. Thinking Tony, from Hold Me Closer Tony Danza.
