Yes, I do.
Although some might yank my “car guy” card from me for admitting it.
A brief introduction to the Davis livery, for those of you who haven’t been acquainted yet:
The most well-known, and popular, is of course, Herbie:
Named for obvious reasons, of course, and just as temperamental in real-life as in the movies.
Not a 63, rather a 69 with the not too common autostick feature.
If you are looking for a 63, meet Christine, the boy’s Corvair. However; he calls her Helga.
Obviously, I call her Christine because dark maroon classic American piece of metal (even if it isn’t necessarily the right brand.) It never killed anybody that we know of, but he is adamant that it won’t kill him, perhaps why he calls it Helga instead. For those of you keeping score, she is a Powerglide automatic convertible.
Despite Helga being a Germanic sounding name, and applied to a non-Germanic ride, the livery boasts another vehicle from Herbie’s lineage, that being Old Blue. He isn’t the oldest in the livery, but he is the oldest blue thing in the livery, so the title fits him. 5 speed, straight stick. Did toy around the idea with calling him Bugs, like Bugs Bunny (since he is a rabbit pickup truck.) But, if you say Old Blue, people know who you are talking to or about.
That tears it for the 20th century part of the livery. Here’s Mary, my wife’s 2004 Lincoln Navigator. We usually call it The Navi. The thing is that huge. Automatic, 4 WD, 8 cylinder v8 with an appetite for gasoline that would make any muscle car owner take notice.
Apologies for the stock photo, it’s what I have readily available.
For those of you not schooled in American History, Mary Lincoln was the 16th president’s wife.
