I don't really name cars. At home we have two classic Saab 900's. One's a convertible and the other is a coup?. We just just call the coup? "Coup?" and we call the convertible "Caab". Since it's a Saab Cabriolet, mix those two together and you get Caab.
My Jeep doesn't have a name. but I haven't had it for long, so who knows. My friends want me to call it daisy. As in Daisy Duke. But I don't know, it's a bit of a beast to be daisy.
My El Camino was called the Elky. And whenever I got in and started driving I'd always say "what's up dude" or What's up brosif" or something like that.And when it died on me it was always "YOU F**KING MOTHER F**KER!!!" Then I would apologise.
When I was little me and my sister called my mum's astro van Thomas. After Thomas the tank engine.
However, someone I went to school with called their old grey Mitsubishi Magna wagon 'Slugworth', which I think was one of the names of the evil rival candy makers in 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. It was one of those early 90's ones (TR series, AFAIK) with the awful 4cyl Astron engine and auto trans. It was worthy of the name.
No, I'm kidding, haven't named either of my two cars. I think when I got my first car I might have even tried to give it a name, but I guess I'm just not the sort of person to name their cars because I couldn't find one I liked.
My old Vaz had a proper name-giving cermony! Or, a girl poured beer over the hood and named it "Ivan". My workmates called it "T-34" and my wife called it "The Blue Fear" after she almost ended up in a ditch a snowy morning.
think the only person i know who named their car was when me and a few friends named my friend's beater the vista cruiser (from that 70s show). it was a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville in grandma green with power everything but was also broken everything.
