What name have you given your car?

Asked by scotsbloke (3751 points ) December 15th, 2009

We tend to name things. Especially our cars.

What name have you given yours and why?
Also, is your car male or female?

Mine is a Toyota Lucida so is called “LUCY” and it’s a GIRL even though it looks quite masculine (could be a ladyboy)

Dead ladies car, becuase I bought it from a patient who passed away. She was a lot of fun and named it herself!

Mine’s an Audi A6, but really I don’t call it anything other than “the blue Audi” because my dad’s is “the black Audi” (which he lets me drive sometimes). His is also an A8, so sometimes I refer to mine as the A6. Either way, it doesn’t really have much of a nickname, sorry. :P

Caaaargh!!!

When I bought it, there were “gold” coins scattered all over the floor and a stuffed crab in the rear window. The air freshener matches the hood.

Ooh, I see the other two car naming questions have been moderated. I answered:

My truck’s name was Arthur Dentless, but now he is Arthur Dent.

My Cobalt’s name is Cobie, because right after I got it, someone told me that “Cobies are tight!”

I drive a Trailblazer now that we just call The Blazer. My fist car was a red Chevy Cavalier. It broke down all the time. My friend called it the Hemrroid or the ‘Roid because it was small, red and painful everytime it broke down and he had to look at it for me!

My ‘62 190d is named Helga, my ‘72 220d is Madeleine. When I finish restoring the ‘49 170d I will name her.
