The Camaro is Alice (I think an ex originally named it), but most friends call it the 'Maro (with a hick accent), 'merica (well its not called 'merica, they just yell it anytime it is mentioned. Example: Hey Josh what LSA are you running on the Camaro? Random friend listening: 'MERICA!!), small ***** car, or the mullet and hillbilly mobile.

I usually call my Miata "Miata" but sometimes Racecar. I call my Subaru "Subaru" or "Outback" and sometimes "the bus" because it's a wagon.

See if this works...



You can see "JGTC 33" for a Japanese Grand Touring Championship style (or actual?) R33 Gee-Dee-Ah. I have no idea what the story behind "JDMCOP" is.

Here you have a 5th generation Golf R32:

My first vehicle was a POS 85 Ford Ranger. After a few attempts on my life, I christened it "The Danger Ranger." I also threw an experimental sticker on the hood I picked up at Oshkosh because I was 16, just soloed and thought I was the ****. That begun rumors at school that it had some exotic swap and they called it the experimental. Little did they know she made all of 80hp at best.

Cost me $500 off an old farmer. 4cyl, am radio, power nothing. Pig **** smell came for free.

Can you even buy a decent running car for $500 these days?

Heh, let me rephrase: Can you buy a decent 10 year old used carfor $500 these days? My story was from almost 20 years ago.

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

Hey jpreston if you go with Tony, in reference to Tony Danza you in theory could just call your car "The Boss", or if it was me I would go with "Dirty Danza"!!
