I never named my cars before the one I have now but this one I refer to as The Silver Bullet or sometimes The Silver Surfer.

I once had a big shitty ‘78 Jeep Cherokee me and my buddies called “The Fat Dank Daddy.” The same car was once also called “Helen.” Not sure why.

@Trillian

When thee sawn sets, I vill be hard at work just like those guys behind me. ~

bob_'s avatar

@Neizvestnaya That’s a cute name. Thing is, my car is a dude, so it needs a more badass name.

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@bob_ How about The Red Devil?

tearsxsolitude's avatar

@bob_ I got this from @Pied_Pfeffer , but I think it’d be cool with the name Diablo!

bob_'s avatar

@Pied_Pfeffer Not bad, but I think it sounds a bit too cliché.

@tearsxsolitude I’m in Mexico, so Diablo wouldn’t sound “exotic” XD

tearsxsolitude's avatar

@bob_ Oh bummer =[

Hmmm…how about…Red Rage! Grrrrrr!

tearsxsolitude's avatar

@bob_ You hate all our suggestions don’t you!? LOL

@tearsxsolitude No hablo inglés.

I don’t have a name for my current car. But I used to drive a massive green boat and I referred to it as the Mean Green Neffie Machine.

tearsxsolitude's avatar

@bob_ Haha didn’t think so!

<—muy picky

Trillian's avatar

@bob_ How ‘bout la rossa roadsta’? Roll the “r” really hard in both words.

tearsxsolitude's avatar

@bob_ Haha I get that. It’s your car, your very lovely car. You should be picky when you pick out the name. You should love it with no doubt =] You do realize though that now that we’re all involved you have to tell us what you end up naming it!

bob_'s avatar

@tearsxsolitude In Spanish we already roll our r’s :)

@tearsxsolitude Sure! XD

tearsxsolitude's avatar

@bob_ Yay I can’t wait to know the outcome! Yippy!

Trillian's avatar

um…. wow. ok.

Oh, wait, that first part was directed at @Trillian XD

@Neizvestnaya Firething?

diavolobella's avatar

I just call it (2010 Honda Fit) “The Baby Car” because it’s little and cute. :)

jerv's avatar

My car is named Bonny, after Anne Bonny. Take a look at the pic and link and the connection is fairly obvious. If you don’t know who Anne Bonny is though, the reference is lost, hence the second link.

Molly was the name of my Sebring convertible.

Eva was the name of my SRT-4.

Blue Dragon – the sunshade has eyes, and the car is a beautiful color of blue. When it’s clean enough to tell the color, that is. my grandchildren love the sunshade – my car is “the car with eyes”

Hypocrisy_Central's avatar

1981 Hyundai Excel Gs called Skeleto aka “Whitey”.

lillycoyote's avatar

@bob_ For that car? I would suggest Dorothy or The Ruby Slipper.

AstroChuck's avatar

No. Ford Motor Company did that.

diavolobella's avatar

My SO got me a big Jeep Cherokee Laredo to drive on occasion (before I bought the Baby Car) and it’s called “The Barnaclemobile.” That’s because my nickname is The Barnacle. It even has a license plate on the front that says “Barnacle.” He may be selling it at some point though, and then the plate will go on the Baby Car, but it will still be called the Baby Car. The plate will just mean there is a Barnacle inside it. :)

Pied_Pfeffer's avatar

@AstroChuck What? “Lemon”?

ZEPHYRA's avatar

Red Batmobile!

kenmc's avatar

My first car was a ‘93 Chevy Lumina. I called her Lumie most of the time, and occasionally “The Zoomina”. Now I have a Buick Regal which is just… the Buick. :/

I called my first car, at 16, Allie. I had not thought about this in years. Now it amuses me greatly. Little Orphan Allie. She was a cute little Nissan. I had lots of band stickers on her. I don’t know why I came up with the name; it just seemed to fit her. I haven’t named a car since. However, one day I will own an Aston Martin and it will have a name.

MaekoPoisoning's avatar

her name was Tohru Honda-San! she was a honda

Nullo's avatar

@free_fallin Out of curiosity, what would you name the Aston Martin? M? Q? Something wholly unrelated to the James Bond franchise?

free_fallin's avatar

@Nullo It definitely wouldn’t have anything to do with James Bond. I’m not really a fan of James Bond. We’ll have to see when I get the car; I’ll know it when I see it.

Neizvestnaya's avatar

It’s new name as of today is, DOA.

Rhodentette's avatar

My Ford Fiesta is called Boghog, after the Nowhattian Boghog in Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

TexasDude's avatar

Well I have a Jeep Liberty now, so my answer has to change.

I named her “Liberty Prime” after the 40 foot communist killing robot from the videogame Fallout 3.
